It couldn't be simpler


1. Upload

No difficult options to navigate – just a few simple checkboxes. When you upload a video to Flowplayer Drive, all encoding is done for you automatically.

2. We do the (slicing) work

Flowplayer performs an automated analysis of your video, making all the encoding choices on your behalf. This way, you can rest assured that it will look great across all platforms and browsers.

3. Copy and paste

Just add the embed code to your site, after deciding whether to present your content as a normal video, as an overlay, or in the background.

4. Play

The end result contains all the latest benefits of our player. For example, we provide automatic quality switching for everyone. It's not just for the big enterprises any more.

Global delivery

No matter where you're located, Flowplayer’s high-availability platform will stream your content from a nearby server to ensure the optimal speed. The content is delivered with the help of edge servers, geographically distributed to achieve efficient delivery to every corner of the internet.

Video analytics

How long do viewers spend watching your videos? At what point do they lose interest or tune out and go elsewhere?

Displaying video views for the past 7 days

Flowplayer's analytics tools can display viewer amounts across any given timeframe – ideal for monitoring traffic peaks. View traffic across your entire account, spot trends, and observe the big picture.

Manage all your videos.

Hosting on the Flowplayer platform means having every feature you could need at your fingertips. Efficient management of all your videos is a breeze – leave the technical detail to us and concentrate on content strategy.
