Can you put Video Controls on an .flv video?

Dec 6, 2012 4:21 PM

Tags: #flash #flv

I have an .flv file in my .fla file.  However, when I play the movie, it simply plays the movie along the timeline.  Is there a way to put video controls on this file?  Or do I need to use the videoPlayback option?

 

If I do need to use the videoPlayback option, how do I make sure that the video always work, even if I move it to a different computer (because the references to the movie will change)?

 

Thank you very much in advanced.

    If you want to have controls you should not import the flv into the timeline.  Instead, add an FLVPlayback component from the components library and specify the path/name of your flv file as its source (in the Properties panel).

     

    I do not understand moving to a different computer changes the references to the movie.  Can you explain more about that?

    If you move the swf you will need to move the flv with it.
