Manage Videos

HD FLV Player accepts both streaming and normal way of playing videos. By default it is set to None where you can add videos through following methods: Upload, Direct URL, Youtube URL and FFMPEG

Adding videos through Upload method

Four fields will be visible when Upload is selected.

If you want to give the users the option to switch between HD and Non HD videos, then you have to upload two formats of the video.

If you don’t want to give the users a choice then you can upload just one format, either HD or Non HD. Leave the second field “Upload HD Video (optional)” as blank.

Once you finish uploading the videos you got to upload a thumb image and preview image for it.

Below this, there is a Video Info section where you can add Title, Description, Target URL for the video, assign playlist, sort order(recently we added Ajax sorting where you can sort the videos simply by click and drag from the Videos tab), enable post roll and pre roll ads for this video.

Adding videos through URL method

Upload the videos and images through FTP to any location on your web server. For example you can add videos to Videos Folder and Images to images Folder on your web server and provide the absolute path here

Like this:

http://www.yourdomain.com/videos/video.mp4

http://www.yourdomain.com/images/image.jpg

Below this, there is a Video Info section where you can add Title, Description, Target URL for the video, assign playlist, sort order(recently we added Ajax sorting where you can sort the videos simply by click and drag from the Videos tab), enable post roll and pre roll ad for this video.

Adding videos from YouTube

To avoid bandwidth consumption from your web server you can smartly add videos to the YouTube and can provide the link here.

You can get the YouTube URL from the video info box on the right side of the youtube website

Adding videos through FFMPEG

Before you start uploading the videos using FFMPEG, make sure you provide the path of your FFMPEG on the HD FLV Player settings.

If you are not sure about the path to mention there, please check with your hosting provider for the details.

After you set the path to FFMPEG you can upload any HD file to convert it to lower resolution automatically. You need not upload thumb or preview image while using FFMPEG, which will be created automatically.

Provide the path to the Non HD videos or HD videos or both the path if you have. Also provide the path to the thumb and preview image.
