I'm working with a university on a project related to
interactive marketing using video. What I'm looking to do is find a
method that a user can start a video and then during playback click
a scripted button nearby that will base its action on where in that
video the user is.
For example, you could have a 3 minute video, the first
minute being a flat blue screen, second minute being a flat green
screen, and last minute being a flat red screen. This video would
be some simple embedded .flv file. The flash file would also have a
scripted "PUSH ME" button somewhere near the FLV video player. When
someone started the video and then hit the button it would pop up
an box or send an email (ect) that states "You've clicked on the
button during the [RED, BLUE, GREEN] section." according to when
they clicked the button.
Would anyone be able to point me to a tutorial that might
explain how to go about recognizing at what point during a video
playback a user interacts with that video, or might it be a simple
few lines of action script?
