At long last IT IS HERE…FlowPlayer 5 for wordpress, This plugin comes from the parent company of Flowplayer 5. The HTML5 software was initially released in October, 2012. For the unintiated, HTML5 is a type of new video player format used on ipads/iphones. You see, Steve jobs wanted his inventions to start using a new player technology and move away from Adobe Flash video players. There are a lot of companies that are releaseing HTML5 video players. However there are only five companies trying to be the first HTML5 player for wordpress. In my reseach over the last several months to get HTML5 on FritzImages, I have looked at and tested all the players and companies and everyone has a different angle
Suffice to say, that if you want a free, elegant solution Flowplayer5 has you covered. This plugin for WP was released only five days ago ! My download was number 101. These past few days, I have put it thru the tests, and it has a few quirks but a quick call into the developer and we’ll begin to iron them out tommorrow.
First and foremost Flowplayer 5 allows you to embedd a H.256 video into your web post. They have developed a very unique way of prompting you to add your videos. Very unique and I like it a lot. Some features include adding your own logo (must buy commecial icense $95), add a splash screen, resize, autostart,Google Analaytics, and three skins to choose from.
Your viewers can then use their ipads to see your content in retenia quality and in an improved color space. FlowPlayer5 works on your ipad as advertised, the video your watching does not drop back to apple quicktime. The features of FlowPlayer5 are enabled by pressing the ? key.
