I am using JW Player successfully on my website. I was wondering if it is possible to only play audio from an .flv file? The .flv contains audio and video but I want to "hide" the video and only have the audio playing.
In version 4 of the player how do I eliminate the video display part if I only want to use mp3 files from an xml playlist? I looked through the flashvars section and it said something about changing the object section. How do I do that? Do I need Flash CS3? Because I don't have any flash file editor - Cant afford it.
@Ryan - set the flashvar height = 0 or if you need no playlist, set the overall height to 20 px (the height of the controlbar)
from - *http://code.jeroenwijering.com/trac/wiki/FlashVars* bc.. *height *(400): height of the display (not the entire player!) in pixels. you can also try some experiments with the wizard - *http://www.jeroenwijering.com/?page=wizard&example=2*
so you can do this without the use of CS3 - but it is also available as a fully functional 30day trial version...
I have a youtube video I uploaded and I only want the audio to play, not the video to be seen, but rather have an image I want to have up of my son's face as a baby. But I want his voice to be heard only form the video. Can someone help? I am totally stuck as to how to do this on youtube.
I have tried all the things in this post to get rid of the video display, but it doesn't work properly when you have a playlist :(((( If I set the height to 20 with a playlist I just see the bottom of the playlist (I use playlist=bottom). (also the flashvar height=0 does not work)
:((( is there really no option to say display:none? It would make so much sense to have this.
If someone could help me solve this I would really appreciate it.
Unfortunately, not. Since we use the YouTube API, it will pull in the video as well. You could always use the Flow plugin though, an set the position to over, and it will just play the audio while the Flow plugin stays on the screen.
I have the same problem as Ryan. I have a music playlist and I'd like to know how to hide the video player without getting rid of the playlist. I've read andersen's post, but I'm a newb and I have no idea what I have to edit.
In other words, where can we see a full working example of an audio-only player, using a playlist, with a visible control bar and no visible playlist.
I've tried using JW Embed code to alter the height of the controlbar, and it looks really bad. There's a bunch of blackspace around the controller and a Play button that superimposes over everything.
The playlist stylesheet would seem to be the solution, but how do I get it to control the actual player or, in my case, playerS on the page? That's missing in the documentation.
Many thanks if someone could post a working example or some hints.
The playlist plays but the CSS styling doesn't do anything.
