Here is a branded version of Flowplayer. Almost all of the following features are available only in commercial versions of Flowplayer such as a custom logo, a custom play button and a configurable “right-click” context menu. The above player has all of the commercial features enabled. Remember to click the player with your right mouse button.
Customization of the logo plugin is the main reason for buying the
commercial versions of Flowplayer (which gives us the ability to work
on this project full- time). In the free version only the
fullscreenOnly setting can be changed. Here are all of the logo's
available properties along with their default values:
You can also specify all display properties for the logo as with any other plugin.
Here we have a customized logo. Notice that there is no Flowplayer branding displayed anywhere. The right-click menu is empty i.e. only unremovable Flash entries are shown.
Here is the default configuration in the free version. There are three entries in the menu as follows:
2 Menu separators. These are marked with a simple string: "-".
3 Labels. These just to display information and nothing happens if a user clicks on one.
Context menu example
Here we have a customized context menu with two entries:
The play button is shown on top of other elements when the player is in a paused or stopped state; while the video is being downloaded this button becomes a rotating "progress indicator". The play button is always shown in the centre of the video screen, so if the video screen is moved the play button moves with it. This behaviour cannot be altered. The size of the play button is relative to the size of the video screen, so if the video screen is resized the play button is resized also. You can see this behaviour by switching the player to fullscreen mode - observe that the play button becomes much bigger. You can alter this behaviour by specifying a fixed size for the button.
You can customize the size and behaviour of the play button in the following way:
You can hide the play/buffering indicator completely by setting its
0 as follows:
