    You need a flash (SWF) player that streams FVL off the internets. You can put it in the qwikpost directory. Then you need to create a media of .flv (look at .mp3 for guidance) have the src point to #{qwikpost}/yourplayer.swf. There is already and corresponding embed type (you could also use this for mpeg or whatever). Check the player doc how you put the file to stream in the flashvars, etc.

    ATM QwikPost work only with the default text formatter. It also requires a text link not an anchor first, so it should be trivial to patch Attachments to do that.

    If you want further help let me know.

    grep is your friend.

  • oh you'll need to fire up Ye Ole String Formatter. You can either monkey patch Attachments or create a extension that uses their delegates.

    sorry slow, I should use quickpost addon, this can merge from attachements file of flv into embed?? wrong url?? you mean ??
  • You use Qwikpost, plus an embeddable flash media player to create a qp media. Then you need to patch Attachments so it passes through the string filter in order for the links to be detected. You can also do this as another extension so you don’t have to touch the code of Attachments. First create the media you can test it by posting links to flv files.
