This is how you can capture specific error codes in Flowplayer using JavaScript and display custom error messages to the user. Include the code in the js player object.

onError: function(e)
{
    switch(e)
    {
        case 300:
            status.html("Offline: Stream configuration error (code:"+e+").");
            break;
        default:
            status.html("Offline: Live stream not active (code:"+e+").");
            break;
    }
