Remove controls from FLV (Flowplayer)

Posted on 2012-03-30

Hi, I've been looking at this:

and can't figure out how to remove the controls here:

I know I need to use this: plugins {
    controls: null

I tried adding a style to the page, and tried adding it to the flowplayer code, but I must be tired because I can't make it work. Help?

Their documentation says use 'all: false'. Did you try it?

No, I didn't try that. Where do I put the styling? I'll upload the code snippet.

Sorry, didn't get the code snippet quite right, here it is again:

<script type="text/javascript" src="/tools/flowplayer/flowplayer-3.1.2.min.js"></script>

<script type="text/javascript">

document.writeln('<p><a style="display:block;width:960px;height:300px;" id="player" href="/siteimages/dmo/ocean.flv"></a></p>');
<script type="text/javascript"> 

document.writeln('<p><a style="display:block;width:960px;height:300px;" id="player" href="/siteimages/dmo/ocean.flv"></a></p>'); 

flowplayer("player", "/tools/flowplayer/flowplayer-3.1.2.swf"); 

Open in new window

I just downloaded the file from the site and messed with it.

If you look at the index.html file, there is this block of code which probably is what you have in line 5 of above code.
	flowplayer("player", "../flowplayer-3.2.8.swf");

Open in new window

I simply changed it to this and I don't see the controls no more.
	flowplayer("player", "../flowplayer-3.2.8.swf", { plugins: { controls: null } });

Open in new window

See if this works for you.
