Extend JW Player to make HTTP API calls and display text within the player.
We are looking to extend JWPlayer's SWF Flash file. The main use case is to have a custom player display text pulled from an API in the bottom of the player - the resulting SWF file will be embedded inside the Facebook Timeline. API checkins every 10-15 seconds via restful HTTP call.
According to Longtail, only the JW5 Player works with a Facebook embed. We have tested with JW5 and works well. Would like to use the JWPlayer 6, but willing to continue using JWPlayer 5.
Experience with JWPlayer and Actionscript preferred.
