Apologies if this has been addressed before (I've read the
forums and seen references to this problem but couldn't find any
real soultions) anyway here goes -
Using the NetConnection/NetStream method to play FLVs in
Flash Player 7* is proving problematic - I'm getting Audio but no
The ActionScript Language Reference quotes NetStream's
availability as: Action Script 1.0 and Flash Player 7.
I have tried different combinations of 'publishing settings'
(e.g. for Player 7 and Actionscript 1.0 / for Player 7 and
ActionScript 2.0 )
The FLV I'm using is compressed with the Flash 8 Video
Encoder using the Flash Player 7, Medium Quality Setting, so should
be Flash Player 7 compatible.
Here is a sample section of code (pretty much lifted straight
from the AS Language Reference example page on NetStream).
my_video = new Video();
my_nc = new NetConnection();
my_ns = new NetStream(my_nc);
*The reason I'm trying to do this with Flash Player 7 is that
I have a client who is a little web savvy (it's true what they say,
that a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing!) and is pretty
much insisting I use 7, for reasons of ubiquity, even though
practically the entire site is made up of 3D FLVs. (Do you think
I'd be better off just saying 'it ain't gonna happen in 7 and that
8 is more than ubiquitous enough at this stage'?).
Anyway let me know what any of you think about this.
thanks for the reply -
Yes, 'my_video' is an instance of a video object - i tried
commenting out that line but still no joy in 7.
But everything is working fine in 8 so I think I'll be going
back to the client with a couple of stats on the use of 8
(including the codec - cheers)
