Message Overlays plugin

This plugin allows you to send overlay messages to the player.


Include the plugin next to the core player:

<script src="//"></script>
<script src="//"></script>


Messages are displayed by emitting the message:show event to the player instance.

element description
message string message to be displayed. The message is dismissed after 3 seconds.
sticky boolean message will remain visible for full player life cycle. Default: false
timeout integer time, in milliseconds, the message will stay visible before fading out, unless sticky: true is set. Default: 3000

The event name message:show is exposed at

Sample code

This sample shows "Hello there!" and sets the timeout to 5 seconds (sticky: false is set for demonstration purposes only).

var player = flowplayer('#container', {
  src: '//'

player.emit(, { message: "Hello there!", sticky: false, timeout: 5000})


An example implementation would be the the live stream reconnect script.
