wow. Big project. I'm not quite sure what it has to do with
I guess if an index exists out there where you can pass it an
XML file with an artist name (or whatever) and it will return and
XML with a path to an mp3 file (or whatever kind of content you
need) that would work... but I'm not sure that exists. In the
least, whether you write the server side stuff or whether it exists
out there already, there is a significant server side component.
Remember - flash is only client side.
But first, let's just ignore that HUGE issue for awhile, and
talk about the skills you will need to do this. You will need to
know how to build XML data objects. (look up XML and XMLNode data
types in flash's help) You will need to know how to load, send, and
recieve them... And you will have to know how to load mp3 (or
whatever) content into movie clips. Once you can do all this, you
will be able to describe your question in more detail, and we will
be able to help you better.
