Sorry if this has been asked/answered. I just don't know how to ask it or search for it succinctly.
I came up with a small,. single frame flash app in CS4 which loads a NetStream FLV and has a play and pause button.
So the 'stage' has an image and symbols for play and pause and the AS on frame #1.
Now I'd like to enhance this by keeping the play/pause buttons on frame 1, but then having some other animation which runs -before- the FLV runs. IOW: I want the play button to do some simply animation for 30-40 frames and -then- play the video.
How do I do this? When I gave it a shot... by keeping the play/pause buttons on frame 1, then having some animation and then the FLV on frame 50, the animation is nuts... the play button just blinks and the movie never loads.
Any ideas on getting started?
Hi Suntower ,
I created a sample FLA file which tries to do somewhat similar to what you want to achieve. I have shared this sample with you.You can take a look and make the modifications according to the CS4 file that you already have i.e load/play/pause the FLV .
Let me know if that helps.
Thanks and regards,

This project doesn't sound that complex... just break it down into steps.
Don't try to play the video until you get the animated buttons working.... which may not end up being the same button that actually "plays" the video.
You may have the buttons just looping and the timeline never gets to frame 50.
First, you'll need to just get the animation buttons working... and then in frame 50 place a big green square and a stop();... just to show that the timeline reached frame 50.
Until you fix the problem with the buttons, you won't be able to move to the next step... playing the video.
