Hello, I am having a flash player developed right now for a
intensive video site.
I have a few questions since I'm new to flash.
I would like the users to be able to jump forward in the
video at any point. However, the player my developer gave me cannot
do this. He is telling me that I will need FMS (Flash Media Server)
software on my server in order to do this.
Is this correct? Can we get this option without FMS?
Also, is this a big change in scope to add this in. Our flash
player is already done but does not have this very important
2. Keyframe the heck out of the FLV. This works because the
typical player skin allows you to skip around to a keyframe. The
more keyframes you have, the more places you can skip around to.
The downside is that each keyframe you add to the video adds file
size. You may also need to set the totalTime parameter of the video
:: EDIT ::
You ask about implementation and scope changes in your
question. The first is a very big scope change, and very costly to
implement. The second, if the player that was developed uses the
standard classes for the player scrub bar, would likely only
require a re-encode of every video.
