The WWD flash video player can be used on your website to play multiple FLV files. The key feature of this player is its scrollable thumbnail playlist. Populate the player by editing a simple XML file in which you specify for each video a headline, FLV file name, and thumbnail image file name.

New Features in version 2.0 include:

Hyperlinks and other basic html tags can be applied to the video descriptions.
Resizable: player has been rebuilt so that it can be used at any size.


Other Features include:

Video playlist displayed as a scrollable row of thumbnail images.
Customizable interface - set text color, frame color, button color, background image.
Compact design - displays video and playlist in a relatively small space.
Automatically resizes videos to fit in video display while maintaining proportions.
Free

This is a great script. Installation was as easy as could be and very clear instructions. I do have a couple questions for customization.

I have a lot of videos and I would like to use different video pages for different categories of videos but all pages within the same directory. Can I identify different xml files so that each video page has a different play list, or is it necessary to place them in their own directory? You can see the first of many video pages I plan on setting up here: http://www.warriorpages.com/videos/Qigong/index.html

As for suggestions, I'm so excited by what I've already found, that I can't think of anything more I'd want (I'm sure that will change). One suggestion I might have for other users is if you want to center the video player on your page, you will probably need to set the size on the div tag so that the background lines up behind the player. You can also use a table and set the player background as the table backgroud, but again you'll have to set the size for everything to line up.

Thanks again!
