Do I need hosting?

Flowplayer Drive relieves you from dealing with encoding, hosting and streaming details. You simply upload your videos and embed the results on your site. Flowplayer Drive provides the optimum encoding and delivery.


Please consider the player-only option if you prefer to encode and host yourself.

Free version

Our free plan is a complete system for publishing videos on your site. Just upload your videos and begin managing them with an intuitive interface. You can stream up to 5GB of video every month for free. It's a great, risk-free way to evaluate the system and decide upon a paid plan later if needed. Just get started and go.

If needed, you can completely remove your Flowplayer account later.

Is free really free?

Yes. You can upload, encode, host and stream videos for free with the following limitations:

  1. Total streaming is limited to 5GB per month.
  2. The maximum duration of free videos is 4 minutes.
  3. Videos will be watermarked with a Flowplayer logo.

What is encoding?

Encoding is the process of transforming your original video into a format suitable for web delivery and playback in browsers. The challenge is to make the video as small as possible, compatible with all devices and browsers and still keep it looking great.

What is streaming?

Streaming means the amount of data sent from your Drive account to visitors.

How are the encoding costs calculated?

You can choose on an individual basis whether the video will be encoded to multiple bitrates or not. This can result in seven-times higher encoding costs compared to encoding to the standard resolution only.

The calculated output video means the summarized duration of all generated video formats, so for a five-minute input video, the output length will be five minutes of WebM plus five minutes of MP4 for the standard resolution.

More information

In which currency do you charge?

USD prices are estimated based on the current exchange rate for your convenience.

All billings are done in EUR. If you're located outside Europe, your bank / cc company will charge in your currency, based on their current exchange rate.

You can switch the displayed currency with the USD selector box.

When am I charged?

Accumulated costs will be charged once they reach 50 EUR, or at the end of a monthly period.

Do I need a player license?

You can use the free player and it will not show the Flowplayer logo for Drive videos.

The Flowplayer logo is not displayed when paid videos are streamed from our servers. This unbranded playback is at no extra cost. A Commercial-license version of the player is needed for custom logos or context menus.

How do I cancel?

Go to your account page and hit the cancel button. For the Economy, Pro and Enterprise plans, you'll receive a refund for unused quota.

Can I switch plans?

Yes. You can switch between paid plans, or cancel your account altogether whenever you wish. You can also upgrade free videos to a paid plan. We will adjust any payments accordingly.

What payment types do you accept?

We accept payments from MasterCard, Visa, Visa Debit and American Express. For license purchases we also accept PayPal or bank transfer. You do not need to supply card details for the free Drive plan, or to use Flowplayer Free.

Do I need to register to use Flowplayer Free?

No. You can just download and deploy it from your server, or load it from our free CDN. No account or license keys are required.
