I have a properly formed CuePoint XML file I generate from an
AppleScript that takes QT Chapter Marks and writes a CuePoint XML
for them. However, the File Type and Creator Type of the generated
file is TEXT and ttxt respectively. Flash Video encoder just
ignores these files and will not even let me select them to import
CuePoints. Checking sample CuePoint files created by the Encoder
reveals that they have no Type or Creator set. In fact they show
the attribute for these to be missing. The Encoder app refuses to
open any file with a Type applied. This is beyond frustrating and
just down right silly from a development stand point. Why on earth
should it limit based on type in this day and age. Since there is
no sane way of stripping the File Type attribute there seems to be
no viable way of opening a sane, well formed Cue Point XML file
created elsewhere on a Mac.
Does anyone have a suggestion, or can you point me to where
to file a really lame bug report with Adobe.
