Flv jukebox..? How to make the xml playlist?

Hi All,

Anyone done a flv player like the one here?

http://www.jeroenwijering.com/?item=JW_FLV_Media_Player

Specifically how it has the videos off to the side that you can scroll thru.. THe only thing I need help with is the xml playlist... There appear to be tons of free generators on the PC side but none for mac. Does anyone have a working xml playlist that they can send to me just to I can see how it's formatted? Please PM me or add the code to your reply if you're ok with that..

Thanks,
Scott

To get the play list to the right you need to make the player in the embed or SWF code wider than the video resolution.

Example code for a play list is as follows:

<playlist version="1" xmlns="http://xspf.org/ns/0/">
<trackList>

<track>

</track>

<track>
<title>Exercise 2</title>
<creator>Josh Chesarek</creator>
<location>http://www.simplethoughtproductions.com/flv.flv</location>
</track>


</tracklist>
</playlist>

I recomend playing here:

Quick question about the code you added...doesn't it need the main header code? If I copy and paste what you have there into a blank text doc and change the ext to xml it needs the code at the top of the doc to denote it's xml doesn't it..?

Like this?

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

If you can, can you copy all the text in the document and post it so I am sure to build this correctly?

Also the code you have there has problems at the end of each flv line... you have multiple flvs where I think you just want one..?

Also, yes, I've been to the wizard there and I'm fine with all that, I just need the xml playlist and the preview pics of each video for the player like he has on the page I linked. The wizard apparently doesn't create a playlist...

I just found his playlist..

I think to be official and compliant to the spec you do need to add in all the extra code. The JW FLV player how ever will play fine using the above code. More Examples below.

The files names were random so put what ever you want your files to be there. Your file might be called: amazingmovie.flv so put that instread of flv1.flv

Here is a link to an XML that I currently use with this player.

(Right Click Save as)

The same XML being used:
