Hello,

I am using Adobe Contribute 4 to manage the website where I work. Contribute uses FLVPlayer_Progressive.swf to embed flash videos. I am having trouble figuring out a way to include a poster image. I realize that JW player and probably others easily allow this to be done, but for simplicity sake I want to upload the videos via Contribute (someone else will actually be managing the video content). The other problem with JW player is that each video requires it's own player i.e. it won't allow for several videos to reference the same player, and there will be several videos on each page.

The code that is generated when uploading through Contribute is:

<script type="text/javascript">
AC_FL_RunContent( 'codebase','http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0','width','480','height','320','id','FLVPlayer','src','FLVPlayer_Progressive','flashvars','&MM_ComponentVersion=1&skinName=Clear_Skin_1&streamName=tom-bay&autoPlay=false&autoRewind=false','quality','high','scale','noscale','name','FLVPlayer','salign','lt','pluginspage','http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer','movie','FLVPlayer_Progressive' ); //end AC code

</script><noscript><object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0" width="480" height="320" id="FLVPlayer">
<param name="movie" value="FLVPlayer_Progressive.swf" />
<param name="salign" value="lt" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="scale" value="noscale" />
<param name="FlashVars" value="&MM_ComponentVersion=1&skinName=Clear_Skin_1&streamName=tom-bay&autoPlay=false&autoRewind=false" />

<embed src="FLVPlayer_Progressive.swf" flashvars="&MM_ComponentVersion=1&skinName=Clear_Skin_1&streamName=tom-bay&autoPlay=false&autoRewind=false" quality="high" scale="noscale" width="480" height="320" name="FLVPlayer" salign="LT" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />


I greatly appreciate any solutions for this. Thanks.

You can use playerdiy.com. It is a quick and effective way to create custom FLV player with playlist for website, that is to say, you can add multiple flv videos in one player with the playlist. Here is the tutorial - http://www.playerdiy.com/support/tutorial/...deo-player.html

Are you saying this is an ordinary image, JPG, PNG or whatever, and not a flash file?
