This video player works when the video is stored on Amazon S3; also works when the video is stored on your own website. Nice.

My problem is selfsame like olesuper8 … When using the timeline to navigate video stops and all functions stop. The video wont play again unless I reload the page…

CodingJack

Hi dragomanski,

An option to force Flash only exists for Firefox in case you want to deploy a single mp4 video across all devices (Firefox + Mac + HTML5 Video doesn’t not support .mp4 and requires a fallback ”.webm or .ogv video to work, hence why Flash is a good alternative sometimes for Firefox).

Send me an email from my profile page with a link to your site and I’ll help you solve your “timeline click” issue.

HI, I only have movies larger than 1 GB and I’m looking for the best way to watch these movies online. Regular mp4-files take ages to preload (mostly my browser crashes in the meantime).
I read that mov-files are best for web streaming since I can set the movie to play while it just started loading (I’m new to video so honestly I have no idea). Can your script playback mov-files or is there any other way how I can set up your player so it starts playing other formats quickly without preloading lots of data?

CodingJack

Hi in4fun,

I wouldn’t recommend any HTML5 video player for videos this large. I think you’d probably be better off using a Flash streaming service similar to how major network television studios offer video.

-Jack

in4fun

Thanks for your straight up answer Jack!
I did some more research after your recommendation and I guess my best option is to go with a Vimeo Plus account ($50 per year).

Thanks a lot for your advice :)

Hello,

Plugin looks great but I have two questions before I purchase:

1: can the video auto play on load?

2: Can the volume be set to 0 by default or muted when auto playing?

CodingJack

Hi Corey,

Yes both of these these things can be set.

Hi,

Is there a way to stop the controls appearing on mouseover?

Thanks

CodingJack

Hi Absent42,

Do you want to remove the controls completely, or just make them so they always show?

How could i make this video player repeat video after it is done?

CodingJack

Hi sunerrandgarcia,

Looping isn’t currently available, but it could be added to the HTML5 version of the player by adding the following line of code to the “cj-video-player/js/cj-video-player.js” file:

At the bottom of the “videoEnded” function found around line #985, add this:

togglePlayPause();

Is there a way lets say its a video of 40 min but it has not loaded all the way to play the video on 20 min mark? I donot mean to start the video but to select the 20 min mark

CodingJack

Hi Sunerandgarcia,

This would require “Pseudo Streaming” which is not yet supported by all major browsers for HTML5 (you’d have to use Flash).

Hi,

Would it be possible to (auto) play a local mp4 file in a pop up when you click on an image?

Thanks

CodingJack

Hi Magicbytes,

It really depends on the popup script you’re using, but in general this is possible.

Hi, CodingJack

It works on Blogger ? So how i can install this player on my blogger ?

Thanks

Default-user
EeMMeR Purchased

Okay i just installed code and then how i can embed code on post/pages in blogger ?

CodingJack

Hi EeMMeR,

The player isn’t automatically built for Blogger, so the HTML for the player (found inside the html files included with the download source) would need to be added manually to your pages.

I would be interested to buy this for an cms under an extra extended license. The only thing stopping me is that under flash fallback it doesn’t seem to work, just shows an black screen, you right click and play video and only sound is available. Tested Chrome + Firefox – html5 works good, Safari goes to flash (as expected) and has the behavior explained. :( I’m using Windows 8 & 8.1 and latest version of Safari. PS: Your demo does the same.

CodingJack

Hi MediaVibe,

I think you may be using an older version of the player? An update was previously made for this, I just hadn’t got around to updating the live preview yet (just updated it now). To update, download a fresh copy of the player from your CodeCanyon “downloads” page, and replace everything inside the “cj-video-player/js/” folder.

-Jack

MediaVibe

Thanks Jack, I will do that and test. Are you open for some custom coding? So I know if I trouble you with a mail in case it takes my team to much to understand your coding.

CodingJack

Hi MediaVibe,

Sure, feel free to send me an email from my profile page any time :)

-Jack

MediaVibe

I’ve just brought the extended license as it works good with our cms, had to remove the height from resize cause it was making the flash version to tall, but else, no issues. Any plans to add an logo to it? This seems to be the biggest miss it has.

CodingJack

Hi MediaVibe,

Yes a logo has been one of the more requested features, so I plan on adding it at some point. In your CodeCanyon “downloads” page, check the box next to Chameleon that says “notify me of updates” and you’ll get an email whenever the plugin is updated :)

-Jack

MediaVibe

Hi, did that already ;) Not new here :) We’re working on the logo and and ads support as well, but you know your product better.

The player is really cool. But I found a small problem (maybe it is not a prolem in facts) : when trying to open video in Firefox, the Flash is being enabled and video starts playing only after the whole video MP4 file is cached. It is ok for small video files. But if it is big (~100 MB) it takes much time to wait until the mp4 is cached. It seems to be a JS issue. Can you pls help? Thanks!

CodingJack

Hi wearpinto,

This is usually a video issue where the video is missing some important meta data (specifically “total time”), and as a result, Flash often has trouble figuring out when it’s ok to start playing the video. Try re-encoding your video with Miro Video Encoder. Adobe Media Encoder also usually works well if you happen to have that program.

-Jack

WeArePinto

Thanks for the hint. Yes, this may be a trouble with meta data. Will check it

Hello Jack. i just bought this great plugin. my question is: if i add more videos on the same html page..it would affect the page load or video loading time?

i am asking this because in the wp version 9 which i also bought) it seems that this problem is persistent.

thanks

CodingJack

Hi adverthott,

Yes the video’s will preload, so I wouldn’t suggest having multiple videos on the same page without using this method.

Hi piglabs,

YouTube video is not supported. Just local-hosted video.

Hi there CodingJack,

I was wondering if it would be possible to allow a form of skipping ahead of the currently buffered file in order to be able to buffer from a set point on the cj-vid line. Much like the default html <video> tags?

If this is not possible then it’s not a huge problem.

May I also take the time to say I love the player, very nicely done so kudos to you. Bought this a while ago but only really got to start to use it :).
