I know this is not the right place to raise this question. But I am
left with no option because I have done googling but could not found
the solution that resolve my problem. When i use flowplayerlight or
flowplayerdark it does play the video. But i have to show the
thumbnail as well that's why i go with the flowplayerLP. But when i
use flowplayerLP neither it plays video nor it show thumbnail.
My code is like this



  <!-- some minimal styling, can be removed -->
<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" href="/stylesheet/common.css"/>


 <%  if not @videos.empty?  %>
    <%  video = @videos[0] %>
    <% # video_file_name = VIDEO_LOCATION + "video_" + video.id.to_s +
".flv"
        if params[:id]
         ind=params[:id].to_i - 1.to_i
        end
        if ind
        video_file_name = "#{@videos[ind].id}.flv"
        else
        video_file_name = "#{@videos[0].id}.flv"
        end
         # + video.id.to_s + ".flv"
     %>



    <input type="hidden" name="video_file_name" id="video_file_name"
value="<%= video_file_name %>" >
<% end %>

<div id="example"></div>
 <hr>
 <script>




   /*
    use flashembed to place flowplayer into HTML element
    whose id is "example" (below this script tag)
   */
  var api=flashembed("example",

    /*

    {
      src:'/swf/FlowPlayerLP.swf',

      width: 400,
      height: 290,


          thumbs: [
  { thumbNail:  'test1.jpg', time: 10 },

],

// Location of the thumbnail files

    },

    /*
