I have googled this to death and cannot believe the scarcity of information on this. Adobe releases the component source files for this component, but I have yet to find any instructions on how to modify the src files and recompile it. Here is what I have done so far:
I have modified the NCManager class to do what I need. I have added the downloaded fl.video.* classes to my classpath in Flash. I have set the needed compiler constants. I have added an instance of the 2.5 flvplayback component to the stage. It will compile, but when I test the swf file in flash, I get output errors like:
TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference.
at test_fla::MainTimeline/__setProp_test_Scene1_Layer1_0()[test_fla.MainTimeline::__setProp_ test_Scene1_Layer1_0:7]
Where 'test' is the name of the flvplayback component on the stage. If I remove the downloaded component src files from my classpath, all works as expected, but I can't then use my modified NCManager class. I'm really stumped on how to solve this. Has someone else ever tried this?
I finally got this to work by removing all of the classes except the NCManager, then gradually added them back one by one until it compiled.
I still would like to know how to compile a new flvplayback component from these source files, as it does not appear to be that straight forward.
