JW Custom Player FLV & HTML5 Question (2 posts)

    I tried using this short code for a custom player I had made:

    [jwplayer type="sen" file="http://www.applebananacarrot.com/movies/ABCSENPromo_1.flv"
    image="http://www.applebananacarrot.com/movies/abcsenposter640" html5_file="http://youtu.be/dyayc_gRBYU"]

    I realised that it was always playing the html5 version.

    If I use

    [jwplayer file="http://www.applebananacarrot.com/movies/ABCSENPromo_1.flv"]

    then it plays the .flv file.

    I need the .flv file (which we are hosting) to be accessible to a lot of my users who are in schools where youtube us blocked. If youtube is blocked will the player autromatically then use the .flv file?

    If YouTube is blocked, the player won't fail over to the FLV.
