Installation Notes / Tips

FILES PATHS

If you are having problems installing this media player, the first thing to try is using absolute paths instead of relative paths. For example,

Instead of using a relative path like below

options.playlistXmlPath = "playlist.xml"

Use a full absolute path:

options.playlistXmlPath = "http://www.yoursite.com/playlist.xml"

EDITING PLAYLISTS

An XML playlist is essentially structured data in text format. In order to edit a playlist you need to open it with a simple text editor like notepad or an HTML editor such as Adobe Dreamweaver.

Do not edit xml files with Microsoft Word as it tends to add a lot of unwanted elements to the file rendering it unusable by the media player.

Every photo in the playlist is represented by the block of text below, copy/paste as many as needed into your xml file to build your playlist.

If you don't need thumbnails, titles or descriptions, simply delete these lines.

<item>
	<image>/images/photo2.jpg</image>
<thumb>/images/thumbs/photo2.jpg</thumb>
<title>This is an optional caption</title>
<description>This is an optional description</description>
</item>

Embedding methods

You'll notice there are three different sample embed html files in the provided zip package:

This html file includes the code required to embed multiple players in one page.

sampleEmbedObject.html

F.A.Q.

How do I modify the media players parameters?

To modify the parameters of the media players, you need to modify or add options to the embed code. For example, if you wanted to change the background and buttons colors of the flash mp3 player to black, you would add / edit the backColor, firstColor and secondColor options.

Do I get the player .fla with my purchase?

No, we do not sell the .fla files of our players, we do however provide customizable .swf files. The Adobe Flash Authoring software is not needed to customize the players.
