videoplayer posterurl support in Flash player


My first post here and have to say, really like the player.

I'd like to request the Flash video player supports posterurl ( in the same way the html5 player does.

For our usecase, we're using the html5 as a fall back, with Flash being the primary player. The Posterurl is really useful to provide a custom image that can be changed/updated without updating/re-encoding the video. Example, based on analytics we could serve different still images or perform A/B testing or update the image based on marketing campaigns. Our video is goes through a transcoding process via a thirdparty service with costs involved. Updating would also invalidate CDN caching. We'd like to avoid paying for transcoding just to change the still image before a user hits play.


If i wasn't clear, please let me know. Thanks in advance!!

Couldn't you simply add image layer over the video. When video played remove this layer and you have Flash/HTML5 solution. Or I missed your point?

For Flash - would work since you can have the video autoplay when you load the video after hiding the image. Would not use the posterurl at all in this case.
But, when using the HTML5 on iOS, autoplay is not work and its recommended to use the posterurl

So, we would need to have wrapper logic to have it work one way on desktop and another way on mobile with updates if the iOS bugs are fixed. Would be cleaner and less maintenance if the player supposed the posterurl in flash as well so the API is the same.

We can add flash specific logic, and read the same posterurl property but then each person wanting the same behavior would be implementing it themselves. I was more wondering if it the posterurl could be supported in flash the same way its supported in html5 without ading custom code, for api consistency.

I agree a direct support would be sense of course - and that's already on my list.

Best regards,
