Review of video / audio flash-players

In this topic, I will try to consecrate the pros and cons of free video / audio flash-players that I could find in Habré.


Supported media formats: FLV, SWF, MP3, MP4, H.264 video, JPG and PNG
Demo: http://flowplayer.org/demos/index.html
  1. Playing both video formats and audio.
  2. In the audio there is an opportunity to insert a picture as a screensaver.
  3. A huge number of plugins
  4. Plugin to send links by mail (simple mailto :)
  5. Plugin to generate code to insert the player in your blog.
  6. Publication plugin in popular bookmarks / social networks, including Twitter and Facebook.
