We have a large base on content developed for use in Director
projects. I'm interesting in the possibility of doing some new
stuff in ActionScript, but it seems there's no support for
QuickTime media. So my question is:
1. Any way to place and control QuickTime video with
ActionScript in a Flex project?
2. If not, will ActionScript let me control Flash video with
the same fine-grained precision that Lingo provides for QuickTime
in Director? Especially playback head position (time).
3. In general, is it premature to migrate Director
applications to Flex/ActionScript? Is the necessary functionality
I'm not familiar with Director, but for the Flash Player (and
hence, Flex), the video has to be in Flash Video (FLV) format. One
way to convert it is to use Sorensen Squeeze from Sorensen Media
