I am reworking a project that initially had some quicktime
videos in it. I have pause, play, stop, fastforward, and rewind
button controls on the stage that control the sprite ( video) in
frame 20 for instance.
sprite (20).movieRate = 0
Intially I did the lingo on the buttons to control the
movieRate which worked great for Quicktime video. However our
company basically supports the Windows media player so I had to
switch to using the WMV video. I have changed the code to work with
this new format i,e.
on mouseUp me
Except, the client wants to be able to rewind and fastforward
the video like they could with the Quicktime version. I could not
figure out how to do that. The searches I've done don't tell me a
Can anyone help me with the code to make this possible or is
it even possible?
Thank you very much for any help you could give me.
You should be able to get the WMV to playback back fast or
slow, but probably not in reverse. The file format just isn't good
Personally I gave up on VTR style FWD & RWD a long time
ago due to this kind of issue. You can still use the same buttons
in your interface, but the video simply jumps fwd or back, usually
in 10 sec increments
