I posted this in the Flex forum because I didn't know where it should go. I'm starting to get calls from users who have updated to Flash 11.2 and no longer see video properly. So, I loaded the 11.2 debug version in FB 4.6.1 to see what's going on. I'm using the OSMF MediaPlayer, and the MEDIA_PLAYER_STATE_CHANGE event is sending "buffering" when the video is stopped. The PLAY_STATE_CHANGE event no longer sends "stopped" as an event.playState. So, it creates a big problem when the video stops, since there is no longer a "stopping' event fired.
The first issue was using OSMF 1.6 so I finally got OSMF 2.0 installed in the project and it's doing the very same thing.. When the video stops, all I get for the MEDIA_PLAYER_STATE_CHANGE event is "buffering". I get no indication of the video stopping from the PLAY_STATE_CHANGE. This would seem like a major problem for anyone trying to determine when a video has stopped playing?... No? Please advise, level of panic increasing rapidly!
What type of asset are you using? live?
If so, I might suggest further reading:
If not, please report an issue to http://bugs.adobe.com/jira/browse/FM with details that can help us replicate the situation.
Thank you in advance,
Actually, it's an .flv file I'm trying to play via rtmp. So, I'm guessing the article you suggested won't provide much help. I'll file a bug report and we'll see what comes up there. Thanks for the reponse!
Steve: Have you found anything out?
Flash Player 11.2 seems to have 'broken' my video as well. I have a live stream (F4M) that works fine for Flash 11.1 and Silverlight, but for 11.2 there is audio but no video. I have upgraded to the 1.6 release of Strobe Media Playback, but it didn't make any difference.
Is anyone else experiencing this?
I tried your link first and it does fire the "stopping" event:
However, it was an http link and we're using rtmp. Do you have an rtmp link I can try? I provided a link from our server in the bug report. As I said there, we have hundreds of courses that have been recorded over the past two years and all work fine with 11.1 or earlier. None of them work properly (fire the stopping event) with 11.2.
Here's the stream:
I'll have a look at the 'setup' page.
Tried different values for streamType and enableStageVideo, with no improvement. Also tried enabling showVideoInfoOverlayOnStart, but didn't seem to work. Can you suggest changes to any other parameters?
I also have the exact same problem on my custom osmf player.
The PlayEvent.PLAY_STATE_CHANGE event doesn't send "stopped", but "playing" and "paused" only.
And also the TimeEvent.COMPLETE doesn't send "complete".
I use this player for receiving videos with HDS f4m streaming video from FMS 4.5.
Where in the source should I check to detect the problem comes??
