  1. What file types does the FLV Plugin play? Does it play .mp4 files?

    Currently the FLV Plugin is designed to specifically play .flv files. While it can also play .mp4 files we don’t fully support that.

  2. What version of WordPress is the FLV Plugin compatible with?

    It should work with anything from 2.7.1 and higher.

  3. Can the FLV Plugin have a redirect at the end of the video?

    Yes, there is one field that you specify the URL of where you want the visitor to be redirected to at the end of the video.

  4. Can this plugin be used for anything else other than WordPress?

    No, this plugin is created specifically to work with in sites that are running WordPress.

  5. Can I use this plugin on more than one site?

    Yes, you can use it on as many sites that you own. It is not intended to be purchased by a webmaster and then installed on the sites of clients. If you own more than one site of your own, you can use it on all of them. You can not give it away to others to use on their sites.

  6. Is this Mac compatible?

    Because it is a plugin for WordPress it doesn’t matter. The plugin will run on the server. If the site is running WordPress it will not matter what kind of computer your are using to set it up. A Mac computer will work just fine to download the plugin and install it on your site.

  7. Does this work with files that are hosted on Amazon S3?

    Yes, this is the way most people use it. If you upload a .flv file to your Amazon S3 account you simply need the URL of that file and you will be able to have the plugin reference that file and play it from your Amazon S3 Account.

  8. Do you have an Affiliate Program?

    Yes. The FLV Plugin is created by Athens Development, Inc. There is an affiliate program for all of our products. You can find more information about it at:http://flvplugin.com/affiliates

  9. Can you use this to play Camtasia Videos?

    Yes and No. The plugin was designed to specifically play .flv files. In previous versions of Camtasia you were able to save your recordings as .flv files. In there current version you can save your recordings as .mp4 files.

    The FLV Plugin can play a .mp4 file. However, it works best when you have it set to Auto Play. There is currently a small issue with trying to load a .mp4 file and not play automatically. We are working to resolve that issue.

  10. Can this play videos in Full Screen Mode?

    No, some players have an option to click a button and zoom a video to “Full Screen” mode. The players within the FLV Plugin will not currently do that. However, if you have a larger sized video, you can set it up to play in a light box. The light box can be set to cover the majority of the screen if your video has large dimensions.

  11. Can I use the FLV Plugin to play videos on a commercial site?

    Yes, unlike many of the other FLV Players available, the FLV Plugin is created to allow you to play videos on both personal and commercial websites.
