Alternative embed methods

Using the object tag with the commercial player

standalone demo

The commercial version of Flowplayer can be embedded on the page using all alternate embedding methods. You can see the OBJECT tag in action in the directly embedded player above.


<div class="player">
<object id="flowplayer" width="480" height="324" bgcolor="#000000"
<!-- movie param is required for IE -->
<param name="movie"
value="" />
<!-- set to true if you want your users to be able to enter fullscreen mode -->
<param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" />
<!-- Flowplayer configuration -->
<param name="flashvars" value='config={
"logo":{"url":"","fullscreenOnly":false}}' />


Important: Some versions of Internet Explorer 9 throw an error when encountering a Flash object in IE9 mode directly in the page source - as opposed to the object being generated by a script, for instance by the Flowplayer API. You can avoid this by adding the following as first meta tag in the HEAD section of your page:

<meta http-equiv="X-UA-Compatible" content="IE=EmulateIE8" />

BrowserMatch MSIE best-standards-support
Header set X-UA-Compatible IE=8 env=best-standards-support
