There are a few options you can set with the player:
type – either “playlist” (default) or “single”
1. “playlist” will show thumbnails of all files in the playlist, and show the video in a popup window
2. “single” shows a single video player, with all files in the playlist as a set of scrollable thumbnails below the video
width – the width of the video player in single mode, 640px by default
height – the height of the player in single mode, 480px by default
autoplay – either “true” (default) or “false”, sets if videos start playing once they are loaded
