Busy on OpenNTF

I have submitted 2 contributions to OpenNTF this morning:

The control allows easy displaying a movie via Longtail Video’s Flash player. A wizard demonstrates which properties you can set.
I hope you like them and happy development! =)

    Wow. Cool!! I’m actually doing the exact same thing for the contest. What a great idea! 🙂

    I’ll hold off on downloading yours till I get mine done and submitted. Though I suspect, as I think I mentioned on X Cast I think, that if 2 or more JWPlayer controls get submitted – mine would likely NOT be the best. 🙂

    Looking forward to seeing what you did with it.

    Question: How did you get around the licensing issue? From talking to openNTF it didn’t sound like I could include the actual player. I was planning to put instructions in on how to download and install it. Did you do the same thing?

    Did you look at videoJS by any chance? I think that has better licensing but I myself need to stick with JWPlayer for a particular feature.

    I am interested in your JWPlayer custom control as we have been using the player for a year or so, and are now trying to learn more of XPages. But I am not seeing anything (other than the text) when I try the test page.
    In our implementation, we are using a subform to allow users to fill in all the parameters. The file will be attached to that subform, so we use ../$File/myMovie.flv to get back to it.
    In your custom control, I see where the file video.mp4 is defined, and I see it as a file resource. Am I missing something in getting your control to run on my server?

      – sign the app?
      – have the path to the file correct?
      – have the path to the player correct?

      noticed in IE a message that SWFObject was undefined but that disappeared after a refresh :-/

        Yep, the SWFObject error was what I saw.
        Found that the path was the cause of it. Found I had to define the full path to the File and Source for the control.

        Thanks, Patrick. And nicely done!
