Thanks a lot, I also appreciate your quick reply. I am going to download and use it, just a quick question can i put my logo on the video player.

Not sure about that. The 'Youtube Gallery' add-on allows allows you to do that (There are legal issues with doing that so proceed at your own risk!) -

Thanks for your reply,the youtube gallery is not what I want actually. I have a new issue unfortunately, the flowplayer add-on is incompatible with version concrete Can you pls advise me

It should be compatible with I have it running on version just fine.

What kind of problem are you having with it? Have you tried clearing the cache under site-wide settings?

It says on the add-on page that it - "Works With 5.3 —"

You can try downloading the archive here- - If that doesnt work then you can find the archive link ('Download Archive') on the add-on page-

I can try having a look for you if want. If you don't feel comfortable giving me your login details then you can create a new user for the process and delete that user account afterwards.

I just had a look and you are in fact running Concrete5 Version 5.5.1. That'll be the main reason you couldn't install the 'Flow Player' add-on through the dashboard.

Did you upgrade from to 5.5.1 since our last correspondence on the forum?

The best thing to do is contact the developer of the 'Flow Player' add-on (Todd Crowe - ) using the support page and ask if he will kindly be updating the add-on for Version 5.5.

You can do that here - .

You could try to install it manually by downloading the archive and uploading it to the back end; However, it's not really advisable to do so as it may cause you some issues.

I don't think it will break your website but you may have some irregularities in the editing interface.

Let me know how you get on and if you need any further clarification or help.

Best wishes,

Another option-

This is a straight embed from youtube with some customisation.
Use the 'HTML' Block.

The HTML looks like this -
<iframe width="800" height="437" src=";&?modestbranding=1&autoplay=1&loop=1&controls=0&enablejsapi=1&origin=" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

The breakdown looks like this -

iframe width and height- get these from the youtube embed option. Customise them your liking and use the sizes they give you or use the 'custom size' option.

- all you need to change here is the video url which is actually just this part
. Remove that and replace it with your own.
So if this is the full url (
; you would only need to use this part

modestbranding=1 - will get rid of all the youtube logos bar one (This will only appear if you hover over the very top of the vid). Youtube now say that you must have at least one logo on your vid. Get rid of all of them and they will close your youtube account and take legal action.

autoplay=1 - will ofcourse autoplay the vid on pageload. Change to 0 to disable autoplay.

loop=1 - will loop the vid and restart it from the beginning. Change to 0 to disable looping.

controls=0 - disable and hides all the controls (play/ ff/ rewind) Change it to 1 if you want them to show.

frameborder="0" - gets rid of the youtube frame and gives you a chromeless player. Change accordingly.

This is exactly what I was looking for! Only my video isn't looping. I copied the html just as you have it and linked it to a test video. Am I missing something?

<iframe width="600" height="437" src=";&?modestbranding=1&autoplay=1&loop=1&controls=0&enablejsapi=1&origin=" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

I found the solution! This will loop the video, but it is not seamless.

You have to enter &playlist=xxxxxxx after &loop=1

<iframe width="800" height="400" src=";&autoplay=1&?modestbranding=1&controls=0&enablejsapi=1&origin=" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe>

I hope this helps someone!

I've just installed FlowPlayer and been testing it out. Easy to use and works great, thanks so much to the developer for making this available free.

My question is, how can I align the player within the block to suit my needs? The player seems centered in the block by default and I'd really like to be able to align it to the left for the page I'm designing? Would be nice if this was an option, but hopefully it's easy to fix?

Any help would be appreciated.
