I'm not a programmer, just a humble webmaster and benefitting from the work of the great plugin developers out there.
I have just put a video on our company's blog in FLV format using a freeopen source program called Flowplayer (http://flowplayer.org/documentation/installation/index.html).
I thought this would be great as a plugin for other people who host their own FLV videos.
If anybody knows of an existing alternative that is just as good then I'd be happy to hear about it and try it out.
Thanks very much.
PS. To see it in action (very basic code though) you can look at my post here: http://www.ideal-country-property.com/blog/2010/03/heartfm-lee-jay-david-laver/
