How to embed and customize FLV URL and other Videos on WordPress Page and Post (WP Version 3.x)
(Note : By doing this, I expected you have an internet connection and your own webhost or webserver on your localhost)
Embedding .FLV Videos on WordPress Page and Post (prior to version 3.5) is an easy task. You just need some plugins to be able to function your embed flv or any other videos. Luckily, I found Stream Video Player which works well on my website. Follow the steps/procedure below:
There are two ways you can install Stream Video Player:
1. Login to your WordPress Administrator Account, to your Dashboard, go to Plugins then click Add New.
2. Search for the term “Stream Video Player”. You may see it on the first results, and then install it. (Note: If you do this, skip process 3 – 5)
3. The other way is to download the stream video player from the wordpress.org extend plugins website. (click here on go forth the Stream Video Player – WordPress.org Plugins)
4. Download and unzip the current version of the Stream Video Player plugin.
5. Upload the entire “stream-video-player” directory to your ‘/wp-content/plugins/’ directory.
(*Upload can be done via localhost or if you have web host)
6. Activate the plugin through the ‘Plugins’ menu in WordPress.
7. Copy the crossdomain.xml found on the stream-video-player directory to your site root.
For example: http://mywebsite.com/crossdomain.xml (this will ensure it will share/show the video player)

Note: If the player doesn’t start or show, download the SWF files (click here) and put them on the plugin directory
For example: http://mywebsite.com/wp-content/plugins/stream-video-player
That’s it. Hopefully this helps you out 🙂
