Help with FlowPlayer code

This code (below) works successfully inside <video> tags as a flash fallback solution.
Now that I have the Flowplayer installed, I’m wondering if this part of this line needs to be changed:


Can you please tell me what this (data="…) part of the line is for?

<object class="vjs-flash-fallback" width="640" height="264" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="">
<param name="movie" value="[var.base_url]//flowplayer/flowplayer-3.2.16.swf" />
<param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" />
<param name="flashvars" value='config={"playlist":["[var.base_url]/[var.thumb_file]", {"url": "[var.base_url]//uploads/[var.video_play]","autoPlay":false,"autoBuffering":true}]}' />
<!-- Image Fallback. Typically the same as the poster image. -->
<img src="[var.base_url]/[var.thumb_file]" width="640" height="264" alt="Poster Image" title="No video playback capabilities." />


I’ve had trouble working though off site url’s. It best if down load the code from flowplayer and load them onto your server.

Audio portion: Scroll to bottom of page and down load 3 files

Place them in root directory.(ex.) Flow-Player-Audio

Place this script in head

<script type=“text/javascript”

<script src=“”></script>

<!-- set up player container –>
<a id=“mb” style=“display:block;width:250px;height:30px;”
href=“ or mp4”></a>

<script type=“text/javascript”>
// install flowplayer into container
$f(“mb”, “”, {

// fullscreen button not needed here
plugins: {
    controls: {
        fullscreen: false,
        height: 30,
        width: 250,
        autoHide: false

clip: {
    autoPlay: false,
    // optional: when playback starts close the first audio playback
    onBeforeBegin: function() {



For video

down load

grab Download ZIP and Source code

place in swf file on server

script files

<!-- 1. jquery library –>
<script type=“text/javascript”

<!-- 2. flowplayer –>
<script type=“text/javascript” src=“js/flowplayer.js”></script>

<!-- 3. skin –>
<link rel=“stylesheet” type=“text/css” href=“skin/minimalist.css” />

then just add your video tags.

This looks like HTML5 code to me. Flash is the usual popular fallback option.
