Re: player for website

Players don't run on the website, they run on the 'agent' (client browser) or natively in the client OS (like iOS, Linux, Mac OS, Windows). But they might be downloaded run-time from your website.

You don't expect to find somebody here who can make it and integrate it in your website for less than $750, I hope?

Hey thanks for replying bro...I was just hoping to get a name of a web video player similar to flowplayer but comes with slow mo and zoom ....That way I can just make them integrate the player into the website....As myweb builders are claiming there are no such web players available in the market and they would have to build one from scratch for me....The type of player I was looking for

Just for comparison.

A company I have connection to had to make a player for their product and the web player was to play the files their hardware created. 500,000 dollars later they had their plug-in. 750 is a bargain.

Can you consider HTML5 and learn about it's video support?

I apologize buddy I am not very well acquainted with the HTML5 or anything even remotely complex....So to your knowledge, are there any ready mate for sale video player with slow mo available in the market?

It took me 20 minutes to create my first HTML5 player.
by R. Proffitt Forum moderator / December 18, 2012 6:12 AM PST

There are plenty of web pages on making yours too and why would I need any ready made thing when it's free, out there, plenty of examples and just a little more than HTML code?

I can't write what I thought about the cost of that plugin versus moving to today's standards.

I understand
by Youonlyliveone / December 18, 2012 7:23 AM PST

But I am not remotety tech savy nor do I have any knowledge about web building...which is why I am stuck in this kanandra ...Working with the builders I feel like I'm deaf and my doc is trying to explain to me the reason behind my prostate surgery....Which is why I would rather just buy one and I looked for them but could only find one http://slomoplayer.com/slomoplayer/slomoplayer_download.html....this costs around 20 bucks so that would save me $730 but I was hoping you guys might be aware of any other...That is why I provided the link in the earier post, because I thought one of you guys could do some kind of magic and ascertain the name of the video player from the link to the website provided

And I bet it can be shorter. I'm a little concerned here. That is, if you run a web site, how can you avoid a little HTML?

Sort of like gardening and never getting your hands dirty?

Play, Pause, Mute along with the Slow-Mo and Time Lapse speed control.

No external plugins were used. If your web authors can't do what I did in 20 minutes you may want to ask them to catch up a little.

I'd expect your entry level web author to take a day. I have an advantage that I've been programming for decades and know I have to keep learning. When we needed video playback I was there to kick the web author into gear.

Not helping

All I want is the name of ready video player,mate...It is like I am asking you for the name of a good dentist for a canal root and you are telling me how to to do it myself...

It's worse than that.

There are too many out there but you may have requirements on price and ease of use that I can't fulfill.

In this case since the simple player I updated to give you slow-motion as an example of how no plugin is required tells me your web author is who you need to find this.

750 bucks seems cheap to me given my experiences with such over the years. I shared the cost of the player we had developed and later how we moved to something a bit more native and EASY.

This is not dentistry. It's HTML. I don't want to upset you and this is now my answer. Pay the price, get it done.

No problem man, I appreciate the honesty,it is the least I can ask

http://slomoplayer.com/ They are selling this one for around 20 bucks...What do you reckon?

And that still requires more HTML than I use.

Doesn't seem any easier or harder to me. And I'd be out 20 bucks.
