1. Download Moyea web player (it is free), launch it in your PC. Moyea web player pro is a quick and easy solution for making a flash video player for your website.

2. Input flash videos into Moyea Web Player. If your video is not FLV, you can use the four converters that recommended in Encoder tab to convert the video file to FLV or MP4, MOV, 3GP, 3G2 with H.264 codec that can be supported by Adobe Flash Player.

3. Click “Template” menu>>Options>>Playback settings, here uncheck “Pause at first frame”.

4. Customize the skin of the flash video player (optional).

5. Click "Publish" button to generate a web FLV player and other related files (Note: if you want to get a separate playlist file, please check "Out File")

6. Upload all the published files except the index.html file, to the same folder of your web server.

7. Embed the generated player in your webpage with the embed code below(Add JavaScript in blogger (blogspot) post):
<script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>
<div id="flashcontent">Player will show here</div>
<script type="text/javascript">
var so = new SWFObject('mwplayer.swf','player','500','450','9');

Note: 1. mwplayer.swf is the actual flash video player. If it resides in another directory, then point to it with a relative path (e.g. video/mwplayer.swf) or an absolute path (e.g. ).

8. The FLV player will appear on your website and the FLV can auto play when the page starts to load.

  1. The auto play setting can also be embedded in the SWF file and that is the reason you can't over-ride it with the code in the HTML. I always embed either an auto play or stop depending on what I need for the video.
