Hi, are there any plans to support volumn control?

Thanks

marcfolio

No. Sorry.

I hope you will reconsider it because it is useful to have, all players (major and not) have this feature. Controlling the volume via the system or speakers is an argument but also there are cases where either you don’t have instance access to speakers (because they might not be close to you when you sit in front of your computer) and it’s very convenient to have to bring on the volume panel from windows or have to add the volume to tray icon, on a mac it is much easier of course having the volume control on the keyboard (there are keyboards that support this for windows too) but not everyone have mac or keyboards with volume control etc.

Personally I love the simplicity of the player that’s why I chose to use it on my project but the arguments I have above are arguments few people told me and made me consider finding a player that support’s volume control (although that I like your player the most), if I knew AS/flash I would try it myself and not ask about it :P

Thanks!

Hi,

I been trying to solve a problem for 3 hours and im about to go loco.

This happens with some of the videos i tryied, others work perfect.

Asked some friends to take a look but they couldent even see what i was talking about so I added a small screenshot under the video. Thats how it looks on my computer using firefox, safari, opera etc..

Example: http://www.lcflaw.com/yt/video02.html

Have you seen this problem before? what could it be.

:/

Ah. I think I know what’s happening. I discovered this bug in youtube’s chrome less player just the other day. Didn’t realize it affected this player. I’ll get on solving the issue. Meanwhile shoot me a private message through my profile and I can send you the updated files as soon as I have them later this morning.

Just made a fix. It should be available for download soon. If you need the file sooner contact me through my profile and I’ll email it to you. Thanks.

Hi Marco,

When I set wmode to transparent, the video is playing but the player doesn’t show at all. I know the video is playing because of the sound of the video.

Only happens in IE.

I need to set wmode to transparent because there is a div with fixed position in my page.

Here is the code I use:
         <object id="flash_player" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="640" height="360"><!-- Flash + Internet Explorer, Safari, Opera -->
    <param name="movie" value="yt_player.swf" />
        <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" />
        <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />       
        <param name="flashvars" value="v=mov/lamb1.mp4" />
        <!--[if !IE]>-->
        <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" data="yt_player.swf" width="640" height="360"><!-- Flash + Firefox, other -->
            <param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" />
                <param name="flashvars" value="v=mov/lamb1.mp4" />
                <!-- for non flash devices use the HTML5 video tag -->

        </object>
        <!--<![endif]-->
</object>

Regards, Alex

Do you have slink I can preview?

Sure :)

http://www.autohd.fr/A2/ click on the big picture, you’ll hear the sound as the video is running.

It calls the page http://www.autohd.fr/A2/ajax.html (as you can see, the page is blank).

So it works in Chrome/Safari…, not in IE.

Thx, Alex

Love the work. I have just a quick question to see if it would benefit me to purchase.

I am using this WP theme http://themeforest.net/item/galeria-single-page-wordpress-portfolio/105848

I can add a Youtube video to a lightbox page by adding http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BO3N6VdYCjY to the page, and it opens the YouTube video in the lightbox and plays.

If I purchase this, how would I change it to call your skin instead of the youtube skin? I am displaying the video in lightbox.

Will this work on IPad, IPhone etc… as well

I appreciate your time, and any help you can provide.

marcfolio

It could be done, but it wouldn’t be as simple as inserting just one line. I ame working on creating a wordpress plugin that would make it a one line. It’s in development and won’t be ready for at least another month. Bookmark me or follow me and you’ll be one of the first to know when it comes out.

any plans for a wordpress version & html5 support? This plugin seems to legitimately force HD videos to play off youtube. It’s good, but would be excellent if a wordpress version was released.

Any news on the wordpress plugin? Cheers

Is it possible to use this player with flash player 9?

marcfolio

Yes. It could be published to FP9.

Default-user

Great – can it play several videos sequentially without stopping?

Just bought the player but none of the included pages seem to work out of the box, they just show the player loading. I just need it to play an flv on my computer, could you provide a working embed code?

Dan

You probably need to visit the Flash settings on the Global Security Panel to allow the file to work on your computer. To modify the security settings: Go to the Setting Manager: http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager04.html Click on the “Edit Locations” menu and a drop down menu will appear. Click “Add Location” Click “Browse for folder” to find the folder that holds the video player. Select the folder and click OK.

I think that will fixe your problem.

Default-user

I’m afraid that’s not working, i’ve tried uploading the FLV and putting the flash file on a web page linking to that FLV and it’s not pulling the movie through either. Could you send me a working embed code for an FLV to test please? Does the player require youtube to play a standard video file? Just to note I’m using flash player 9 as confirmed on the comment above.

Thanks

Dan

marcfolio

The most common error for this is not linking to the video file or not passing the correct file path to the file. Do you have a dev url I can inspect?

As for the embed code you just need to make sure that the flashvar “v” is set correctly i.e. “v=non_youtube/cyclo.flv”.

Working on a playlist system – but when the second video plays, you can not pause or play. Is this an issue only I am having? Link: http://gen-y.fm/ondemand Select numerous files and click create playlist and you will see what I am talking about.
