Flowplayer 6 Video Player

Embed video file in WordPress with Flowplayer 6 style. Embed self-hosted, external, HTML5 compatible responsive video in post/page with flowplayer.

  • Embed webm videos
  • Embed videos which can be viewed from a mobile or tablet device
  • Video playback support for iOS (ipad, iphone) and android devices
  • Embed HTML5 videos which are playable across all major browsers

  • Embed videos using three different skins
  • Automatically calculate the height of the video based on its width
  • Flexible resizing of videos (true responsiveness)
  • Embed videos with various aspect ratios (16:9, 4:3)


In order to embed a video, create a new post/page and use the following shortcode:

[flowplayer src=""]

here, src is the actual source of your mp4 video file.

In addition to the source mp4 video file, you can also specify a webm video file. This step is optional since mp4 video is supported by almost all major browsers.

[flowplayer src="" webm=""]

Poster Image

If you want to show an image as placeholder before the video plays, you can specify it in the "poster" parameter:

[flowplayer src="" poster=""]

Autoplay Video

If you want a particular video to start playing when the page loads you can set the "autoplay" option to "true":

[flowplayer src="" autoplay="true"]

Player Size

By default, the player takes up the full width of the content area. You can easily control the size by specifying a width for it:

[flowplayer src="" width="500"]

The height will be automatically determined based on the ratio (please see the "Control Player Ratio section" for details).

Player Ratio

The player ratio is set to "0.417" by default. But you can override it by specifying a different ratio in the shortcode:

[flowplayer src="" ratio="0.345"]

Loop Video

If you want a particular video to start playing again when it ends you can set the "loop" option to "true":

[flowplayer src="" loop="true"]
