Video block, stop auto play

I am using the video block but as there is going to be several videos on the page I really don't want all the vids auto playing.
I have looked in the view.php for this block and have changed all autoplay/start code from true to false but it has no effect on the videos, they still start automatically.

Any ideas how I can achieve this?

You might be better off using the YouTube add-on or the Vimeo add-on.
Then you get all the great 'sharing' and 'embedding' features that these services provide.

The Flash Video and Media Library add-ons include a thumbnail generator which you can use from the Concrete5 library. If you click on a video and select "Edit", you can play the video and press "Update Thumbnail" when you like the image. This will automatically be used as the poster frame whenever the video is embedded on your site, which gives the user a preview without requiring their browser to download the full video.

I originally built the Flash Video block because the core block wasn't meeting my needs. The Media Library block works with file sets, so you can embed a set of videos or audio files onto your page and have tags or paging handled automatically. Auto-play is optional. You might be interested in one of these to solve your problem

Autostart was not specified for .flv files.

The way to it will be to append &autostart=false to the flashvar and data values.

But doing so makes the video disappear.

I see autostart is on the TODO list.

Or did you get this sorted out?

You can rebuild the videoPlayer.fla

and have these lines added to the action-script
just after "stage.addEventListener(MouseEvent.MOUSE_UP, volUp);"

bigPlay_mc.alpha = 1;

This will work fine.

Check the file attached!
I've rebuild it for you!

So you can have the videoPlayer.swf that doesn't automatically start the movie - and use it directly. (Put it where it belongs: /concrete/blocks/video )

Hello, I had this issue solved in a previous version of C5 and before migrating to a new server. After the migration, it has gone back to autoplay. I have uploaded the videoPlayer.swf file you created along with a couple of others all to no avail. It still plays. Any suggestions?

I too am having this problem. Is there a solution to stop the auto play?

If you have upgraded your Concrete5 to another version,
the folder location of the .SWF has probably changed to e.g.:
