I'm stuck in my flash project, and I don't know how to fix
this, first a background.
I have develop a player in Directory, it is a News player,
that show news and advertising.
This play work perfectly, it support mpeg, jpeg, mov and
flash to play advertising for example.
Today I want to transfer this player to Unix, and I haven't
seen any develop program that support flash, until Adobe release
flash player to Unix. So now I think this is a perfect tools to do
this in, it can support Windows, Unix and even Mac, it is perfect.
Hmm, not so perfect, now I have work 3 weeks on this project, just
to realize the flash doesn't support flash. What I mean is, after
many hours of searching on the Internet, I realize that Flash can't
just play a flash file in a MC, I lose the background color, and I
see the animation come in from the side if I change the size to a
little movie clip on my main movie. I understand from the search,
that if the swf has no background it just transparent, that fin
with me, but why can't I turn that of, I just want to play it like
I did in Directory, or like Flash player does it, with the original
background. Still I don't know how to handle the animation's
problem, that runs from side to side, but isn't it funny that flash
can't play flash as is it, a simple switch will have don it.
Because it is advertising movies, I have no control over them, it
is not my production, so any variable, or just put a background in
it, is not a options for me.
I'm really stuck, does anyone have any other idea that I can
use, I prefer flash, but any other ideas is welcome to.
