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!):
<?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: https://wordpress.org/extend/plugins/wordtube/
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.
