This plugin hasn’t been tested with the latest 3 major releases of WordPress. It may no longer be maintained or supported and may have compatibility issues when used with more recent versions of WordPress.



wp-flxerPlayer is a filter for WordPress to display any flash content in valid XHTML 1.0 Strict.

This development start basing the php code on the pb-embedFlash of pasber

With admin panel and media & playlist manager!

See the Installation tab for more information about the usage.

*- wp-flxerPlayer is optimized for WordPress 2.5.

This plugin comes with currently 2 ways of displaying your flash content:

  • <object> tag
  • SWFObject (JavaScript)

wp-flxerPlayer primarily supports, but is not limited to…

  • .swf
  • .flv, .mp4, .mp3, .png, .jpg, .gif and .xml playlist
  • YouTube
  • Google Video
  • Revver
  • SevenLoad
  • Vimeo
  • GUBA
  • ClipFish
  • MetaCafe
  • MyVideo
  • Veoh
  • ifilm
  • MySpace Videos
  • Brightcove
  • aniBOOM
  • vSocial
  • GameVideos
  • VideoTube
  • AOL UnCut
  • grouper

Unfortunately,, Garage TV,, dailymotion and Yahoo! do not put the videoID into the browser URL; therefore you have grab the path to the video file from the embedding-HTML-code they offer.

If your favorite video hoster is not listed as supported by this plugin, you still can use it by copying the link to the video out of the embedding code. Please give me a note if a video hoster is missing or not fully supported, thanks.

wp-flxerPlayerwp-flxerPlayer supports the automatic update function integrated in WordPress since version 2.5. To do it by your own, follow this:

  1. Deactivate the plugin. This is important!
  2. Delete the old files and folders.
  3. Install the new version.


To embed flash files into your posts, please insert the URL into following code: [flash URL VALUES]. URL is the full address with heading http://. Possible VALUES are listed beneath.

If you want to embed movies from YouTube, Google Video, etc., simply post the full address of the item’s site.
Example: [flash] or [flash].
Width and height are set to the respective settings of the supported hoster automatically.
You don’t need to cut sth. out of an address or HTML code!

flv/mp4 support just use [flash URL VALUES], the flv/mp4 file is detected automatically. (You have to buy a license to use that player commercially.)

You can also embed media ([flash medium=ID VALUES]) and playlists ([flash playlist=ID VALUES]) from the media manager.
(Attention! Each flashvar overwrites his counterpart in following order: admin panel settings < media & playlist settings < flash tag settings.)

!!! The following documentation of possible values is eased heavily by the admin panel popup (since v1.5) !!!

VALUES can be one or more of these:

  • If you want to override the default values for width and hight, use the following code: w=WIDTH h=HEIGHT. WIDTH and HEIGHT are in pixels as number-only without unit.

  • If you want to override the default value for the class, use the following code: class=CLASS. CLASS is the class to be used. If you don’t specify a class, the default class “embedflash” will be taken.

  • To specify the style for the <object> without defining a class, use the following code: style={STYLE}. STYLE must be valid CSS code. Please ensure that you put it into {} brackets!

  • To manage gallerys, use the following code: [flash FIRSTMOVIEURL title=FIRSTMOVIETITLE gallery={MOVIE1URL MOVIE1TITLE,MOVIE2URL MOVIE2TITLE,}.

  • You can also display a link to the file with a specified text: extern={TEXT|LINK} or extern={TEXT}. TEXT is the text to show as link, LINK will be the target. If no LINK is given, it defaults to URL. Please ensure that you put it into {} brackets!
    Example #1: extern={Go to YouTube} will output: <a href="URL" title="Go to YouTube">Go to YouTube</a>.
    Example #2: extern={Visit the author's website|} will output: <a href="" title="Visit the author's website">Visit the author's website</a>
    If you are embedding a video from a hoster supported by this plugin, you can add a “Watch it at …” link by adding extern=1 instead.

  • If you want to specify additional parameters to the <object> tag, use the following code: o={PARAMETERS}. PARAMETERS can be one ore mutiple valid parameters for the <object> tag except ‘data’, ‘width’, ‘height’, ‘class’ and ‘style’. Please ensure that you put it into {} brackets!
    Example: o={tabindex="2" name="flashmovie"} will be outputted as: <object ... tabindex="2" name="flashmovie" ... />

  • If you want to specify additional <param> tags, use the following code: p={NAME-1;VALUE-1|NAME-2;VALUE-2|...|NAME-N;VALUE-N}. Both NAME and VALUE have to be specified. You can add quite infinite <param> tags by seperating the different couples with the “|” character. Please ensure that you put it into {} bracktes!
    Example: p={menu;false|quality;high} will be outputted as: <param name="menu" value="false" /><param name="quality" value="high" />

  • If loading preview images from YouTube and GameVideos has been disabled by default, you can still use it by adding preview=force. The alt attribute of the image tag is set to “preview image”.
    You can set the width and height by pw= and ph=.

  • To easily overwrite the default mode of embedding your flash content, you can specify mode.
    Examples: mode=0 will use the object tag, mode=1 refers to SWFObject.
