NAME Apache2::EmbedFLV - Embed FLV videos into a templated web interface using Flowplayer. SYNOPSIS On your Apache configuration file: <Files ~ "\.flv$"> SetHandler modperl PerlResponseHandler Apache2::EmbedFLV </Files> If you want to restrict only a certain directory to serve FLVs using "Apache2::EmbedFLV", you can wrap the "Files" declaration on a "Directory" block. For more information, take a look at excellent Apache2's documentation. By default, you have to have "/flowplayer.swf" and "/flowplayer.controls.swf" available on your webserver. Both SWFs are provided on the GPL distribution of Flowplayer. You can "alias" them with something like: Alias /flowplayer.swf /home/web/flowplayer-3.0.3.swf Alias /flowplayer.controls.swf /home/web/flowplayer.controls.swf That's it. Just go to any FLV video within your web server. With that setup, "Apache2::EmbedFLV" will use a default template. TEMPLATING Take a look at the default template located at example/template.tt. That is not the real file used by this module but it's a verbatim copy. The file is placed there just as an example so you can make your own template without too much internal poking. Once you have your own template, just "PerlSetVar" it to the handler: <Files ~ "\.flv$"> SetHandler modperl PerlSetVar template /path/to/my/template.tt PerlResponseHandler Apache2::EmbedFLV </Files> In order to specify a different path than "/flowplayer.swf" for Flowplayer, just "PerlSetVar flowplayer" (remember to accompany the controls SWF): <Files ~ "\.flv$"> SetHandler modperl PerlSetVar template /path/to/my/template.tt # you would have to have http://yourserver.com/somewhere/flowplayer.swf: PerlSetVar flowplayer /somewhere/flowplayer.swf # or... PerlSetVar flowplayer http://my.other.server/rocks/flowplayer.swf PerlResponseHandler Apache2::EmbedFLV </Files> I believe it's pretty obvious that the templating system used and required is Template::Toolkit. Wherever you want to embed the video within, just call: "[% video %]". DESCRIPTION "Apache2::EmbledFLV" has been already described on the previous section :-) However... "Apache2::EmbedFLV" enables Apache to show FLV videos using Flowplayer. This will ease any deployment of FLV video galleries you'd need to do since you could just put the FLVs on an Apache accessible location, and they will be presented on a proper way to your final user.
