In this demo, we want to make simple links (A href tags) that will play a
video file in Flowplayer. While you can achieve this functionality using the
playlist plugin, this implementation is much simpler and does not depend on
jQuery or the playlist plugin itself.
The drawback compared to using playlist plugin is that those links are not
tied to the player in any way. They simply start a movie clip from the
beginning each time they are clicked. They have no states such as loading,
playing or paused.
