JW Player 5 Video Code Generator

This code generator creates the embed code for use with the LongTail Video JW Player 5. I highly recommend purchasing this player as it supports with Flash and HTML 5. LongTail Video has a setup wizard here. The LongTail wizard is more complete. This generator is pretty simple. I like to add extra things like a download link for the video file.

NOTE: You need to have this code in your HTML <head> section:

<script type='text/javascript' src='jwplayer.js'></script>

I added a few CSS ID's to help you style your page. Put this in your <head> section:

  <style>
    #vid-player {margin: 15px 0 50px;}  /* Overall container */
    #vid-title {padding: 10px; font-size: 20pt;font-weight:bold;}  /* Video title */
    #vid-download {padding: 10px; font-size: 13pt;}  /* The download text */
    #vid-download a {background-color:#ffff66;}  /* The download anchor tag */
    #vid-extra a, #vid-extra{font-size: 13pt; padding: 5px;}  /* Extra text CSS */
  </style>
