The freeform block has the ability to add a video player, supported from versions 5.5 and newer.  Most useful when few videos are to be added manually in different places in the content. To add a playlist of videos or set of videos in one place, use the downloadable video player in filter block instead. Supports .flv type video.

  1. Point the cursor to where the Video player is to  be added.
  2. Click the Flowplayer icon in the WYSIWYG tool.
  3. Configure video:
    1. Select a video of .flv type from the file pile, using the File Picker. Click ok on File picker after selection.
    2. Select a static/preview image for video (optional). The file pickers allows to select thumbnail and other available sizes for the image. Click ok on file Picker.
    3. Select one of the flowplayer template options: Modern (default), Air, Tube.
    4. Scrubber Controls can be checked or unchecked, to display stop, progress bar or full screen options in the video.
  4. Configure clip options:
    1. Select scaling to fill space, to fit window or to fill half-size. This controls what the image preview looks like and the video.
    2. Configure the width and height of the video, these are required fields.
    3. Allow autoplay if the video should start on page load, leave unchecked to allow user to open video when needed.
    4. Configure fade-in and fade-out speeds, the default being Medium.
