Flowplayer: Clicking on the player forces is to reload.
 

Hey everyone,

I've got this damn annoying bug (or wrong setting) that makes the player reload whenever it's clicked. It's set to play when you click, so when you click it, it reloads. The circle begins....

The reloading only happens in Firefox. In Safari (and I assume Chrome), the video opens in its own window. Not ideal, but it still plays.

Here's the code for the player: (I can't share the link unfortunately, NDAs etc etc.)

flashembed("player", "/flowplayer.commercial-3.0.7.swf", { config: { key: '#@xxxxxx',
clip: { autoPlay: false, autoBuffering: true, url: "http://myvid.com/url.mp4", wmode: 'opaque' } } });

This site is full of complete geniuses, I hope one of you can help me out!

The fact that this works as expected in Firefox 3.6 for Windows and Firefox 3.5.7 for Linux suggests its a Mac/Firefox issue.

Try comparing the generated output between different versions using Firebug and see if you can spot anything


I just had the exact same issue. I had Flowplayer in a content slider and the slider was cloning the player and the script. I fixed the problem by changing the video link to have a class of "player," instead of a unique ID, then changing the javascript call to Flowplayer to:

<script>flowplayer("a.player", "flowplayer-3.1.5.swf");</script>

and then moving the script out of the slider, so that the script itself wasn't cloned. I reinserted it just before the closing tag, but it could go anywhere.


Has this issue been resolved? I'm having the exact same problem here, and cannot seem to get a resolution. If it is purely a browser-specific bug, has anyone come up with a workaround?

[FlowPlayer] Changing default "Play" image
[FlowPlayer] Changing default "Play" image Hello people, I am trying to change the default "Play" image in FlowPlayer which comes up when the player loads and is ready to play the clip. Any clues or resources? Any help will be highly appreciated. The most direct way would be to find the image in the source, I think it is in a .fla used as a library the last time I looked, replace it and recompile flowplayer.core yourself. This page describes how to get your development environment configured: http://flowplayer.org/documentation/developer/development-environment.html Another way would be to hide the play plugin and replace it with your own. So something like this with onFinish, you'll need to find all the other callbacks you need as well, like load or start, pause, etc. onFinish: function(){ this.getPlugin("play").hide

Flowplayer flash component plays sound but not video.
Flowplayer flash component plays sound but not video. Okay, I've been researching this all day and it's driving me nuts. The flow player will play the audio of a *.flv, but doesn't play the video and I've no idea why. The initial example page using the default flowplayer flv url works fine. When I change the url to my godaddy site, it doesn't work. I've searched Stackoverflow, googled, and, of course, looked in the forums at the Flowplayer website. I found some articles talking about the flash file missing it's meta data and that throwing the flowplayer off. I'm using Movavi Video Suite 8.... I have the same issue with the LongTailVideo player. Here is the html for my test page: <!-- include flowplayer JavaScript file that does Flash embedding and provides the Flowplayer API. --> <script type="text/javascript" src="flowplayer-3.1.4.min.js"><
how to override flowplayer onError message
how to override flowplayer onError message I have the following js. If the flv url doesn't exist the onError function is called which is great. However currently it displays the alert and then proceeds to display an unfriendly error message. How can i override this message with something more user friendly. $f(videoid, "/swf/flowplayer-3.1.5.swf", { playlist: list1, wmode: 'opaque', plugins: { gatracker: { url: "/swf/flowplayer.analytics-3.1.5.swf", trackingMode: "Bridge", debug: false } }, onError: function(err) { alert('Error Code: ' + err); } }); Not really sure what you had in mind but you could do something like this. Place this where you want your error message to show <div id="errorbox"></div> Paste this in your CSS #errorbox{ color: #D8000C; border: 2px
