Many still has not realized how easy it is to play videos in the site. The misconception about the difficulties in owning a web player and play videos still remains. However, with the arrival of flash players, owning and customizing a player and branding the videos have become a cake walk. Embedding a player to a website with ready to use scripts is a perfect ecstasy. Browse for Flash player and get to see lumps of player such as http://www.hdflvplayer.net/ . These are quick to install and easy to configure.

Choose a flash player with generic features such as:

  • HTML5 Support- Being in Apple era, it’s mandatory to make the player compatible in iPhone/iPad. An FLV player with HTML5 support will bring the player available on iPhone/iPad

  • H.264/MPEG-4 format - High definition is the expression and watching videos in HD format is the superior choice.

  • Support various video formats such as mp4, mov, flv, m4v

  • FFMPEG – Convert any format videos to FLV while uploading via admin

  • Multiple Skins- Choose a skin suitable for your website

  • Social Icons- Optimize the most from social networking. A video with Facebook like &share/ tweet will circulate in the web more effectively and quickly. This helps to make your videos viral

  • Embedding- Display your Flash Player in another website with an embed code

My motive with this article is to provide reliable information on use and effect of adding flash players on website and hope I have achieved it.
