    Video.smoothing

    ClayHalliwell Level 1
      I've just noticed that there's a "smoothing" property under the Video object in Flash. I've also noticed that Google Video (which uses FLVs) allows you to toggle smoothing, and it looks great when enabled. Unfortunately, I can't figure out how to enable smoothing when using the FLVPlayback component. It doesn't seem to expose the .smoothing property to the developer. Am I going to have to ditch FLVPlayback and roll my own player to get nice smooth-scaled video?

          Hi, you can add that in one way.
          First get the instance name of video component used in the flash playback component.
          You can get it by tracing all the instances name.
          for(i in flvComponentInstanceName)
          {
          trace(i);
          }
          then , use like flvComponentInstanceName.videCompo.smoothing = true;

            Thanks arunbe! Your solution wasn't exactly right, but it did point me in the right direction. This is the final code (where I've named the FLVPlayback component "myFLV"):

            myFLV.getVideoPlayer(myFLV.activeVideoPlayerIndex)._video.smoothing = true;

            If you don't mind living dangerously, you can also get away with:
            myFLV[0]._video.smoothing = true;
