Flowplayer 3.2.8 release notes

March 9, 2012

We admit it. It's been a long time since the last Flowplayer update. However, we haven't been idle. We've been working on the next Flowplayer release. A brand new, completely rewritten Flowplayer for the HTML5 world + a few other (big!) things. In preparation for this, we've revamped our website. Apart from a new design, the entire website is static. All the dynamic portions are separated into JSON based services.

This release of Flowplayer is not a tiny one either. In addition to handsome new features, it packs the longest list of fixes ever.

  • Slowmotion and Fastplay

    Interactively control the video playback speed. Now supported also for Adobe FMS, see it in action here.

  • Adobe HTTP Streaming

    Random seeking to any part of the timeline at any time, support for H264 and VP6 codecs, Multi-bitrate streaming, among other things. There is a new HTTP streaming plugin with all this and more.

  • Hardware accelerated playback

    The player now takes advantage of the video hardware, lowering the CPU load. Here is a demo with HD video.

  • New multipurpose menu plugin

    There is a new menu plugin that is good for bitrate selection and, for example, things like for showing related videos.

  • Bitrate selection enhancements

    We have a new menu based approach for bitrate selection. We also have a new JavaScript bitrate selection plugin for those who prefer the flexibility it provides. In addition to these we have a new cool splash that is displayed when switching between HD and SD modes.

  • Improvements and bugfixes

    This update sees the longest list of improvements and fixes ever in a Flowplayer update.

Flowplayer 3.2.6 release notes

New plugin for viral sharing

We have a new streamlined plugin for viral video sharing. It's called Sharing and it provides a simple and easy user experience for sharing video links via email, embed codes and via Facebook and Twitter.

You can see the plugin in action here. There are four buttons that take the user to the destination right away without any additional steps: It's sharing with one click!

Selecting between HD and SD

For years you have been able to use our bandwidth detection plugin for selecting and switching between videos encoded in different bitrates. We have now enhanced this with buttons that are easy to setup and provide the users a simple way to switch between HD (high definition) and SD (standard definiton) video formats. You can see the buttons in action here.
