WP JW Player is customizable flash player with embed function, rss feeds which allows you to publish video and text content at the same time.
Add JW Player to a post/page by inserting [wp-jw-player src=”http://www.example.com/video.flv”] into the post/page.
You can even add a Youtube video with custom width and height like this [wp-jw-player src=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsGmZO4N0g0″ width=”400″ height=”350″].
If you want to allow your visitors to embed the player on their websites and blog you can simply do that by adding [wp-jw-player src=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsGmZO4N0g0″ width=”400″ height=”350″ embed=”true”].
What about fetching rss feeds related to a certain keyword [wp-jw-player src=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsGmZO4N0g0″ width=”400″ height=”350″ rsstag=”JW Player”].
When you use the
rsstag parameter, WP JW Player will use the default feed source defined in the settings to fetch the feeds. By default, the plugin uses Google News as a feed source,
but you can change that to any source you like. You should be careful to use %keyword as the query keyword when you defined the default source. %keyword will be replaced by the
rsstag parameter later on.
Another way to do it is to include an absolute rss feed source like this [wp-jw-player src=”http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WsGmZO4N0g0″ feed=”http://www.tubepress.net/feed”].
All the parameter can have default values to be used when you omit them. Defaults can be defined in ‘Settings->WP JW Player’.
The plugin is simple to install:
- Upload ‘wp-jw-player’ directory to your ‘/wp-content/plugins’ directory
- Go to the plugin management page and enable the plugin
- Configure the plugin from ‘Settings->WP JW Player’
