I've been scouring the forums for an answer to this, but with no luck.
I've created multiple pages with Flash video embedded into each of them. I'm using the SWF Tools input filter to embed the FLV file with the following code:
SWF tools generates a JW player on the page and the video plays fine.
However I've been trying to add a thumbnail to the JW player via FlashVars, so I tried this code listed in a previous discussion.
[swf flashvars="image=path/file.jpg" file="http://mysite.com/episodes/video.flv"]
it won't pass the location of the thumbnail image to the player, I still get a black screen before I hit play
I cannot use Flash Node module, it would require me to re-create every video page, and I would have to move hundreds of comments to the new node.
What's the easiest way to generate a thumbnail poster image to display in the JW player using swf tools?
