Flayr Player for FlatPress

Update: Since Flash is about to become obsolete, I created the FlatPress plugin "Audio and video player" which uses HTML standards instead of Flash. I highly recommend to use the new plugin for playing media files in FlatPress.

Flayr is a (discontinued, but well-working) free Flash-based video player. Flayr can play a bunch of different video formats including FLV, F4V, and MP4 (including H.264). This plugin adds Flayr to FlatPress 1.0; the BBcode syntax is extended by a "flayr" tag.
Flayr is licensed under CC-by-nd; the FlatPress plugin around under GPL.
