Linking Multiple Video Segments with Button -Advice on General Approach

Apr 22, 2012 6:27 AM

Hi,

 

Am looking to create an interactive presentation that consists of a series of videos, linked together with buttons. For example after the first video the user is presented with a choice of 4 buttons. The next video to play is then dependent upon which button the user clicks.

 

Am looking for the switch between videos to be as seamless as possible, what do you think would be the best approach?

 

1. Multiple video files loaded into my project and then using one or more FLVPlayback components to control which one is being played.

 

2. A single long video that has Navigation Cue Points that are then used to move within the video as required.

 

First time doing a project such as this, so would welcome any advice.

 

Thanks,

Andy.

    use 1 flvplayback instance and a listener to detect the end of each video whose listener function starts the next video or presents your buttons.

    yes, you're not going to get seamless play because the videos are downloading as they play.  when you start one, there's going to be a momentary delay before it starts.
