The Flow Player allows you to view your material in a browser. Any media you upload to your Flow Library will trigger an ingest workflow which creates web-playable proxy versions of your media. So the player will render a proxy version of your media, not the original.
Note: If you upload material via Edge, make sure to also transfer a web-proxy version, otherwise the ingest workflow will not run and your material won’t be playable in the browser. Also, if you play your material in Edge (instead of the browser), you can also play back the original material (instead of the web-proxy version).
The centered buttons control the core player functionality:
The left side of the control bar displays the current playhead position. The buttons on its left and right allow stepping though the video frame by frame. The TC button toggles a large timecode overlay on your video canvas.
The right side of the control bar contains the following controls:
|Toggle fullscreen playout.|
|Select playback quality.
In Flow you will be able to choose between SD and HD (720p) resolution.
In Edge you will be able to choose between RAW (your original file) and PROXY (web proxy) versions.
|Change playback volume|
|Toggle back-to-back playout mode. This applies to the Details View of a clip. When multiple clips have been selected, the player will move on to the next clip if the previous clip finishes playing.|
