I have various FLV's in different layers and also in a couple
of movieclips of my one single swf project. Only one FLV is ever
playing and indeed only one should ever exist at any one time.
I have built a custom controller _root.v.c.playBtn, etc.
So far I'm giving each flv it's own instance name and then
linking it as shown to the controller:
The actionscript for each flv is being placed on the
actionscript keyframe added above each flv instance.
(The controller appears and disappears depending on whether
it is needed using a bunch of if statements in the swf. Having said
that, it is positioned on the root timeline in a place where it
always exists or is accessible from all other areas of the swf.)
Some of these flv's are linking easily to the controller and
some don't seem to see it. Also, some are not cancelling out so
that another flv along the timeline has 2 or 3 volume sliders on
the one volumeBar.
I'm not familiar with arrays or whatever I should really use,
but can you guide me as to how to simply script in one main place
some actionscript that will tell the controller to work for all
flv's or all flv's to work with the controller. And then if needed,
I can then just tell each flv instance where to point.
The project is built like a typical Flash template only the
flv's are not altogether on the same timeline. Thanks for any
Basically - I'd like to know how to reset a custom controller
when switching from an flv on one keyframe to an flv on the next
keyframe. Otherwise I'm getting no seekbar on the video that is
played second or duplicate volume handles. (one for each vid -
causing only one to work).
