AMP support

How to embed flowplayer videos with AMP

Introduction

AMP is a component library that enables rapid website development.

Flowplayer offers support for AMP through the <amp-video-iframe> component.

You can read more on AMP from its homepage and about <amp-video-iframe> from its documentation.

Usage

All that is needed is to include a <amp-video-iframe> component on your page with the src pointing to https://amp.flowplayer.com. The poster property is also required, as per the documentation above.

We have added a few Flowplayer specific configuration properties:

  • data-param-src - The source video. It should be in the format <player_id>/<media_id> or <media_id> if you are embedding a video from the Flowplayer platform. For self hosted videos you need to provide the URL to the video as a string. Example: https://mycdn.com/myvideo.mp4.
  • data-param-token - The flowplayer token obtained from our UI

Example

Below you can find the full source of a functioning player using AMP:
