JW Media Player – A Godsend For Flash Streaming
So, you want or need to stream multimediaÂ content from your website; you don't have time or money to figure out or pay someone to figure out how to do what you need; and you need it toÂ look reasonably pro.
Where do you go?
Â It's a fantastic, versatile free piece of software you can just plug into any website and use to start streaming content right away!
The best thing however, is that it works really well alongside the Red 5 streaming flash server via the oflaDemo app, and as such completes the package of a free streaming flash solution that looks good and performs well.
Just remember, when following the examples of how to get it to work with at least true streamsÂ (i.e. not progressive downloads)Â give the mediaplayer.swf an absolute url
If anybody needs help getting this to work with Red 5 feel free to drop me an email or leave a comment and I'll help you out
