If you want to have access to more advanced functions, you'll want to go with our FV Player Pro. This version contains all the features of the free version, plus many more.
Besides removing our branding, FV Player Pro will allow you to use YouTube and Vimeo videos, use Amazon CloudFront and other CDNs. It will also add many other features, such as DRM Text, custom video ads, interactive transcript, and ExoClick Ads.
The following features are provided in FV Player Pro. These features are not in the free version.
Autoplay just once: Makes sure each video autoplays only once for each visitor.
Custom start/end time: Enables you to show only a smaller portion of your video, by selecting where to begin playback and where to stop playback, within your video.
Interactive transcript: Uses an attached VTT file (usually subtitles) to generate a transcript in a box, below the video.
Scroll Autoplay: Automatically plays any video that comes into the browser viewport.
AB Loop: This function is used for continuous playback of a selected video section. As the name of the function suggests, you can select a part of a video, which will start to play in a continuous loop until you decide to stop it.
Pay-per-View: FV Player Pay-Per-View is an additional plugin, that works with FV Player and allows users to restrict their content until someone pays to watch it.
Custom Logo: You can upload the image file of your logo and choose a position in the drop-down list.
Import whole playlists: Import a whole playlist of videos from YouTube, instead of importing them one by one.
Video Ads: Configure multiple, clickable Video Ads, that can be played before (pre-roll) or after (post-roll) your videos.
Chapters: Supports the rendering of chapter markers. This feature is particularly useful for long form video, in case you want to segment it into discreet sections.
DRM Text: Used for watermarking your video content with website and user data, thus allowing you to prove you are the original content owner.
AB Loop: Used for continuous playback of a selected video section.
Vimeo Hosting: Integration of hosting service with use of own player with advanced features. FV Player Pro integrates seamlessly with Vimeo as it's the closest-to-perfect free video hosting available.
YouTube Hosting: Integration of hosting service with use of own player with advanced features.
Disable Video Captions: Normally the video title is parsed into the shortcode when saving the post. With this setting, it won't appear.
Quality Switching: Upload your videos in multiply qualities for best user experience with different bandwidth restrictions, and on different devices.
Encrypted HLS Stream: Videos can be encrypted by Amazon AWS. FV Player is able to decrypt them and only play them to your users. This adds another layer of security to your videos.
Amazon Cloudfront Support: CloudFront is a CDN. (content delivery network) If you want fastest possible delivery across the globe, you might consider using a CDN. Cloudfront provides easy, pay as you go pricing, while also offering a certain degree of download protection.
KeyCDN Support: Another CDN that works great with FV Player Pro.
BunnyCDN Support: BunnyCDN is an economically very attractive storage and distribution platform that offers global content delivery in a very simple and user-friendly package.
StackPath Support: Another CDN that works great with FV Player Pro.
