Embed an FLV video in Fronter
Does anyone know how I can get flv videos to embed in fronter pages? I know I can embed using Windows Media Player or the like but I'd like to embed them like a normal FLV.

Not easily, try
<embed src="http://freevideocoding.com/flvplayer.swf?file=https://yourfronterdomain/links/files.phtml/2079398738$625447574$/Resources/Videos/filename.flv&autoStart=false" width="320" height="240" quality="high" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></embed>
A lot of the players need code that's stripped out due to security unless you change U08 Disable stripping unsafe code from files in the resource folders

That worked, it seems.

This is targeted at MK but you might find it useful.
Step 1: Upload your FLV file to a Resource Folder in Fronter. It is probably best to put the file in the same folder as the other images that will be on your page.
Step 2: Right click on the link to the FLV file and select "Copy Shortcut" (Internet Explorer) or "Copy Link Location" (Firefox).
Step 3: Create a new text container on a Fronter page. Click the "Source" button to switch to source code view.
Step 4: Type or copy and paste the following text:
<object width="500" height="375">
<param name="flashvars" value="file=YOUR LINK HERE" />
<param name="movie" value="/mk/links/link.phtml?idesc=1&iid=263221" />
<embed src="/mk/links/link.phtml?idesc=1&iid=263221" width="500" height="375" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" flashvars="file=YOUR LINK HERE" />
Step 5: In place of YOUR LINK HERE paste the text copied in step 2. Be sure not to remove the " marks. Once done, click the Save button. You may need to experiment with different height and width values depending on your page layout. Note: The YOUR LINK HERE and height and width all appear twice in the above code.
Your FLV file is now embedded onto your Fronter page. It is recommended that you put any further explanatory text into separate text containers, so there is nothing else in the container with the clip.

That doesn't appear to work on the Somerset site. My guess would be that it is using something on the MK site which we don't have permission to.

/mk/links/link.phtml?idesc=1&iid=263221 will be the flash player swf file
