trying to change the contentPath (or even using just play.)
seems to get stuck if there is a file who's stream has not
completed yet. Is there a way to closeVideoPlayer(0); then reopen
it. Would I need to use attachMovie after closing it?
removeMovieClip was offered as a solution somewhere else which
makes me think it could work as well, but there must be a simpler
solution then removing and reattaching my FLVplayback component.
Also the attachMovie states it requires a skin to be declared, and
if there is no skin being used, I've made custom controls, how
would I go about specifying this? I've also tried using
getVideoPlayer after closeVideoPlayer, does not seem to produce the
results I am after. I realize the SMIL option works, but this will
not require it. Can anyone please help, this has been a major
headache for a few days. All I need to be able to do is play a new
video/audio flv file, no matter if the one currently playing is
fully streamed or not. Right now the options offered in the help
files completely destroy the functionality of the player, and
forcing a user to wait per load before they can make a new choice
is absurd and a terrible logisitic hack. thanks for any thoughts.
I have not had a problem with changing contentPath in
Perhaps there are other FLVPlayback properties set that
Here is a quote from docs:
"If you set this property through ActionScript, the
FLVPlayback instance closes the current FLV file and immediately
begins loading the new FLV file. The autoPlay, totalTime, and
isLive properties affect how the new FLV file is loaded, so if you
set these properties, you must set them before setting contentPath
Set the autoPlay property to false to prevent the new FLV
file from playing automatically."
hmm, I need it to auto play, and this is not the first time I
saw it posted, I fixed it by removeMovieClip, on press attachMovie,
(this movie has the player nested within), changing a root /global
variable:String; on press which stes the url that the movie player
being loaded calls for. Seams to cut the stream, but I have not had
it return the properties to inspect if that is actually the case. I
have seen other work arounds, but could not get them to work for
me. Thanks though.
PS it's progressively downloading not streaming, which may
have caused the confusion and the post title should be changed,
super hury now though so no time.
