Splash image from any frame

How to use an arbitrary frame as the splash image.

standalone demo

You can set up a splash image based on a chosen video frame.

With pseudo-streaming you can tweak the splash screen using the clip's start property. The player will seek to this position and pause there showing the frame as a splash image. In this demo we seek to the position at 62 seconds.

First you set up the player to stop at the beginning with the following setup:

clip: {
autoPlay: false,
autoBuffering: true
}

JavaScript

Configuration

Here is the JavaScript configuration for above example:

flowplayer("player", "http://releases.flowplayer.org/swf/flowplayer-3.2.18.swf",  {
// this will enable pseudostreaming support
plugins: {
pseudo: {
url: "flowplayer.pseudostreaming-3.2.13.swf"
}
},
 
// clip properties
clip: {
 
// these two settings will make the first frame visible
autoPlay: false,
autoBuffering: true,
 
// locate a good looking first frame with the start parameter
start: 62,
 
// make this clip use pseudostreaming plugin with "provider" property
provider: 'pseudo',
 
// this is our video file. our server supports pseudostreaming
url: 'http://p.demo.flowplayer.netdna-cdn.com/vod/demo.flowplayer/Extremists.mp4'
}
});
