CommonSpot Elements

Video File Player

Use this element to embed a video file player in a Commonspot page. The element has one required script parameter - "link" - which is the full URL path to the file.  In the following example, we've included the link to a Flash video file that was uploaded to a Commonspot site.

There are two optional parameters for this element; "width" and "height".  The default settings for the player dimensions are 400 x 330.  You might want to change the width settings if you're including this element in the right column of a page - in that case, a width setting of "160" would be appropriate, or set the width to 590 if the right column is not displayed.
