Making the web work for you
Am I the only one having problems to get 1.1 working with safari?
Could you share some more details about your issues with 1.1. and Safari? As a temporary measure, I would suggest you download and use FV Flowplayer 1.0.6 which is also listed above.
Sorry for your issues.
Could you tell me what CSS I need to edit to remove the grey box that appears around the play button when hovering over the splash image.
thanks for finding the solution for Coda-Slider.
About the CSS, and the grey box appearing when hovering splash image, this is new to us and it does not appear on out test sites. It might be come collision with your existing CSS.
Our CSS styles are located in css/flowplayer.css, and there is some styling for splash images also in models/flowplayer-frontend.php around line 117.
Zdenka – Thanks for the attempt to help. Unfortunately, I don’t know enough to take it from here. Do you have the php code in full that I should use? Something that starts with
Thanks … Zachary
Hello, I used the flowplayer for a while and it worked perfect. but lately I get a black screen if I press the play button. Please advise. Thanks in advance.
it’s hard to tell what went wrong, could you maybe provide more details, maybe a link to the page?
This is the link http://www.adadproductions.com
If I go to settings – fv-wordpress-flowplayer the example video witch is normally playing has also a black screen. So I think it’s a bug in the upgrade.
I checked out the link and after refreshing the page the video played well. But I noticed you’re using splash screen along with autoplay and autobuffering. Could you please try to turn off both, autoplay and autobuffering, as these are useless as long as you use splash image, maybe this causes that the video doesn’t play correctly when the page is loaded for the first time.
Thanks for your advise. It seems that the problem occurs if I use the splashscreen. Since the splashscreen is important for me and it worked in the pass is there a solution for that?
Call me thick if you like but I can’t workout how to get the video to align left. It keeps wanting to center on the page. Any help would be appreciated.
I just can’t get the plug-in to work. I get a black box where the video should be. I have inserted in index.php and page.php & still can’t get it to work.
Since upgrading to WP 3.1, I’m having trouble with FV Flowplayer. This is the error I keep getting when I hit the Publish Button in a Post:
Fatal error: Class ‘flowplayer_frontend’ not found in /home/content/r/o/n/ronsavelo/html/wp-content/plugins/fv-wordpress-flowplayer/controller/shortcodes.php on line 10
the centering is set in the css/flowplayer.css file in the flowplayer_container.
If you want to change the alignment of single videos, you can do that by wrapping the whole shortcode into one div with the defined style:
<div style=”float: left”>
Hope this helps you,
I have a playlist with 3 videos. What is the syntax. I tried the pipe (|), comma, and space.
Neither of these separators work.
P.S. Love this plugin – The others do NOT work with IE/Explorer. This plug-in does!!!
I’m sorry I did not exactly understood what have you inserted into index.php or page.php
The shortcodes should be placed into the posts.
For the grey box itself, please check whether you footer contains the wp call <?php wp_footer(); ?>
For more information about this please see our FAQ.
Sorry, but our plugin does not support playlists.
We tested the flowplayer in the new WP 3.0.1, and we were not able to replicate the problem you encountered.
Could you please try to reinstall the flowplayer plugin in case some of the files got corrupted during the wordpress update?
Can I pop-up a PayPal buy now button?
I tried to put in the PayPal code on the PopUp area of the prompt.
It did not translate very well and did not show at the end of the video. Was this the intent of the popup?
thanks for reporting these problems, we’ll fix them in the next release of the plugin.
Thanks for making this plugin available, +1 for Amazon S3 Support. I read in the readme that you might be considering it.
Hi. Thanks for this plugin.
There is couple of thing I would like to know;
– Is there any chance you will add the Embed plugins and Streaming plugins/Extensions to this plugin in the future?
– If not, can somebody give a guide on how to add those plugins/extensions to this (FV WordPress Flowplayer)?
Thank yoy in advance.
We have no immediate plans to work on streaming plugins. FV Flowplayer is focused on self-hosted videos. It’s a way to avoid getting a bunch of YouTube branding on your site leading people away from your site somewhere else.
We are more interested in supporting hmtl 5 than true streaming. That said, we will support streaming going forward once somebody adds the code.
Please release an unbranded version of the player.
finally this plugin works on my blog. However, I have a flowplayer license. Is there a way I can put my license and avoid the flowplayer logo when using full screen? And if that is not possible, at least when someone click on the flowplayer logo on full screen, this opens in another page?
adding license code is not supported at the moment, but we are going to add this feature. We will work on this functionality over the next week, and we’ll be glad if you became a beta tester for us.
If anybody else is interested in beta testing a new version of fv wordpress flowplayer, please do not hesitate and write us a comment here.
I love your plugin and I’m happy it’s growing… So I would be interested in beta program, please send me some information about it.
thanks for the interest!
We’ve added your email into our mailing list. Everytime we need to test a new version, we’ll send you an email with all details.
FV Flowplayer WordPress work very good in my website.
Your concert in Indonesia looks good but I’m having trouble getting the full video to load. You might want to have a look at your hosting and make sure they are set up for the bandwidth and demands of video.
(related to Gabe’s post above)
When using the plugin, I noticed that the function ‘fp_media_send_to_editor’ is totally interfering with adding Media types from the Media Library add buttons.
Adding images and other types specifically work, but when adding a PDF and hitting Insert into Post, it renders nothing.
Narrowed it down to this specific function in backend.php.
I had been using the previous version, but upgraded to 1.1 hoping that it would be a fix, but this is an issue that continues to exist.
Can you look into it and see if you can see a different call or recommend one that I can use? I have no problem editing the PHP and have safeguards in place to prevent updates to edited plugins – unless done manually.
Hi Micheal & everybody
the conflict you’re describing will be fixed in the next release, coming out next week.
Thanks for reporting it,
Is there a way to use the “Flowplayer for WordPress” plugin and have the video autoplay?
What is the code for that?
autoplay with our plugin is very simple to use, just add autoplay=true into the shortcode.
Please check which plugin you’re using, our plugin is ‘FV WordPress Flowplayer’, not ‘Flowplayer for WordPress’.
Please can you help? I posted my question to Feedburner Help but never got replies/suggestions.
I’m using Flowplayer video player in a WordPress site – and Feedburner for email subscription service. Please can you tell me how I can add the rel=”enclosure” code so that Feedburner will display the video (and link to it) in the email?
The Flowplayer code looks like this:
[flowplayer src='http://kaichido.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/09/kcd2min_energizer640_360.flv' width=640 height=360
I don’t know where to put the
I also include a text link to the video and I have SmartCast activated.
The feed email shows the splash page only – The splash isn’t a link to the video and there is a red X under the splash image.
Feedburner’s guide to SmartCast is here:
if I understood correctly you would like the video showed up in the email. I am afraid this is not possible.
The splash image appears there because the email client finds the full link to image which is included in the shortcode.
But the shortcode for flowplayer cannot be interpreted in the email, this can only work on your website.
What I can suggest is that you include an image into the email along with the link to a site where user can watch this video.
Found the problem. It is the version of Flowplayer that FV Flowplayer comes with. I got no problems when using version 3.1.5 of Flowplayer.
So probably all videos stopped working when the latest FV Flowplayer came out.
That next release can’t come out next week, it has to come out today or tomorrow. This is production software.
Thanks for the tip. Zdenka please look into this right away. If there’s some kind of issue with the version of Flowplayer we are including, let’s get this sorted conclusively with either using one of our archived versions or making sure that we don’t allow this sort of issue to happen again.
If Flowplayer is deliberately messing around with compatibility, then we should always be using a known good version.
In the meantime, anyone who is having issues can always downgrade to FV Flowplayer version 1.0.6 (known good version without branding).
My apologies for these issues.
I was getting the error mentioned here:
so I uncommented this line
require_once dirname( __FILE__ ) . ‘/../models/flowplayer-frontend.php’;
Everything seems to be working. Is there anything I should worry about?
if the autoplay is off by default, then just add autoplay=true in the first video shortcode. Otherwise you need to set autoplay=false for the other three videos.
the uncommented code should be fine. Thanks for trying this out.
hello, miabe you guys know what is the problem…same url one player works the other one no,(famous error 200) any idea ?
To fix your problem immediately, you can download older version of our plugin, and replace the file /flowplayer/flowplayer.min.js with older version of this file.
Thanks for reporting this problem,
Thank you Zdenka, for your quick reply.
this is what i found.
in the html text widget this is the code works for me:
[flowplayer src='http://www.yoursite.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2010/Video/CatBoat.01_1.flv' width=290 height=170splash='images/boatimage.jpg']
if I put my image and video outside the /videos folder create in the root, it won’t show up.
in the HTML of a single post, the video show up in if it is in a different location of your site, the image no.
So Conclusion, videos and images should alway been stored in yoursite.com/videos/ and your images in yoursite.com/videos/images.
I replaced the .js as you told me then put again the last version it seem to works now.
Thanks for your help, will look now about this black line around the player Grrrrr!! :)
I ve now a comercial version , I tried to replace the two swf they give me, but nothing any other file to change/replace ? (js,php,…)
if you want to use relative paths to your videos, they should be placed in the /videos/ directory. The same hold for images.
If you want to reference videos or images with the full path (http://…), you can place them whenever you want.
If you have a license key to the commercial version, you need to include this in the admin section in the wordpress.
Btw. the black border around the video is defined in the css/flowplayer.css on the 6th line.
Thanks for the replay Zdenka,
Yes I inserted the key.
The new licensed player is 3.2.5.the one in the FV comm folder is 3.1.5.If I do a replace, rename ,the player still show up with the watermark.The key work only with 3.2.5.But when I put the 3.2.5 it wont load .I assume there is some file (js or php)that call only the 3.1.5 ?
Basically i can t get load the licensed version 3.2.5.swf
when i look at the source code this is what i ve
the player will look for the 3.1.5 version,the license won t reconize the 3.1.5, and will work only with 3.2.5
thanks for your help.
ok, so here’s what you can do:
Upload your 3.2.5 version to /flowplayer/commercial/ directory.
Then open file /models/flowpayer.php, scroll down to locate the very last function, comment out lines 106-108 (that if .. else), leaving only the last ‘define’, and fill the correct name of your new flowplayer file, so you replace flowplayer.commercial-3.1.5.swf with your new filename flowplayer.3.2.5.swf or something like that. Save the file.
This way the the code certainly takes Flowplayer you specified, and it should work with the license key you entered.
Please let me know how this went.
Could we make this a little more automatic (on entering of a license key). Is there any particular reason that people need the absolute latest version?
Hello Guys, Thanks for your wonderful support and amazing scripts,really.
Zdenka!this was the php file I was looking for!…Now it is ok, it s load the version 3.2.5.
Problem is now(and before) when i insert the license key, the first 2 character are #$ and when i insert the complete key, after update the 2 first character disappear, so license ID won t be recognize.Maybe the text input do not accept those Character?
Thanks again guys really appreciate your effort in this support.
yes, we actually were stripping of all non alphanumerical characters from the licence key and color names.
I just fixed this bug, so you can download the 1.2.1 version of FV WordPress Flowplayer. If you like to keep what you already changed, just copy the function _set_conf (lines 68-79) from /models/flowplayer.php and paste it into your php file.
We will try to figure out the solution how to make the use of commercial version more user-friendly.
Thank you very much for letting us know about these issues.
