Flash projector questions

Feb 22, 2012 6:05 PM

First, I'm in OS 10.7.3 using CS5.5 First problem here is, there any reason why I publish an .fla to an .app I get the circle thru the icon? Publishes all other platforms fine?

 

Second, I have a Quicktime .mov that has deliberate pauses in it. The idea is for the user to have to hit a play button for the movie to continue, I need to know the best way to do this. Do I

 

Import the .mov in the Media Encoder and convert to an .flv

 

Drop the flv in an fla?

 

The movie is long so do I use Cue Points so I can stop the movie on the frame I want and use a button on stage to go to frame and play when the user wants to resume playing?

 

If so can I get a pointer or two on this?

 

Thx

 

Rd

    i dont' know what you're describing about publishing an .app file.

     

    converting your mov to an flv or f4v is a good idea.  you can play your video using an flvplayback component.

     

    you can add cuepoints in media encoder and use those to stop your video.

    create a new directory with no subdirectories.  save your fla and publish to that new directory.

    take small steps first.  create a new fla that contains nothing.  save to your desktop.  publish an .app file.  does it work?

    then you have a flash program issue.  search google:  "flash cannot publish app file" and, if that fails to turn up a solution, call adobe for tech support.
