Needed to finish up a web project for my client. I was asked to embed videos with various format types including “wmv”, “mov”, “swf”, ‘flv”, “f4v” and etc. And some requirements are to show play controller, to auto-start. wmv and swf can be easily done by coping and pasting some code to embed the video files.
The best thing is that it is very easy to be used and customized by going over its documentation. Only a few lines of code are required to get the job done.
The online documentation is at
I downloaded it and uploaded it to my own server. It can be found at:
Some potential issues:
I did go through some little issues with this library. The way to use it is that it requires a div id called “container” to trigger the video player defined in the library file, namely “jwplayer.js”. However, I have the div id “container” defined for my own web page already. And if that happens, it will generate the conflict so that page content may not be properly read by browser. The way to solve the problem is to change the library file to change all ”container” to “jwcontainer”. (it can be any other names.)
