FLVPlayback.complete coding help

Apr 26, 2010 5:58 AM

I am wanting to play a number of movie clips and flash produced video clips. On the main timeline I have a frame for each clip I want to play. In that frame is a flash movie that contains the video that I have embedded onto the timeline for the movie.


The filesize for this project is massive and I am struggling to work on the file.


I want to be able to play the video files with the playback component in each of the frames where the video was.


From a previos post I have made I was told that I need to add a listener 'FLVPlayback.complete' to let flash know when the video in that particular frame has finished playing.


Unfortunately I'm not familiar with Action Script coding at all and I am totally lost.


I would like the code to tell flash that once the video file in that particular frame is complete then move onto the next frame in the parent timeline. I need something that will do this 'MovieClip(parent).nextFrame();'  but only when the video has finished playing.


I'd be extremely grateful if somebody could tell me what I need codewise and how to set it up.


Sorry to sound cheeky but I really am struggling with this.


Many thanks

    Let's say you give your FLYPlayback an instance name of "fp".  You can add a complete event listener and event handler function using:


    fp.addEventListener(VideoEvent.COMPLETE, moveOn);


    function moveOn(evt:VideoEvent):void {




    That call in the function assumes your video play is inside a movieclip that sits in the main timeline.

    Try adding this line in the beginning of your code...
