Hi,
I just installed the flowplayer plugin for wordpress, but I don't know how to use it.
There are no shortlinks related to it, and I cannot find what kind of shortcode do I have to use.
So, how can I post a video with it?
Thank you.

Assuming you have the plugin installed and it is activated within wordpress you use [FLOWPLAYER=http://yourdomain.com/path/to/media.ext,width,height] replacing with your own settings, this is in the README.txt

It works, thank you, but my video takes a while to load before playing (It's not a large file, 6 mb for a 2 minute video). Is there any way to make that loading faster, or to start playing while loading?

Where can I find the readme.txt? I installed flowplayer from wordpress, so I can't find it.
Thank you

If you want to start playing before buffering a large amount of the media (or the entire thing) you will need to look at media that support playing before the whole file has been downloaded (such as flv and mp4) and ensuring the meta data is at the front of the file (qt-faststart) and you have a good keyframe setting

I have converted the video to mp4. It plays well on my computer, but after uploading and embedding, only the sound plays. Why is that?

This is not project related this is media related, most likely you are using a codec that flash does not support, if using mp4's you need h.264 codec and ensure the moov atom is at the begining of the file, this issue is closed, I can not support your media you will need to research and do this yourself or seek commercial support
