  1. git clone the viewer from here and follow the instrutions instructions on that page to install it locally I also installed tomcat and php to get it to work.
  2. In the ohms viewer, you can make your own standard player by adding the javascript and a php template.
    1. This is the php file we wrote, to be added to ohms-viewer/tmpl :
    2. and for the javascript, we just copied the one used for youtube in js/viewer_youtube.js and renamed it to js/viewer_oembed.js. This will be the main file that needs to be changed. It controls the playback. 
  3. Add the new oembed viewer to config/config.ini under players. The line should look like this: 
    players = other,brightcove,kaltura,youtube,oembed



We need to be able to send messages into the iframe to control the player in js/viewer_oembed.js – unfortunately you can't send messages very well that way, so we'll probably need to figure a way out to emembed embed everything within the iframe, leaving the iframe behind. This might require having to change what oembed returns, maybe we could supply parameters to specify non-iframe or iframe.
