I'm an actionscript newbie and have a question concerning
selecting on-demand FLVs from a single SWF file.
Basically we have a large amount of FLV files on our flash
media server and would like to access them through one SWF file
(the user would enter their last name through a text field to play
the related FLV):
- My current SWF file is currently playing a single FLV
through the stock video component (actionscript 2), and the
component's contentPath is fixed to a static RTMP address.
- Could anyone recommend the simplest way to inject a user's
response/variable (from a text-field) into the 'contentPath'
depending on how you have the file names set up, you should
be able to do just that - grab the text string from the input field
and concatenate it into the relevant path string and reload the
FLVplayback component. OR if the input is not part of the address
string - you could store the correct strings (paths) in Objects
that also contain a property that mirrors the user input - then
iterate through an array of objects checking that property until
you find the match and then use a 'path' property of the same
object to load the contentPath.
