I just start using the Flash Media Playback configurator : http://www.osmf.org/configurator/fmp/ and I am very surprised that the size of the swf file is less than 2KB. The swf file used is http://fpdownload.adobe.com/strobe/FlashMediaPlayback.swf
How did you compile it to make it so small ? It is based on OSMF ?
Usually the swf file's size of a flash video player based on OSMF seems to be greater. For example the swf file used on page http://www.osmf.org/ (http://www.osmf.org/strobe1_0/StrobeMediaPlayback.swf) is about 193KB or on page http://osmf.org/dev/1.6gm/setup.html (http://osmf.org/dev/1.6gm/StrobeMediaPlayback.swf) is about 422KB.
Thanks in advance.
The .swf you are mentioning is just a preloader of the actuall player. The player is cached, that's why you don't see any requests for it.
Hope we don't dissapoint you with this answer :-)
Thanks for the quick reply Gelu. I emptied the cache of my web browser and had a look at all http requests (with Charles proxy and Firebug) sent when loading the page http://www.osmf.org/configurator/fmp/. The only .swf loaded I can see is http://fpdownload.adobe.com/strobe/FlashMediaPlayback.swf.
Is there another cache involved ?
Ok I get it now. The cache of the flash player is in use in this situation. The actually player is : http://fpdownload.adobe.com/strobe/StrobeMediaPlayback_1.5.199M_for_fp 10.0.swz as the player was compiled using the framework RSLs (http://help.adobe.com/en_US/flex/using/WS2db454920e96a9e51e63e3d11c0bf 69084-7add.html)
