  17. 17. JW Player Module The Best free solution to implement JW Player in Joomla 10.5. Cross domain Security The Adobe Flash Player contains a cross domain security mechanism that denies certain operations on files that are loaded from a different domain than the player. The easiest and best way to access 3rd party data is for the provider of that data to host a crossdomain.xml configuration file in its web root. Before the Flash Player attempts to load data from any site other than the one hosting the SWF, it first checks the remote site for the existence of a crossdomain.xml. If the player finds it, and if the configuration permits external access of its data, then the data is loaded. Otherwise, a runtime security error is thrown. Here’s an example of a crossdomain.xml that allows access to the domains data from SWF files on any site: <?xml version="1.0"?> <!DOCTYPE cross-domain-policy SYSTEM "http://www.macromedia.com/xml/dtds/cross-domain-policy.dtd"> <cross-domain-policy> <allow-access-from domain="*" /> </cross-domain-policy> Our plugins.LongTailvideo.com domain includes such a cross domain file, so players from any domain can load the plugins hosted there. Although plugins will reside on plugins.LongTailvideo.com (or another plugin root you set), the crossdomain.xml file needs to allow data access from the site hosting the player itself, not the plugin. For example, if the player is hosted at www.site.com/player.swf and tries to access data from www.data.com, even if data.coms crossdomain.xml file allows access to plugins.LongTailvideo.com, the Flash player will throw a security exception. http://developer.LongTailvideo.com/trac/wiki/FlashSecurity http://www.adobe.com/devnet/articles/crossdomain_policy_file_spec.html All you have to do is to upload a crossdomain.xml file to your web root server and save it where you put your (xml and flv) filesJoomlarulez E-mail: webmaster@joomlarulez.com Web site: http://www.joomlarulez.com Page 17 / 44 – JW Player Module 2.8.0

  24. 24. JW Player Module The Best free solution to implement JW Player in Joomla11. Files Support This page lists all media files, streaming and playlist types that the JW Player supports. 11.1. Single Files Flash Playback Note that the player always tries to recognize a file format by its extension. If no suitable extension is found, the player will presume you want to load a playlist! Get around this issue by setting the provider flashvar, e.g. provider=video. • Video Formats: H.264 (.mp4, .mov, .f4v), FLV (.flv), 3GPP (.3gp, .3g2), (provider=video). • Sound Formats: AAC (.aac, .m4a), MP3 (.mp3) (provider=sound). • Image Formats: JPEG (.jpg), PNG (.png), GIF (.gif) (provider=image). Heres a list with commonly encountered issues: • Though SWF files will also load in the player, it is discouraged to use them. The player cannot read the duration and dimensions of SWF files and cannot control their volume or playback. • You cannot seek within an MP4 file before it is completely downloaded. The cause of this problem is that the so-called MOOV atom (which contains the seeking information) is located at the end of your video. Check out this little application to parse your videos and fix it. • You encounter too fast or too slow playback of MP3 files. It contains variable bitrate encoding or unsupported sample frequencies (e.g. 48 KHz). Please stick to a constant bitrate encoding and 44 kHz. The free iTunes software has a decent MP3 encoder. Note that the 4.x player actually supports fewer formats than the 3.x player (due to bugs in the AVM2). • The progress bar isnt running with your FLV file, or your video dimensions are wrong. This is because your FLV file doesnt have metadata. Fix this by using this small tool from www.buraks.com/flvmdi/. More technical info on the file formats supported by Flash can be found in this blogpost from Tinic Uro, one of the developers of the Flash plugin. • Webpage on LongTail http://developer.LongTailvideo.com/trac/wiki/Player5Formats#SingleFiles Joomlarulez E-mail: webmaster@joomlarulez.com Web site: http://www.joomlarulez.com Page 24 / 44 – JW Player Module 2.8.0
  25. 25. JW Player Module The Best free solution to implement JW Player in Joomla 11.2. Youtube Videos The player includes native support for playing back YouTube videos (provider=youtube). YouTube playback is automatically enabled when the file option is assigned to the URL of a YouTube video. This value can take one of the following forms: • http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ylLzyHk54Z0 • http://www.youtube.com/watch#!v=ylLzyHk54Z0 • http://www.youtube.com/v/ylLzyHk54Z0 • http://youtu.be/ylLzyHk54Z0 Note: Version 5.6 of the JW Player uses YouTubes ActionScript 3 Chromeless API to render YouTube content, meaning that YouTube may place ads over the video during playback. These videos are unplayable in YouTubes previous API, meaning that older versions of the JW Player (5.5 and below) will not be allowed to play those videos. Note: since 5.3 version of JW Player for YouTube playlist items where no image is specified, it pulls the image automatically. • How-To Specific How to use a Youtube Playlist/Channel/Tag in External RSS Link ? • Webpage on LongTail http://developer.LongTailvideo.com/trac/wiki/Player5Formats#YoutubeVideosJoomlarulez E-mail: webmaster@joomlarulez.com Web site: http://www.joomlarulez.com Page 25 / 44 – JW Player Module 2.8.0
  26. 26. JW Player Module The Best free solution to implement JW Player in Joomla 11.3. HTTP Streaming Both FLV and MP4 video can be played back with so-called HTTP pseudo- streaming servers. These servers allow video viewers to skip to non-downloaded parts of a video. HTTP streaming can be enabled by setting the flashvar provider=http in the player. Here are a few examples of such streaming servers: • The H264 streaming module for Apache, Lighttpd, IIS and NginX. • The mod_flv_streaming module for Lighttpd. • PHP/ASP scripts such as XmooV PHP. • Content delivery networks such as Bitgravity, Edgecast or Limelight. Next to the provider=http flashvar, two flashvars are available to configure HTTP streaming: • By default, the querystring parameter to provide the start position to the server is called start. (e.g. http://server.com/video.flv?start=3489512). As of version 4.6, 4.7, this parameter can be configured with the flashvar http.startparam. For example, the Edgecast CDN uses ec_seek, Bitgravity uses starttime and Limelight uses fs as pseudostreaming start parameter. • If you use a PHP/ASP/* script for pseudo-streaming, you must provide the location of that script with the streamer flashvar. Instead of directly calling the file with start parameter, the player will then call the script, with both file and start as parameters (e.g. (e.g. http://server.com/streamscript.php?file=video.flv&start=3489512). • Webpage on LongTail http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player/jw-player-for-flash-v5/12534/video- delivery-http-pseudo-streamingJoomlarulez E-mail: webmaster@joomlarulez.com Web site: http://www.joomlarulez.com Page 26 / 44 – JW Player Module 2.8.0
  27. 27. JW Player Module The Best free solution to implement JW Player in Joomla 11.4. RTMP Streaming FLV and MP4 video and MP3 and AAC audio can also be streamed with RTMP Servers, using the provider=rtmp flashvar. In addition to this, RTMP live streams can be played in the player. The following RTMP servers are supported: • Wowza Media Server • Flash Media Server • Red5 server In addition to the file and the provider=rtmp flashvar, RTMP streams usually need a third flashvar streamer, which gives the player the location of the RTMP server (e.g. streamer=rtmp://edge.sercer.com/application). The player will figure out by itself if it needs to strip the .flv extension off the file, or if it needs to prepend a mp4: or mp3: string to load the file. In 5.0, this behaviour can be skipped by setting the rtmp.prepend=false flashvar. Most frequently used RTMP functionality (such as 302 redirects, the getstreamlength call and Wowzas secureToken) is built into the player. In addition to this, the player supports load balancing with XML files. This is used by e.g. the Highwinds and VDO-X CDNs. Instead of loading the video, the RTMP model presumes that the file flashvar is actually an intermediate SMIL file, which is then loaded and parsed to retrieve the actual RTMP streamer and file. In version 5.0 of the player, turn this on by adding the flashvar rtmp.loadbalance=true. Heres an example of such a SMIL file, in case youre interested in building this into your own CDN:<smil> <head> <meta base="rtmp://68.16.184.155/n9f8m2x7/_definst_"/> </head> <body> <videosrc="fms/video?doppl=164314e15f9563d3&dopsig=9bfcdaefc371a52fe049bf87c03b7776"/> </body></smil> A special RTMP case is the live broadcast through the Akamai or Limelight networks. These CDNs use a stream subscription mechanism for load balancing. This is supported by the player by setting the provider flashvar to fcsubscribe. The regular file and streamer flashvars are still needed. In player 5.0 you can also set the flashvar provider to rtmp and rtmp.subscribe to true. • Webpage on LongTail http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player/jw-player-for-flash-v5/12535/video- delivery-rtmp-streaming Joomlarulez E-mail: webmaster@joomlarulez.com Web site: http://www.joomlarulez.com Page 27 / 44 – JW Player Module 2.8.0
  28. 28. JW Player Module The Best free solution to implement JW Player in Joomla 11.5. DVR Support The JW Player 5.3+ supports RTMP DVR streaming, a feature introduced by Adobes Flash Media Interactive Server 3.5. DVR streaming allows users to pause/resume a live stream or seek back for a replay. In short, DVR allows a live stream to behave exactly like an on-demand stream; the only difference being that the duration might increase. Note: JW Player versions 5.1 and 5.2 use a no longer supported mechanism for DVR streaming. • Webpage on LongTail http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player/jw-player-for-flash- v5/12398/enabling-dvr-streamingJoomlarulez E-mail: webmaster@joomlarulez.com Web site: http://www.joomlarulez.com Page 28 / 44 – JW Player Module 2.8.0
  29. 29. JW Player Module The Best free solution to implement JW Player in Joomla 11.6. XML Playlists First, note that playlist XML files are subject to the Crossdomain security restrictions of Flash. This means that a video player on one domain cannot load a playlist from another domain. It can be fixed by placing a crossdomain.xml file at the server the captions are loaded from. That said the following playlist formats are supported: • ASX feeds (example) • ATOM feeds with Media extensions (example) • RSS feeds with iTunes (example) extensions and Media extensions (example) • XSPF feeds (example) Here is an overview of all the tags of each format the player processes, and the flashvars they correspond to: Flashvars XSPF RSS itunes: media: ASX ATOM author creator - author credit author - date - pubDate - - - published description annotation description summary description abstract summary duration duration - duration content duration - file location enclosure - content ref - link info link - - moreinfo link image image - - thumbnail - - start - - - - starttime - streamer - - - - - - tags - category keywords keywords - - title title title - title title title provider - - - - - - All media: tags can be embedded in a media:group element. A media:content element can also act as a container. Additionally, iTunes and MediaRSS tags can be mixed in one RSS feed. The player will pick the last matching element for each property. • Webpage on LongTail http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player/jw-player-for-flash-v5/12537/xml- playlist-supportJoomlarulez E-mail: webmaster@joomlarulez.com Web site: http://www.joomlarulez.com Page 29 / 44 – JW Player Module 2.8.0
  30. 30. JW Player Module The Best free solution to implement JW Player in Joomla 11.7. JWPlayer Namespace In order to enable all JW Player file properties for all feed formats, the 4.4 player introduced a jwplayer namespace. By inserting this into your feed, file properties that are not supported by the feed format itself (such as the provider or duration in an RSS feed) can be amended without breaking validation. Any of the flashvars listed in the above table can be inserted. Heres an example:<rss version="2.0"xmlns:jwplayer="http://developer.LongTailvideo.com/trac/wiki/FlashFormats"> <channel> <title>Example RSS feed with jwplayer extensions</title> <item> <title>FLV Video</title> <link>http://www.bigbuckbunny.org/</link> <description>Big Buck Bunny is a short animated film by the BlenderInstitute, part of the Blender Foundation.</description> <enclosure url="../../testing/files/bunny.flv" type="video/x-flv"length="1192846" /> <jwplayer:author>the Peach Open Movie Project</jwplayer:author> <jwplayer:provider>http</jwplayer:provider> <jwplayer:duration>34</jwplayer:duration> </item> </channel></rss> Pay attention to the top level tag, which describes the JW Player namespace with the xmlns attribute. This must be available in order to not break validity. You can mix jwplayer elements with both the regular elements of a feed and elements from other extensions (mrss/itunes). If multiple elements match the same property, the elements will be prioritized: • Elements that are defined by the feed format (e.g. the enclosure in RSS) get the lowest priority. • Elements defined by the itunes namespace rank third. • Element defined by the media namespace (e.g. media:content) rank second. • Elements defined by the jwplayer extension always gets the highest priority. This feature allows you to set, for example, a specific video version or streaming provider for the JW Player, while other feed aggregators will pick the default content. • Webpage on LongTail http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player/jw-player-for-flash-v5/12537/xml-playlist-support Joomlarulez E-mail: webmaster@joomlarulez.com Web site: http://www.joomlarulez.com Page 30 / 44 – JW Player Module 2.8.0
