gives you

As you can see, the playlist is stored in the same filesystem location as the music files (see sample playlist here).

The flashvars set all the tweakable aspects – color, positioning ect. You can view all available flashvars here on Jeroen Wijering’s site, and there is also a setup wizard where you can throw in various combinations and see how the code turns out

Playing a video – with youtube-like recommendations!


<embed

width="300"
height="220"
allowscriptaccess="always"
allowfullscreen="true"
flashvars="height=220&width=300
&file=http://www.srichinmoy.tv/c_/video/tv/260/260-1-2.mp4
&showicons=false&image=http://www.srichinmoy.tv/images/tv/260-1.jpg
&displayheight=200&searchbar=false
&recommendations=http://www.srichinmoy.tv/c_/player/recommendations/rec-lifevoices.xml"
/>

gives

When the video is finished, a list of recommended videos are displayed. Just like the playlists above, the recommendations are also generated from an xml file (see sample).

Note:

  • The front preview image and the recommendation images already exist on the site. The Flash Player allows them to be jpgs instead of having to convert to mp4
  • Again, the colour of the controlbar at the bottom can be modified by playing with the flashvars
  • The controlbar is on the bottom because we set the displayheight 20px less than the height. If they are the same there is a nicer effect where the controlbar is inline, but then it gets in the way of the recommendations if you want to include them

Custom playlist from different albums

allowscriptaccess="always"
allowfullscreen="true"
flashvars="height=200&width=300&displayheight=0&showstop=true
&showicons=false&repeat=list&backcolor=0xCCCCFF
&frontcolor=0x000066&lightcolor=0x3333FF&screencolor=0x6666FF&thumbsinplaylist=true
&file=http://www.radiosrichinmoy.org/c_/audio/custom_playlists/playlist1.xml"

gives you

Here is the link to this playlist – note how we now have a ‘creator’ and ‘album’ tag added. We have also switched the thumbsinplaylist flashvar to true to include creator

Custom TV playlist


<embed

width="300" height="400"
allowscriptaccess="always"
allowfullscreen="true"
flashvars="height=400&width=300&displayheight=200&showstop=true
&showicons=true&repeat=list&backcolor=0xCCCCFF
&frontcolor=0x000066&lightcolor=0x3333FF&screencolor=0x6666FF&thumbsinplaylist=true
&file=http://www.srichinmoy.tv/c_/custom_playlists/playlist1.xml"

gives you

Here is the link to this playlist – the ‘image tag allows images to be displayed in listing, I just used images already on site.

Thanks to Jeroen Wijering for creating such a great player
