Many people think it's very difficult to realize playing videos on their own website, blog, forum or e-store, because it's difficult for them, who don't know any coding knowledge, to customize an own-branded web FLV player like YouTube player for web. So if they want to play videos on their own website, they have to compress their videos size to 10 mins or smaller and upload to YouTube, and then get the embed codes of the videos for embedding onto website. Although they know the drawbacks like the videos will belong to YouTube, the video quality will be lower, etc. In fact, it's not difficult to customize a skinning web FLV video player any more. Here, I will introduce a way to customize a skinning web flash video player with full-screen capability and playlist. At present, this way is the easiest one, which only needs a few mouse clicks. Below is the tutorial shows how to customize the web video player with a few mouse-clicks on Moyea Web Player. Step 1: Download Moyea Web Player and launch it on your PC (Moyea Web Player is an easy-to-use FLV player creator, with which, customizing skinning streaming FLV player and FLV player for website only needs a few mouse-clicks. And the created player can be easily edited via flashvars code). Step 2: Input flash videos you want to play on webpage into Moyea Web Player (If your videos are not flash videos, please convert them to). http://www.playerdiy.com/images/tutorial/customize-web-player/input-videos.jpg Step 3: Choose a player skin(here, I use the default one), and remove the embed code area. http://www.playerdiy.com/images/tutorial/customize-web-player/choose-skin.jpg http://www.playerdiy.com/images/tutorial/customize-web-player/remove-embed-code.jpg Check "Auto choose next" to make the player can player next video automatically http://www.playerdiy.com/images/tutorial/customize-web-player/choose-next-video.jpg Step 4: Click "Publish" button to generate a web flash video player and other related files (Note: if you want to get a separate playlist file, please check "Out File") Step 5: Upload all the published files except the index.html file, to the same folder of your web server Step 6: Embed the generated player onto your webpage with the embed code below (you can get it on the generated index.html file): <script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>
Player will show here
<script type="text/javascript"> var so = new SWFObject('mwplayer.swf','player','500','450','9'); so.addParam('wmode','opaque'); so.addParam('quality','high'); so.addParam('allowfullscreen','true'); so.addParam('allowscriptaccess','always'); so.write("flashcontent"); </script> Note: 1. No tag outside the embed code. 2. mwplayer.swf is the actual flash video player. If it resides in another directory, then point to it with a relative path (e.g. /player/mwplayer.swf) or an absolute path (e.g. http://www.yourdomain.com/player/mwplayer.swf ). For example: <script type="text/javascript" src="http://www.yourdomain.com/players/swfobject.js"></script>
Player will show here
<script type="text/javascript"> var so = new SWFObject('http://www.yourdomain.com/players/mwplayer.swf','player','500','450','9'); so.addParam('wmode','opaque'); so.addParam('quality','high'); so.addParam('allowfullscreen','true'); so.addParam('allowscriptaccess','always'); so.write("flashcontent"); </script> 3. '500','450' is the width and the height of the player, you could change them to change the player size. Step 7: The FLV player will appear on your website.
