The JW Player content element type allows content managers to easily add pre-recorded and live streaming Adobe Flash videos to their web site. The element is used in conjunction with Longtail Video's JW Player (free or licensed) to provide a fully customizable video player.
Installation
Download the JW Player from Longtail Video web site (choose either the free version or purchase the licensed version). Double click on the archive file downloaded to extract the contents.

You'll need to upload the files to your web site. The first file to upload is swfobject.js. Upload this file to your server, preferably a subdirectory of your site, such as /javascript.

Next, upload yt.swf and player.swf (or player-licensed.swf for the licensed version of JW Player), again preferably to a subdirectory, such as /javascript/swf.

Now download the JW Player element (if your browser displays the XML package instead of saving to a file, use your browser's "save as" feature to save the file). Install this element using the instructions described in Section 8 ("Adding a Content Element Type") of the Administration Manual.

Configuration
The JW Player element needs to know where the swfobject.js and .swf files for the player are installed. After installing the JW Player element, click on the "settings" link for the JW Player element and enter the directory locations for javascript and swf files (eg "/javascript/" and "/javascript/swf/"). For general instructions on configuring a ContentCafe content element type see the Administration Manual, Section 8 ("Content Element Settings").
Displays
The included display shows the selected video file in the video viewer with the selected options (eg play/pause button) displayed.
HTML5/Flash Display
This display uses the HTML5 video feature of JW Player to display videos using HTML5. For browsers that do not support HTML5 video the display will fall back to the Flash version of the player.

Note that this display does not currently support streaming.

Click on the link below to download the XSL display. If the display loads in your browser's window, use the browser's "Save As" feature to save the display to a file. Then add the display to the "JW Player" element in the Site Administration page (see Section 8, "Content Displays" in the Site Administration manual).
