Flash FLV Player 1.01      View Specification

Specs 1.01 - This player features the bare minimum of functionality that you would expect from an FLV Player.

FLV Player 1.01 by Theo Lagendijk is a fast, elegant, lightweight and most importantly free Movie Player for Flash video files. (*.flv's)
In it's current form it contains;
  • Play button
  • Pause button
  • Seek bar
    • An indication of what fraction of the movie you've seen.
    • The possibility to direct the play head to any point in the movie!
    • A way to see how far the movie is downloaded*
  • Busy Animation*
    To show that the player is still responding but is currently not playing the movie because it's either loading, buffering or seeking.
  • An about dialog that displays the FLV Players version number and points to the FLV Player website*
  • The interface is predominantly white but has black outlines.
    This guarantees that the controls are visible in almost every movie context.
  • Multi size.*
    The FLV Player can display video of any height and width that you want. (see instructions)
  • Fullscreen functionality.*
    There's a fullscreen toggle button. In resizing between the user defined size and the fullscreen size, the aspect ratio of the movie is maintained and the interface controls are redrawn to fit the new size.
* Brand new since FLV Player 1.01!
