What is FLO Player?
FLO Player is a Chrome extension created explicitly for Flinders University Online (FLO) to replace its standard flash player with a more efficient HTML5 video player. It was designed to minimize streaming interruptions and allow users to change the playback speed of videos. This extension provides a seamless streaming experience, especially for users with unstable internet connections. It remarkably reduces buffering times and prevents unexpected player crashes. A potential side-effect of the extension is non-functionality with videos posted from different academic years.

Summary

I built this extension in an effort to alleviate a frustration I had, and now its available for everyone!

FLO Player code exchanges the default flash player with an HTML5 video player, preventing disruptions in streaming and allowing for alterations of playback speed. If your internet connection isn't the best, this extension was built for you! This will alleviate the irritating buffering times you experience and stops the player from crashing unexpectedly.

Have a try for yourself and feel free to send me feedback via email or in person, I can be found in the Medical center and along South Ridge on most days.

Enjoy, I hope this makes studying just that little bit easier!

[Known unresolved issues] If a video was published on a year different to the year you did/are doing the subject, it generally will not load (ie. did the subject in 2015, lecture video was from 2014).

it's not very useful when it's just an enable/disable button.
