Easy and Quick

One word summation ... brilliant.

Unclear functionality and unclear refund policy
By , for WP 4.3.1

I wrote a complete post about that (in Italian) here: http://morello.tumblr.com/post/129787269976/fv-flowplayer-6-video-player-per-wordpress

I was searching for a video player for WordPress and before to buy the very expensive FV Flowplayer I wrote some e-mail to Foliovision (the team that programmed the video player). Mr. Alec treated me in a very rude way because, beeing VERY INTERESTED in the plugin and wishing to buy it (also if the pro version is very expensve) I wrote some e-mail asking all I needed to know to make an informed purchase.
His answers were disconcerting. So, dsconcerted, I asked if they have a refund policy and I received the following answer: "(...)to be honest I don't like your communication style. You are free to buy the plugin but in your particular case, there is a no refunds policy."
Baffled from that answer, I wrote that:

"So, to be completely sure to have understood your message:
1. I am interested in your plugin.
2. You don't like my communication style and...
3. ...because of my communication style I will not have right to a refund"

And here you are the following answer: "(...)You know the conditions of sale now. There will be no refund in your case under any circumstances."
In the last email Mr. Alec offended me a little bit more and we stopped our email conversation.

So, I can't know if the PRO plugin works, but I am sure that if a company can decide to not have a REFUND POLICY for customers that ask for information, I am not sure that this plugin is worth paying 75 EUR without have the possibility to be sure that the pro version works for my needs and without a fair, clear refund policy.

Check Template shows this:

It appears there are multiple jQuery libraries on your site, your videos might not be playing or may play with defects, please check.

Template checker has changed. Just open any of your videos on your site and see if you get a red warning message about JavaScript not working.

Terrible Experience
By , for WP 4.3

I not only purchased the product, I purchased the installation support. Over 20 emails over 2 weeks, and the product still does not work.

I've uninstalled it and moved on to a different product.

I would never recommend using this product.

Great plugin

You will be amazed, especially if you are looking for AWS/S3 integration.


Issue resolved. Thanks!
By , for WP 4.1.1

I just want to say the customer service is impeccable. Within 20 minutes of sending my support ticket in, I had a response. My problem was solved.

The quality of the videos are excellent. This is the only video player I want to go with.

Hey everyone, download or upgrade without hesitation. I will be looking to upgrade.

Thank you Martin!

Kind regards,

Works like a charm

It was a nightmare to find reliable, nice looking and feature reach video player. I struggled with many players for 3 years.

Really FV Flowplayer saved my life 2 times:

1. With free version, which gave me option to play videos from secure Amazon S3 bucket (only option for payed membership sites).

2. With quality switching in premium version.

This is the MUST HAVE plugin for content marketers.

Works with a premium WP theme it wasn't suppposed to work with
By , for WP 4.0

I've always used Flowplayer with my WordPress themes, even the ones I made from scratch. When I purchased my first premium theme, it warned me that its video capacity was limited to YouTube and Vimeo only. But I didn't let that didn't scare me...until I found that I couldn't get the regular Flowplayer, the WP Flowplayer, or the built-in WP video player to work on computers, tablets, and smartphones. But with the help of some shortcoding and a WEBM video converter, the FV WordPress Flowplayer plugin has saved my donkey!

Easy & Quick !
By , for WP 3.9

Yes, its true. Admin friendly ( :D ) and nice, "short" shortcode structure. here is an example :

[fvplayer src="http://your-lovely-site-is-here.com/videos/your-videoname.mp4" splash="http://site.com/videos/your-video-poster.jpg­­" width="640" height="360"]

See ? This is how do you take an easy and quick generated shortcode without creepy bunch of moduls.

Thanks guys, this plugin ROCKS !
