I am trying to figure out how a FLV file can be embeded in a
swf using mxml under flash 9 (flex builder 2). Under flash 8 this
was done using Flash 8 pro:
"Since the introduction of Flash MX and Flash Player 6,
multimedia developers have been able to embed video within SWF
files by importing video and placing it on the Timeline in the
Flash authoring tool. When the SWF file is published, the video is
fully contained in that file. This approach requires only a normal
web server to deliver the video."
And you get a swf file with the length of the orginal movie.
I am seeking to figure out how to do this same thing in an
sutomated fashion for Flash 9.
would work. But it does not as it says ".flv" is not a
recognized extension. This same mxml will work if the embed is
ommited, but you get a small swf that has a videodisplay object
playing the external progressive flv. I would like the movie
embeded in the swf in order to allow maximal frame based control.
