[Plugin: JW Player for WordPress – Flash & HTML5 Video Player] Blank space above all post embe (2 posts)

    Hello all I have been driving myself nuts trying to find the best method of adding HTML5 video with flash fallback on my site. So far all have had some minor issues. JW Player so far seems to be the best overall except for one small issue.

    Anytime I embed a video on a post there is some added space above where the video starts. It's like the embed drops one line down before showing the video. I don't know where this is coming from. When I ad the code to the template file manually like this:

    echo jwplayer_tag_callback('[jwplayer mediaid="1111"]');

    it displays properly it's only giving me trouble when using the embed code on a post page.

    Also it appears that it tries Flash first then falls back to HTML5 is there anyway to reverse that? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    In regards to the extra line showing up, I'm not sure there's much I can do. This seems to be a product of WordPress automatically adding <p> tags around the insert embed code. I have yet to find a good solution for this behavior.

    Defaulting to HTML5 mode can be turned on in the JW Player > Settings > Player Settings in the admin section of your site.

    Hope this helps.
