After the initial difficulties with Flowplayer 6 the new FV WordPress Flowplayer is released!
FV Flowplayer 6 it out and it has some great new features:
- HLS support in the Flash engine - making the HLS playback possible in basically every browser.
- Subtitles button with multilingual support - we need to do more testing on this one
- Engine switching in playlists - making it possible to mix the video formats.
- Better skin and other improvements
- Faster than version 5
- Improved YouTube playback
FV Flowplayer playing HLS Stream. If you have Flash installed, this will play even if you don't have Mac with Safari, iOS device or an Android.
There were also some issues - a big thank you goes to our users reporting the issues quickly - these are related to the new improved skin on our player:
- CSS generator bug - fixed
- Player buttons gone when using CDN - we will work on simplifying this, in the meantime check our FAQ
One of the issues which we were facing is that core Flowplayer changes its license keys on each release. We have spent a lot of time making sure the transition is smooth and trouble-free. If you run into any issues, let us know!
More features and improvements are coming
Now that FV Flowplayer 6 is out, we finally have time to work on other features, such as
- making sure Vimeo counts our video plays
- playlist presets
- cleaning up interface for some of the new features (speed buttons, user AB loop in Pro version)
Thanks for trying FV Plugins!

- More resources, how-tos and documentation available on our site
- Pro licenses available
- Support available on our FV Flowplayer forums
