Flowplayer 5 Released

Tuesday, October 2nd, 2012 | Business | by

FlowplayerFlowplayer 5 was released a few days ago.

The new player has a bunch of new / cleaned up bits of functionality:

  • Streamlined design
  • HTML5 comes first!  Flash is no longer the default, it’s HTML5.  Glad to see this
  • Fully responsive
  • Some functionality previously supported through plugins is now built into the player (playlists, cuepoints, google analytics, and embedding)
  • Random seeking (no matter what has been loaded)
  • Native full screen — no more using flash to force the full screen mode
  • Keyboard shortcuts built in (volume, seek, fullscreen, mute, play/pause, stop)
  • Simplified syntax
  • Primarily CSS based styling (no more complex JS embeds)
  • Splash screens w/o Javascript (enhanced performance, more flexible, supposedly easier to build overlays / inlays)
  • Embeddable (mentioned earlier) — you can even include your brand if you have the commercial version and propagate your brand

Flowplayer has been my favorite video player for at least a few years, and looks like it will stay that way for another few years.
