wordTube FlowPlayer


You don’t like the JW FLV Media Player or want to play MP4 movies? Okay, here is an alternate player: the FlowPlayer. And the very best: This Plugin integrates with the popular wordTube plugin. You can still manage your videos using wordTube and then use the FlowPlayer with an alternate shortcode to play a video (playlists coming soon).

There is an administration page to style the FlowPlayer to your needs (free version and commercial version supported!).

Example shortcode: [flowplayer id=1 width=480 height=320] or simply [flowplayer id=1]

You can also use the flowplayer in your theme, a post or your sidebar with a PHP tag (install plugin exec-php!):

 * Usage: flowplayer( $id, $width = 0, $height = 0, $return = false )
 * Params:
 * id = wordTube video id (required)
 * width = width of video (0 = use defaults, integer = use own width)
 * height = height of video (0 = use defaults, integer = use own height)
 * return = output html code or return it (true = return html, false = echo html)

// Example 1: Use default with and height setting, just display a video
flowplayer( 43 );

// Example 2: Use own width and height
flowplayer( 43, 320, 200 );

// Example 3: Get html code into variable to do something with the code...
$playerhtml = flowplayer( 43, 0, 0, true );


Important: wordTube is required to use this plugin. Get it here:


  • Here you see an example ( - a german motorcycle video magazin)
  • This is a part of the administration page


Just install the plugin and activate it. Then use the new shortcode [flowplayer id=1] instead of the [MEDIA=1] shortcode of wordTube and your wordTube video will be played with FlowPlayer.

You can also use the shortcode [flowplayer id=1 width=480 height=320] if you do not want to use the dimensions you set in the database of wordTube and display the FlowPlayer with alternative dimensions.



Not supported yet, coming soon. We’re still beta.

Is the statistic counter increased?

Yes, if you play a video with the flowplayer, the play counter of the video is increased in wordTube database table.

Can I use the plugin without wordTube?

No, wordTube by Alex Rabe is required!

Can I configure and style the FlowPlayer with this plugin?

Yes, have a look at the administration page.

Is the FlowPlayer included when I download this plugin?

Yes, the latest FlowPlayer is included. Be sure to check the LICENSE and the README located in /wp-content/plugins/wordtube-flowplayer/flowplayer(_commercial) – further informations you get here:
