Compiling a Flowplayer Plugin on Mac OS X

For some reason it took me a while to figure out how to compile a flash plugin for Flowplayer. Here were the steps that I took to finally get it working:

  1. Install Ant. Instructions for this can be found here
  2. Download Adobe Flex 3 SDK. You can download this here.
  3. Unzip the Flex 3 SDK that you just downloaded.
    % unzip
  4. Download the Flowplayer development kit. The latest version of the development kit can be found here.
  5. Unzip the Flowplayer development kit.
    % upzip
  6. Edit the file in the Flowplayer development kit. Specifically edit the line that says:
  7. flex3dir=/Users/api/flex3sdk

    to point to the location to which you unzipped the Flex 3 SDK. After editing my file looks like this:

  8. Navigate to the example plugin that is contained within the Flowplayer development kit. For me this is located here:
  9. Finally, type:
    % ant

    The output should look like this:

    Buildfile: build.xml
         [echo] ++ flowplayer.helloworld.swf +++
         [echo] checking if flowplayer.helloworld.swf is uptodate
         [echo] main up-to-date: ${uptodate.main}
        [unzip] Expanding: /Users/anil/env/flowplayer.devkit/flowplayer.swc into 
         [exec] Loading configuration file 
         [exec] /Users/anil/env/flowplayer.devkit/example/build
    /flowplayer.helloworld.swf (1304 bytes)
         [copy] Copying 1 file to /Users/anil/env/flowplayer.devkit/example/build
    Total time: 3 seconds

Congratulations! You have compiled a flash plugin for Flowplayer!
