sorry if this has been asked before, but i can't find much
out there - probably because i've never developed with flash
before, so not 100% sure what terms to look for.
basically, i want to put together a basic video listings page
of home movies (they're transcoded using ffmpeg into h264 format).
i've come to doing the flash player for this, and can't seem to
find info on setting things up how i imagined they'd work.
most/all tutorials for flash video involve encoding the video
into .flv with the player embedded in it, which isn't how i thought
it would work. i had planned/hoped to have a single flash video
front end for video playbay (using the flv fullscreen control),
which could be told to playback from the h264 file on the server,
or optionally to play through an xml list of h264 files.
is it possible to do this, without encoding to flv?
thanks for reading
