    Need help, FLA to HTML5


      Using Adobe Professional, I have FLA with component that points to mp4 over rtmp, published and linked html to my site. I need to import the FLA into Animate, convert to html5 and publish the html and link it on my site? Adobe Animate opens the current FLA and shows the rtmp://***/vod/mp4:/2016/012016/0107a2016.mp4 as source in Component Parameters. Here is one example - 0107a2016 . I have about 4000 talks to convert. Thanks in advance.

          HTML5 Canvas mode uses a different scripting language and multimedia API than ActionScript mode, so any code will have to be manually rewritten. Components will not work at all.

            Thanks for the prompt reply. Now the next question, how to embed that streamed mp4 in HTML5 Canvas.

              You'll have to float a native HTML video element over the stage. Here's some simple code to manage this sort of thing:


              // Create a DIV layer above the canvas
              // Accepts ID, X, Y, width, height, HTML content, and CSS styling (optional)
              // CSS styling is a CSS-formatted literal string
              mkDiv = function(id, x, y, w, h, html, css) {
                  var d = document.createElement("div");
                  d.id = id;
                  d.style.cssText = "position:absolute; left:" + x + "px; top:" + y + "px; width:" + w + "px; height:" + h + "px; overflow:auto;" + (css ? css : "");
                  d.innerHTML = html;
              // Remove an element by id
              rmDiv = function(id) {
                  try {
                      var elem = document.getElementById(id);
                  catch(e) {}


              Then call like so to create an HTML5 video element above the stage canvas:


              mkDiv("myvidplayer", 0, 0, 640, 480, "<video src='myvideo.mp4' autoplay controls></video>");


              Note however that if the canvas is set up to scale to the browser size (incorrectly called "responsive" mode by some), things get a lot more complicated. You'll have to use CSS transforms to sync any overlaid DIVs with the size of the canvas.
