FLV Gallery

Add a gallery of FLV videos to a post.

  1. Upload the entire flv-gallery folder to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory.
  2. Activate the plugin through the 'Plugins' menu in WordPress.

The control panel of FLV Gallery is in 'Settings > FLV Gallery', where you can set the following:

  1. Width of Parent Container (default = 580): This is the number of pixels you have to play with, typically the width of the div that the thumbnail gallery will live in. The plugin uses this total width along with the thumbnail widths to optimize the layout of the thumbnails.

  2. Thumbnail size (default = 125 x 125): The dimensions that you will make the thumbnails. The gallery will layout best if you upload thumbnails of the same size.

  3. Modal Player Background Color (default = "#fff): This is the CSS background color for the modal dialog window that the video will play in.

  4. Modal Player Border Style (default = "3px solid #75001b"): This is the CSS style for the border of the modal dialog window. The overall size of the dialog is based on the video size.

To add videos to your post/page, insert a line like the following for each video:

NOTE: Use the HTML tab, not VISUAL from the WordPress Post editor.

[flvgallery video="/path/to/videos/video1.flv" title="Title for Video 1" caption="Optional Caption" thumbnail="/path/to/thumbnails/thumbnail1.jpg" url="" url_text=" url_icon="" width="400" height="225"]

  • required parameters:

    • video: full path to the video file
    • title: the tile for the video
    • thumbnail: full path to the thumbnail
    • width: width of the video
    • height: height of the video
  • optional parameters:

    • caption: an optional caption to go under the thumbnail
    • url: if you want people to click over to a URL from the gallery page, e.g. to a e-commerce page selling a product
    • url_text: if using a url, the text for the link (e.g. "buy now")
    • url_icon: instead of using text for the link, use an icon (e.g. "/path/to/icons/buy.png")
    • streamer: if your video is hosted on an RTMP streaming server you can enter the base URL of that server (e.g. "rtmp://cp99999.edgefcs.net/ondemand")
