SmoothFlow Deployment : Deploying the SmoothFlow Reference Client Player

Deploying the SmoothFlow Reference Client Player
A binary SmoothFlow client player is provided to you as a reference and/or for testing or evaluation purposes. This section details how to install the Juniper Networks Smoothflow Player for testing purposes onto your Web page.
Note! Adobe Flash Player versions 9 and above are supported.
The SmoothFlow_ReferencePlayer.zip file contains everything you need to get started. Contact Juniper Networks Customer Support (see “Requesting Technical Support” on page 32) to obtain the zip, and unpack it to your Web server.
You work with the following files retrieved from the zip:
fPlayerIn.swf—This is the Adobe SWF (shockwave flash) file with SmoothFlow playback functionality that must be embedded in your browser page.
AC_RunActiveContent.js—This file is used to dynamically generate JavaScript-based active content embedding tags for the browser to display your Flash movie. This file contains functions that embed your active content based on the parameters it receives from the main.html page.
fPlayerInternal.html—This is the file that you request via your portal server to view the sample SmoothFlow content. Be sure to set base_uri and video_name tags correctly.
crossdomain.xml—Flash uses this file to control the cross-domain resource-access policy, for both HTTP and socket connections. Use it to control which resources a Flash application can access, when that application did not originate in the domain of the site. The crossdomain.xml file must be hosted and delivered via Media Flow Controller.
Follow these steps to deploy the SmoothFlow Client player.
1.
Copy fPlayerIn.swf, AC_RunActiveContent.js, fPlayerInternal.html, and crossdomain.xml from the zip to the same directory in the doc root of your Web server.
2.
Modify the HTML below (source for fPlayerInternal.html). Reset the underlined references as needed. Table 37 gives a brief explanation for the configurable parameters and is followed by an example file (Example fPlayerInternal.html).
3.
Use the URI for the player as follows. For example, if the HTML page in which you have embedded the player is fPlayerInternal.html, then any anchor links to that page should be of the form:
www.somedomain.com/fPlayerInternal.html
 
The rest of the URI which gives the logical path and video name sans any extensions etc. For example, if the video’s full URI is
Example fPlayerInternal.html
