I'm working on an app that preloads and then allows playback
of long (45-60 minute or more) presentations in a slide-based
format. I'm trying to work on integrating video playback, so that
if a particular slide has video content, it will just play back
when that slide is reached. I'm currently using the Vdieo Object
method, attatching a NetStream object to a video object and playing
it via ns.play(URL).
The problem with this is that it takes some time for hte
video to start playing back, and I don't want that to be the case.
I'd like it if there were someway to download the content of the
video in the background, storing the stream on the local machine,
and then beginning playback instantly on viewing the slide which
contains the video.
The problem is that there doesn't seem to be any way to
'load' movie content without playing it. It appears from the
documentation that one cannot call ns.play() without the net stream
object being attached to a video object, and it doesn't appear that
there is any way to start playing a video so that it loads, and
then pausing it so that it doesn't start to play back until I want
Any suggestions, or am I trying something entirely too wild
You have to only use the Netsream to load the videos
But, for your problem , due to the file size is bigger its
getting time to load and as well as start. want to know , where its
only start after fully loading the video ???
And you can also use ns.setBufferTime(0).
It makes your netstream faster to playBack.
