I need the fullscreen version (click the box at bottom right)
to scale the video like it is but without scaling the
controls(kinda like YouTube). I'm a fairly competent user (since
Flash 4) so could anyone point me in the right direction?
I've done this and it can be a little tricky/ugly. The FLV
playback component does not expose the skin in its API, so you have
to kind of hack it. Here is how you can get a reference to the skin
Where player is a reference to your flvplayback instance.
from there you can reference all the skin elements as you see them
named in your skin file... for example playpause_mc, volumeBar_mc
etc... So what I did is based on certain events, i would move and
scale the skin elements as needed.
