Basic Configuration

Configuring Flowplayer to auto-buffer video

standalone demo

Flowplayer can be configured to stop playback at the first frame and start buffering the video easily.

The player container

Configuration can be achieved using unobtrusive javascript, thereby keeping the HTML absolutely minimal.

<!-- player container-->
<a href="http://stream.flowplayer.org/flowplayer-700.flv" class="player"
style="display:block;width:425px;height:300px;margin:10px auto"
id="player">
</a>

HTML

Javascript code

The following shows the minimal configuration required to set up Flowplayer for auto-buffering. To get a better handle on how configuration works, you can take a peek at our detailed configuration documentation.

flowplayer("player", "http://releases.flowplayer.org/swf/flowplayer-3.2.18.swf", {
clip: {
// these two configuration variables does the trick
autoPlay: false,
autoBuffering: true // <- do not place a comma here
}
});

JavaScript

We used two clip properties here.
