Using CS4 Creative Suite. I little or no action script skills.
I created a 2 minute flash .fla file. At the end I added a button that when clicked, opens a window to another site. When I exported as an .swf file, the button worked fine. When I added the .swf file to an html page it worked fine too. The problem came when I wanted to add a skin with video controls.
I went through the tutorial which says I need to import the my video as a FLV or F4V file. The ony way I could do that was to export my FLA file as a MOV file and convert it to a FLV file in Adobe Media Encoder CS4. But when I did that I lost my link at the end.The video controls work great but how do I add the hyper link back in?
And why the heck can't one export a FLV file from Flash?
(this message is so old the responses were lost during an adobe conversion a few years ago.)
the answer to the op's issue, is that you can't create an flv that executes actionscript. however, you can create an flv that contains cuepoints and the cuepoints can trigger actionscript to execute.
so, the op should add a cuepoint to the end of the flv (or, if using as3, just use an Event.COMPLETE event listener for the flvplayback component) to detect the end of the flv and trigger the navigateToURL code.
