FLV Video Players?
I'm looking for a nice flv video player that's customizable and easy to use and preferably free to use without restrictions or branding. Flowplayer looks really nice, but the commercial lisence is bit out of my budget and I don't think it's style can be customized.
JW player is also nice and is much cheaper, but seems more difficult to style and has fewer features.
Would it be difficult to create a custom FLV player from scratch? Does anyone know of a good, up to date tutorial for this? I have Flash CS3.
No it's not that tough to create your own. The good part about building your own is that the appearance can be whatever shape or design you'd like, from simple to far out. All the real work is done by the ActionScript in the background, not just because something happens to looks like a button. So use your imagination!!
Here's some example of custom players:
for .flv video
custom music players like:
So what I'm trying to get across is that your player can be unique, any size or shape you want. The action is all happening behind the scenes with the AS.
Here's a good source for tuts to create your own:
