FAQ

Everything you always wanted to know about Flowplayer’s pricing but couldn’t be bothered to find the support email address.

What is video streaming?

Video streaming is the act of delivering reliable and uninterrupted data stream for the video player. HLS streaming refers to quality switching where the video file is split into multiple segments of variying quality.

What is video encoding?

Video encoding is the art of transforming a video file to a format that works on the web. For example, a .mov file is transformed into multiple HLS-segment files for quality-switching support.

Can I use my style and branding?

Yes. All videos served from our platform are styleable with custom branding. If you want to self-host the videos then a player license is needed. You can get one from your account.

Should I edit the video before uploading?

Absolutely. Just strip out the boring parts! These are typically at the beginning and end of the video. You cannot change the length of the video after uploading.

You may also want to change the aspect ratio of the clip. Sometimes you might want a vertical video, which plays nicely on mobile.

Do you keep the original video?

Yes. The original videos are kept safe so we can re-encode them later, possibly with different settings.

Can I download the results?

Yes. All the full- length versions (original and encoded) can be downloaded from the Flowplayer UI. Individual HLS segments are not available.

Do you have bigger plans?

Yes. We serve customers with massive streaming needs. Please tell us what you need and we are happy to help you.

Can I switch plans?

Sure. You can always switch between the plans on this page. We will adjust your bill automatically.

Can I cancel?

Yes. Go to your account and hit the cancel button.

Which cards do you accept?

We accept payments from VISA, MasterCard, VISA Debit and American Express.

When am I charged?

Your plan will be charged at the beginning of each billing period. Additional streaming costs (ie when the included volume is exceeded before the end of a billing period) will be charged immediatley once they reach 50 EUR, or together with the next recurring bill.

When you upgrade a trial to a paid subscription or a trial ends without cancellation, the charge will be done at that time.

Do I need to pay taxes?

All prices are net. EU residents will be charged VAT (according to the VAT rate of their country); to avoid VAT please supply a valid VAT ID when purchasing. VAT will always be applied to purchases from Sweden.

Is the player included in the video platform?

The platform includes an unbranded version of Flowplayer 7.

How much will it cost if I go over my plan limits?

Below you can see a table with the detailed information about what is included in the plans and overage pricing. All numbers are monthly.

All plans have a 14-day free trial period. During this period 10 GB of streaming and 80 output minutes of encoding is allowed.

Player FAQ

Player answers

When should I pick the player-only option?

Sometimes you want to host the videos on your own servers. In this scenario, you need to take care of video encoding and global streaming yourself.

How can I get rid of the Flowplayer logo?

You can get rid of the Flowplayer branding by purchasing a commercial version of the player on this page. After the purchase you can create a license key for your domain to remove the Flowplayer logo and (optionally) configure your own logo and context menu.

This product key is tied to the domain name shown in the browser’s location bar and, in the case of iFrames, when the frame is viewed in its own window.

Key validation takes place completely within the player, and our servers are not connected at any time.

How do I setup my logo and menu?

By providing a valid product key, logo and menu within the configuration and using the commercial player files.

Where is my product key?

After purchasing, product keys are managed on your account page. You can enter the domain name of your choice to generate the key.

How long is a license valid?

Flowplayer licenses are yours forever, they do not expire, and the player does not phone home for license checks; the validation happens inside the player. Licenses include bugfixes and minor feature updates within the purchased major revision (6.x , 7.x). Upgrades to the next major version incur a fee.

Refund of player purchase

If the player product does not work for you for technical reasons, we can provide a refund within 14 days after purchase. Please contact us and explain the situation. We recommend to test your scenario with the free player first.

No refund is possible once you created a license key.

Can I change the domain name?

A generated key cannot be changed. A new domain name requiers a new license for that domain.

Can I resell product keys?

You cannot split licenses across accounts. If you purchase a license for a client of yours and plan to grant the client control over his license at a later stage, you must create a separate account for this license. To integrate the player into your product and resell / give away license keys, consider an OEM agreement available through the Enterprise license.

Can I integrate the player in my own commercial product?

You cannot use the standard 1 or 5 domain licenses to OEM the player into your product. OEM license is only available thorugh the Enterprise plan.

How about embedded players?

The player can be embedded on an unlimited number of foreign domains, with your own branding applied.

Can I test the commercial player on a development domain?

License keys only work on the domain name you entered when generating the key. For staging/development please use a (protected) subdomain. For local development, the commercial download package contains a sample index.html page with valid product keys for localhost and 127.0.0.1. You can also fake the domain name on your /etc/hosts file.

Are subdomains included?

To use the commercial player on one domain such as mydomain.com you need a single-domain license. All subdomains such as www.mydomain.com or my.media.mydomain.com are included.
