    Yes, it is free. The license is the CCL (Creative Commons License) means you can use it, you can even alter it, as long as you don't imply the original creator endorsed your changes, and you distribute it under the same license. You may NOT use it for commercial sites, meaning you can't use it to make money for yourself.

    Really? "You may NOT use it for commercial sites, meaning you can't use it to make money for yourself." I am going to put ads on my site, is that ok?

    Yes, the ads are generating revenue, not the video player. And you aren't a commercial site. No worries.

    I assume it is loaded through XML pages? You will need to edit those to include the .wmv.

    I don't have a player like this so I am not sure, but if you or Medyman don't know I will dig into it later.

    Firstly, you'll need to convert your Windows Media Vids to .flv. This player (or any flash player, to my knowledge) won't be able to play .wmv files directly.

    To do this, you can use the Flash IDE (post back if you need help with this) or a variety of programs out there (just google .wmv to .flv).

    Secondly...
    The files are added through XML (though RSS, XSPF and ASX are also supported).
    In the unzipped files that came with the media player, you'll find a playlist.xml. Open it with any simple text editor and you'll see it's fairly self explantory to edit. Just make sure that the filepaths are relative to the page that the flash movie is on.


    Lastly...
    The easiest way to customize the player is to use the online wizard as it minimizes errors if you're not used to the FlashVars sytax.

    Go here: http://www.jeroenwijering.com/extras/wizard.html
    I assume by wanting your player to look like the example you showed, you want the thumbnails. You'll find that options under advanced flashvars >> apperance flashvars. "Display thumbs in playlist" is the last option. You'll also need to provide a URL for the thumb in the XML file.

    Ok thanks, I like how the black one is set up. The only thing I want to add to it is add "thumbnails" beside the video's name. How do I do that?

    Please and thank you.
