on Flash CS3, on a movie with AS2.0, Flash 8 export settings
I am using the FLVplayback component, and I am setting the
Buffering time to 10 seconds, so when viewed online the flash movie
pre-buffers the flv enough so it won't break while playing. The flv
I a loading is 5MB so I need to do this prebuffering.
However, when tested online the ovie only waits half or one
second and then plays... (for a technical reason I cannot test
offline btw, so I always have to upload to the server).
How do I actually force the flv to be streamed for the time I
ask and play after that time has passed?
If my problem is not clear enough I will reply asap with more
the docs state that for a progressively downloaded FLV there
is little benefit from increasing the bufferTime property - so
unless your using a FCS (Flash Communication Server) and a 'rtmp'
address you won't be able to effect it.
However I suppose what one could do would be to use the event
handlers to initiate a 'timed delay'. this would mean that when a
user calls for the load to begin you start the load, 'stop' the
playback, disable the controls, and start a timer with a progress
indicator for the user. Then when the 'time' is complete - start up
