Once you have created and published your video player,

  1. Publish each video player to different folder. The published files structure should be as follows:

    /VideoPlayer1/a4dfvp/
    /VideoPlayer1/videoplayer.htm

    /VideoPlayer2/a4dfvp/
    /VideoPlayer2/videoplayer.htm

  5. Paste the scripts between <!-- Start of A4Desk Flash Video Player --> and <!-- End of A4Desk Flash Video Player -->(which you copied for each video player) to the text area of your site's ".htm" file (e.g. "home.htm"), or to the place you want to display the video players.
  6. Replace the embed code for the two video players. Add the folder name of your video player to the "value" attributes for the following parameters:
