Our free video player for WordPress FV Flowplayer featured only a single playlist style for a long time. We made the required code improvements to open the huge potential of custom playlist styles.
Default playlist style
By default you get playlist thumbnails below the player.
You can organize your videos into tabs easily.
This playlist style is most compact. You have to hover the player to get previous/next item arrows.
Other style which will be added soon is “Vertical playlist” as seen in this demo.
All of the above players are set to play Vimeo videos which is our Pro feature.
Here’s how it looks like when you edit our shortcode using our shortcode editor:
Picking the desired playlist style
We reworked our Vimeo and CloudFront integration, we are currently doing some final testing. The new version will also feature improved Video Ads functionality which lets you put up your own video ads and then select which ones should be used as a video preroll/postroll on each individual video you have or across your whole site.
FV Player VAST is also awaiting a new release – we worked on improving the iPad compatibility. Turns out our plugin was not always playing the VAST ads on these devices as their behavior is inconsistent – depending on whether your video is already cached or not.
- You can install our plugin via WordPress
- You can also buy our license and get the Pro extension (advanced Vimeo integration, video lightbox, quality switching)
- More resources, how-tos and documentation available on our site
- Support available on our FV Flowplayer forums
