Video resizing from the browser?

Dec 21, 2011 8:18 AM

Hi,

 

I honestly don't know if this can be fixed within Cp, or if its soley an issue with the browser, but either way, if anyone knows or can direct me to the answer, I would be infinitely grateful...

 

I am publishing my Cp project and putting it online (Blackboard.com, if that matters), which works fine. The problem is that depending on what resolution the students' monitors are, the video may turn out to be too big or too small. The temporary (but bad) solution I thought of is to post two or three links on Blackboard (Bb), each with a different resolution that the student can choose based on their screen resolution. Here's the key thing that's driving me: A couple months ago, we had it so that when the browser was resized, it resized the Cp video with it. As a result of this, when the browser was full-screen, the Cp video was full-screen within the browser, i.e., no matter what resolution the student had, the Cp video would adjust to it. Here's the problem: For some reason, that stopped happening, and now, the video can't be resized at all within the browser. I know a lot about Cp, but practically nothing about integrating it with websites and stuff, so I'm yet to find out how to reproduce my past success. This is the only major problem with our system so far, and needs to be solved before we can launch, so if anyone can point me in the right direction, it would make me (and my boss) very happy.

 

Thanks.

    Are you putting the SWF on BB or do you upload a package that contains not only the SWF but also the companion JS and HTML-files?

     

    In the last case, you can change the HTML-file and replace the fixed width/height by 100%.  Beware: resizing to another size than the original always results in quality loss.

    Hi Brian,

     

    The html looks good.  The problems is probably caused by an inserted animation or widget that is preventing the scaling.  Are you using any widgets and if so, which ones?

    Also, you may want to give this widget a try...

    It could be widgets or animations.  You'll have to do a process of elimination.  Make a backup copy of your .cptx project.  Remove one widget or animation at a time and republish.

    I'm not aware of any workaround.  You could download the trial for Flash 5.5 and use it for 30 days to make your changes.  Also, widgets do not live in the library, which is strange.
