OK, this seems like it would be simple, but I cannot get it
to work. I have 2 flv's that have to play at the same time - one is
a prof. in front of a electronic microscope and the other is the
actual feed from the microscope - so I need them to be able to be
controlled by one set of components. So, I have tried everything in
my ability. Currently, the setup is as follows:
I have 4 layers
Actions - where this script resides
Player - play/pause, seek, and volume bar reside
Scope - FLV of microscope
TH - FLV of talking head
Both my Flv's have an instance name of "myVideo" and when I
test the swf, only the last layer plays and is controlled (if the
Talking Head is in the last layer that will play and vice versa).
I cannot figure out, nor find anything, anywhere on how to
control both these FLVs with only one comonent.
Playing more than one FLV will result in more than one
NetStream object. Each NetStream object plays independently. Add to
that each progressively downloads separately so one may begin
playing before the other. Attempts to seek a point in the videos
will also be unpredictable unless cue points where added during
encoding. But then playing from the cue point is unpredictable.
The best plan for video like this might be shorter lengths or
combining into one.
You can combine the raw video files in Premier or Windows
MovieMaker and then publish and then encode one FLV.
