Hi, I'm very new to using this player. I'm trying to set up an XML player and was using this RSS feed:

<rss version="2.0" xmlns:jwplayer=" developer.longtailvideo.com/ ">
<channel>
<title>Playlist with HTTP Pseudostreaming</title>

<item>
<title>Big Buck Bunny</title>
<description>Big Buck Bunny is a short animated film by the Blender Institute,
part of the Blender Foundation.</description>
<enclosure url=" myserver.com/botr/bbb.mp4 " type="video/mp4" length="3192846" />

<jwplayer:provider>http</jwplayer:provider>
<jwplayer:http.startparam>apstart</jwplayer:http.startparam>

</item>
</channel>

</rss>


...as an example, because I want to get pseudostreaming working.

I also want thumbnail images for each video in my playlist. However, when I've tried putting in:

<media:thumbnail url=" www.crimescene.com/currentcase/images/stories/hidden/jason.finnegan.1987.free.jpg " />

...the player does not load.

Does anyone know what I can do include thumbnail images?

Thank you!

Thanks a lot for the reply! Unfortunately, I tried replacing one of my videos with that and got Error #1083 when I tried to load the player. I'm not sure what's causing this...

Oops! Tried it again (correctly this time) and the player did, indeed, come up. However, the image thumbnail still was not there and there was a series of numbers next to the video's title.

I can! It's actually the same link I sent regarding our other issue (with no video playback, which you solved). I am trying to get autogenerate working to set up overnight, which is why I'd been using it for that issue. If you look at the same link now, though, you'll see that I've gone back to the RSS link, because I ultimately want to be doing this with an XML playlist.

Tried again today. Looks like I'd had some spacing wrong, initially. I corrected that and put the first video in my playlist in as you illustrated and it was working great! However, once I formatted the remainder of the videos that way, I encountered problems again. Now I'm not having any playback - instead, I'm getting Error #1085. I've tried a few things to fix it, but no luck so far.

Hello,

Sorry for the delay but happy that you find the answer, I have a look on your xml file and it seems ok,

just about the pseudo streaming did your server support this ? if not the http params are not necessary
<jwplayer:provider>http</jwplayer:provider>
<jwplayer:http.startparam>apstart</jwplayer:http.startparam>

Sorry for MY delay this time! I haven't gotten pseudo streaming to work yet. I do need to check if our server supports it; I hadn't realized that might be an issue, so I'll inquire. Thank you again!
