Is there some kind of free software out there where I can take a source video file, and combine it with a flash video player, say flowplayer. I have a website I am going to setup for a friend, and I am having trouble playing flv files. I use eyeos, and its flash video player is still a little shaky. I wold like to have the video combined into ONE swf file with the player, so that the user just clicks it, and plays. I already have videos that are just swf files, but there is no video controls. Please, any suggestions will help.
Hi jkilgo, welcome to SitePoint!
I think you have answered your own question. I was going to suggest Flowplayer. That’s a nice solution. Is there a reason you are asking for something else? Did you have a problem with flowplayer?
Flash video player plays FLV videos. I suggest you convert your SWF video to FLV and then embed it to flowplayer.
I am new to flash, I am really just an end user, but I need to use it for videos. It turns out, that when migrating to the server webhost, the file paths got conflicted. I re-uploaded a video, and it seemed to work. However, if there is any way i can combine a video with a player in one swf file, it would be much appreciated.
