M’re’s Flash Video Player
Below is the thing that kept me busy for the past 2 days. It’s my own music video viewer which I called M’re’s Flash Video Player.
I have featured 2 video clips on my blog in the past, and previously, once I replaced the old video with a new old, the old video is not accessible and viewable anymore. Somehow I want we able to choose the past video if I want to watch it.
And also, I just recently encounter that my hosting change its plan. Before, they offered 100MB web space with unlimited bandwidth. And now, I just found out that my package has been changed to 1GB web space with 10GB bandwidth monthly. Gosh. They never inform me about this. At least, just send a simple informing me about this.
But I’m glad! I got 1GB space now on my server. It simply means that I can upload more videos.
All the videos are in Flash Video format. I kinda like this format. The filesize is small and yet it doesn’t sacrifice the quality of the image (i.e no horror pixelation in the video image).
Here are tools used to prepare this, and some technical information about this
- Macromedia Flash 8 Video Encoder used to convert movie file to FLV format. All movie files are encoded to Flash 8 – Low Quality (150kbps) format
- Playlist stored in MySQL database
- Video files stored at my 1GB web hosting
- PHP programming language to program the page
- Macromedia Dreamweaver to put everything together
How to use?
Simple. Just choose the video that you want to play from the drop down list. The video will be played automatically after that. And also, it remembers the last video that you choose. Meaning when you come back the next time, that last video that you choose last time will be played.
Oh, btw, the M’re’s Flash Video section is visible only at the Main Page, and not at Archive Page or Item Page. Just to get rid of the annoyance, or else, the video will restart each and every time you click the Archive Page links or Item Page links. Click here to go to the main page.
Enjoy the list that I have now. It will certainly grow in the future.
