jQuery Loop Flowplayer Clip

By Sam Deering

I’ve been doing a bit of Flowplayer stuff at the moment and thought I would document some code snippets. This snippet uses some jQuery to loop the play for a movie using flowplayer.

$f("playerContainer", "/path/to/flowplayer.swf", {
  playlist: [
    "first.flv",
    {
      url: "last.flv",
      onBeforeFinish: function (clip) {
        this.play(clip);
        return false;
      }
    }
  ]
});

If your seeing errors, try these to prevent looping errors depending on your flow player configurations.

onBeforeFinish: function (clip) {
    this.replay();
    return false;
}

onBeforeFinish: function (clip) {
  this.play(1); // hardcoded > 0
  return false;
}
