Flowplayer in short

Flowplayer is an Open Source video player for your website.

For site owners, developers, hobbyists, businesses and programmers.


Flowplayer design philosophy keeps the player out of the way. The video is the star of the show.

  • Skinnable

    Tweak the design until it's your own. Change colors, use transparency, add images and so on.

  • Own it

    Add your own logo and people will never know it's Flowplayer. Custom branding is available with a commercial license.

  • Splash, No Flash

    Speed up your page loads and make your pages smoother with a splash image. Click the image and playback starts.


Streaming happens between the player and a server that is specialized for serving video. Flowplayer handles the whole stack with some extra spice.

  • Stunning HD quality. Uninterrupted.

    When internet connection is good a HD video is played and when the speed goes down a smaller and snappier version is used. This all happens behind the scenes while the video is playing. It's like magic.

  • Slow Motion

    Slow forward, slow backward, fast forward and fast backward. Ever seen this on the web before? Flowplayer does it.

  • Jump anywhere

    A core feature in streaming servers is the ability to jump to any part of the video at any time without waiting for the entire video to be loaded to the player.

  • All servers and networks

    Wowza, FMS, lighttpd, nginx, IIS, RTMP, CloudFront, … No matter where your video is, Flowplayer plays it.


The essential player features done right.

  • Grow Exponentially

    You have a great video. Good. People will like it and they will share it. Their friends will also share it. Intuitive sharing buttons make this an easy reality.

  • New kind of analytics

    How many views? For how long was it watched? How about virally embedded players? Where are they? How much in Facebook? All this with Google Analytics.
