Better To Use FlowPlayer or just embedd .swf Videos To Your site?

9 replies
I'm making video tutorials for a product and was just wondering, should I be using flow player for the sales video and all of the video training content on the inside, or is simply embedding a .swf video a good idea?

Thanks.

        Using a player like flow player in conjunction with an amazon s3 account I think is the best method. I do think there are better and cheaper alternatives to flow player though. Check out flash den - there are plenty of good players for less than $20.

            Unless i'm mistaken they watermark the free one which looks pretty unprofessional in my opinion.

              Right, I would gladly pay $12 for a player that doesn't advertise itself on my site and in fact did. A small price to pay not to brand someone else.
