    Updated to the latest version, which fixed the playback issue, but has introduced a new one.

    This is on a site with a good amount of other plug-ins, but it is the only site to show this error:

    Fatal error: Class 'flowplayer_frontend' not found in /home/******/public_html/wp-content/plugins/fv-wordpress-flowplayer/controller/shortcodes.php on line 33

    Hi Spidermann,

    We've fixed this issue as well. We did a lot of improvements last month:

    • adding video upload
    • redirects after the video
    • shortcode API compliance

    WordPress 3.0 just happened to come out at the same time. A perfect storm, if you will. It took some time to reconcile all of the improvements and WordPress 3.0 to get things back to FV reliability. The older versions (easily downloadable at WordPress.org) did continue to work throughout though (without the new features).

    We will be more careful with experimental versions going forward (we don't like to keep multiple versions open as it slows down development). We'll introduce one feature at a time.

    Thanks for your help. As you know it's faster to submit bug reports and feature requests at our FV WordPress Flowplayer page.

    If anyone is still occasionally having trouble with this issue, you might want to update one line in the shortcodes.php file.

    I have WordPress 3.0.3 and FV Flowplayer 1.2.2 on two sites.
    On one site the Flowplayer works successfully. On the other, it can
    not be activated because of this error message:

    fatal error: Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_STRING, expecting T_OLD_FUNCTION or T_FUNCTION or T_VAR or '}' in /home/content/26/6408726/html/wp-content/plugins/fv-wordpress-flowplayer/models/flowplayer.php on line 4

    The installation on the first site was two weeks ago. The second one with the error was yesterday. Can you advise?

    Hi rstaufer,

    this sounds exactly like our FAQ #1, please check the PHP version on your server.

    My web host, GoDaddy, is running php 4.x! I asked them to upgrade.
