    When I use aMember and set the video to "free", it still requires the user to login. Is there a way to show a video to a visitor (not logged in) on an aMember/WordPress integration using Flowplayer. I don't see a way to do this.

    Thanks in advance.

    Grant,
    I'm a 2-day old aMember/WP user. So, with the caveat stated that I haven't tried this myself yet, what about this:
    1. download your own free Flowplayer software from flowplayer.org (not use what's "inside" the aMember installation),
    2. upload them on your server/host in a new folder that doesn't fall under the aMember permissions/restrictions.
    3. put your video file in that same folder . . . or in yet another new folder that isn't protected by aMember.
    4. place your player embed code into a unprotected WP page.

    Remove it from the amember system and use am4show tags for non-logged in:
    [am4guest]

    show the video here
    [/am4guest]

    Yes, aMember video player requires user to login. We will add an option to do not require it to the next release!
