In this situation, you can easily add the Time Tag to your custom FLV player when customizing it with PlayerDIY Web Player, you only need to click the plugin, make some settings and click “Submit” button on the following interface.

Tutorial for situation 2 (already have a FLV player which customized with PlayerDIY Web Player)

In this situation, to make the Time Tag work in the existed FLV player, you need to put a folder named “plus” (contains a plugin file timetip.swf ) and a file addonslist.xml in the same folder with the player files.

The “plus” folder with an timetip.swf file and the addonslist.xml file can be easily generated with PlayerDIY Web Player.

However, if you don't want to generate the “plus” folder and the addonslist.xml file with PlayerDIY Web Player, then you could build them by yourself.

In default, the code of the addonslist.xml file as below:

<?xml version="1.0"?><addonslist><addonsitem href="plus/timetip.swf?s=1&amp;sp=2"/></addonslist>

The timetip.swf file is the plugin, if PlayerDIY web Player was installed in your C: disc and the plugin is free trial version, you could get it from C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\PlayerDIY\WebPlayer\addons\free.

However, if the plugin is registered version, then you could get the file from C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\My Documents\PlayerDIY\WebPlayer\addons\yourdomain
