Captain America The Winter Soldier

After the cataclysmic events in New York with The Avengers, Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" finds Steve Rogers, aka Captain America, living quietly in Washington, D.C. and trying to adjust to the modern world. But when a S.H.I.E.L.D. colleague comes under attack, Steve becomes embroiled in a web of intrigue that threatens to put the world at risk. Joining forces with the Black Widow, Captain America struggles to expose the ever-widening conspiracy while fighting off professional assassins sent to silence him at every turn. When the full scope of the villainous plot is revealed, Captain America and the Black Widow enlist the help of a new ally, the Falcon. However, they soon find themselves up against an unexpected and formidable enemy—the Winter Soldier. Based on the ever-popular Marvel comic book series, first published in 1941, Marvel's "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is produced by Kevin Feige, directed by Anthony and Joe Russo, from a screenplay by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, and stars Chris Evans, Scarlett Johansson, Sebastian Stan, Anthony Mackie, Cobie Smulders, Frank Grillo, Emily VanCamp and Hayley Atwell, with Robert Redford as Alexander Pierce and Samuel L. Jackson as Nick Fury. "Captain America: The Winter Soldier" is presented by Marvel Studios. The executive producers are Louis D'Esposito, Victoria Alonso, Michael Grillo, Alan Fine and Stan Lee. The film releases March 26 2014, and is distributed by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
Based on Frank Miller's latest graphic novel Xerxes, and told in the breathtaking visual style of the blockbuster "300," this new chapter of the epic saga takes the action to a fresh battlefield—on the sea—as Greek general Themistokles attempts to unite all of Greece by leading the charge that will change the course of the war.
Seven Souls is a 1989 album by the New York based music group Material. The album was re-released in 1997 with bonus tracks, three re-mixes that were added to the beginning of the album. In 1998, a new title, The Road to the Western Lands, was issued, composed of new mixes of the tracks. "Equation" / "Ineffect" was released as a single in 1989 (Virgin America, PR 3380).
Hero Mode is the second Mutation Mode variant, based of Zombie: The Hero from Counter-Strike Online, also extending on Mutation Mode. It throws more threatening mutants against soldiers.
Big Buck Bunny (code-named Peach) is a short computer-animated comedy film by the Blender Institute, part of the Blender Foundation.[4][5] Like the foundation's previous film Elephants Dream, the film was made using Blender, a free software application for animation made by the same foundation. It was released as an Open Source film under Creative Commons License Attribution 3.0.[6]

Internet Explorer 9 YES NO NO
Firefox 4.0 NO YES YES
Google Chrome 6 YES YES YES
Apple Safari 5 YES NO NO
Opera 10.6 NO YES YES


2.2. Setup the component

I. Create a playlist

There are two ways to create a playlist:

First one is to go through Components -> SJ Video Player -> Add new playlist, the following will open


Give your playlist a name (eg. Playlist1), then Save&Close. Publish the playlist.

The second way is through Components -> SJ Video Player -> Manage playlists and the following will open:


Give your playlist a name (eg. Playlist1), then Save&Close. Publish the playlist.

II. Add videos to playlist

There are two ways to add a new video to a playslist.

The first way is via Components -> SJ Video Player -> Add new video. The following will open:


Give your video a name.

Select it's source. If is a youtube video select Youtube and if is a local file select Local

URL/Youtube id 

If the video is from youtube the id must be inserted here. The id is the code after the ?v= from  the youtube link.
ex: If the link is the id will be xJ_gZ-h2X9Y

If the video is a local file the path to the local file must be inserted starting from images. 
ex: images/myvideos/big_buck_bunny_trailer

Do not specify the extension in the name of the file. The different file formats must have same name.
ex: if we have the video big_buck_bunny_trailer on the ftp we must have the following files: 

Poster image 

For youtube videos the poster image field will not be present and it will complete automatically with the image that youtube is using for that video.

For local files select the image you want to use from the images/mythumbs folder that you have created earlyer.


Here you can add description to your video. The field supports HTML tags, so you can create any structure here. (like you can use h1 tags for titles)
ex: <h1>My video</h1>
<p>My desc goes here</p>

Is NOT mandatory to use html tags but helps sometimes. Theese tags can be styled in the module under the CSS field.


Select the playlist in which you want the video to be.

Save & Close

Remember to publish the video.

Another way to add new videos to your playlist is via Components -> SJ Video Player -> Manage videos. It will look like below:

 The Video Manager that will open is the same one with the previous presented one. Fill all the fields according the setup from above.

2.3. Setup the module

The module does not support multiple instances for now.
Select Extensions -> Module Manager from the top menu and click SJ Video Player in the list.
