Usually Flash video in swf files are just a long timeline with many frames. You should be able to ask the Flash sprite for its _totalframes property value. That will give you the tota length. Then you can use the _currentframe property value to tell you where you are.
If you client assembled these files and put the video clip in another movieClip then you'll have to get the path to the actual video part.
Thanks for replying.
Seems a little more advanced than what I am familiar with, but I will look into it. Do you know of any tutorial that is similar to what I am trying to accomplish? even if is not the same exact situation.
Have a look at this example file, it should explain it: http://www.ddg-designs.com/downloads/flashVidinDirector.zip
There is no code of any sort in the Flash movie. Everything is controlled from the Director movie.
This is great! Thank you!
One problem, I can hear the movie and scrub it, but I can't see it.
Why is that?
Even when I publish the file, I can hear it, but cant see it...
If you're using Director MX 2004, have you installed both updates?
I have Director MX 2004 version 10.1
They have had it since before I joined the company, is this the latest?
I found the 10.1.1 update on the Adobe site. I saved my old files, just in case, and replaced the new ones one by one. I am now able to see the flash movie inside Director and on my exe when it is published. My Director still says v. 10.1 thou....Anyway, I am going to try and use the file you send me with my customer's SWF files.
Thanks for your help!
