EUROPA video player

EUROPA video player is a flash player based on the JW Player from LongTail Video.

 

Description

EUROPA video player provides an easy and flexible way to integrate audio and video files on webpages. It supports playback of any format the Adobe Flash Player can handle (FLV, MP4, MP3, AAC, JPG, PNG and GIF). It also supports RTMP, HTTP and live streaming, various playlists formats, a wide range of settings and an extensive javascript API. Videos in format MPG, AVI, WMV, RM are not supported.

Adobe Flash Player is required to play audio and video files (minimum 9.0.115.0 version).

This is a central tool; you do not have to install the files on your website to use it. The required files to run this tool are hosted on both domains http://ec.europa.eu and http://europa.eu/ under the same directory structure.

Currently DG COMM (Europa and Audiovisual Services) is working on a “Video Player Corporate Project”. This project aims to have one single video player for the whole EC’s website, with a set of functionalities corresponding to the global user needs. The AV portal is equipped with the first version of this corporate player, compatible with non-flash player devices, smartphones and tablets, thanks to the HTML5 video tag. For those cases where neither Flash nor HTML5 is available, a link to the video will be provided.
