Target release:
As reported on stackoverflow: http://stackoverflow.com/[…]/collective-flowplayer-commercial-version

Following official instructions I tried adding a KEY property in portal_properties/flowplayer_properties and I changed PARAM/SRC with "http://releases.flowplayer.org/[…]/flowplayer.commercial-3.2.4.swf" (c.flowplayer uses 3.2.4).

Looking at the source of the page I can see the properties been passed but the player gets blocked and it shows only a black box.

I switched to 3.0rc3 but nothing changed.
I found that the plugins where breaking everything.
After lot of testing I found a working configuration:

param/src = http://releases.flowplayer.org/[…]/flowplayer.commercial-3.2.7.swf

plugins/controls/url = http://releases.flowplayer.org/[…]/flowplayer.controls-3.2.5.swf

plugins/audio/url = http://releases.flowplayer.org/[…]/flowplayer.audio-3.2.2.swf

and of course you need to add a "key" property with your license's key.

Looking at the changelog of http://pypi.python.org/pypi/collective.flowplayer:

"Update to Flowplayer 3.2.7 and latest plugin versions."

and at /collective.flowplayer-3.0rc3/src/collective/flowplayer/browser/flowplayer/README.txt

it seems that they already are at the newest version, the same I used from flowplayer's repo.

Thanks Jean-Michel for your description.I think there is nothing to fix in flowplayer code, so I've updated the flowplayer README only. Is it fine?

I don't see anything related to the commercial version of flowplayer in the provided README:


Please, could you create a chapter 'How to use commercial flowplayer with Plone' in this README ? It seems there are issue around this, I guess it is just a matter of documentation, so keep it simple like

How do I setup the commercial version ?

Thank you Radim

I committed it now. I don't use commercial version so I copied just info from your post to the README. Feel free to update it.
