    Execute a server-side script

    essa tkinen Level 1

      anyone no how to execute a server side php script with out sending it any variables or receiving any variables and not opening up a new window.


      Error #2030: End of file was encountered. this is the error I get when using this code


      What the php file does is encode flv files. It calls it self tell all the uploaded videos in the cue database list are converted. So I upload 3 videos the script takes and does the 1st file then 2nd and then 3rd. In the flash player I get error 2030 every time the script call .its self.


      If I just call the php script outside of flash with a browser it works perfectly.


      I've been using all kinds of variations of URLRequest and URLLoader really stumped . Thanks flexperts.



      private function encodeHandler(event:DataEvent):void



      var variables:URLVariables = new URLVariables();


      variables.fileName = 'd';

      variables.fileExt = 's';


      var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://" + ModelLocator.SERVER + "/scripts/videoConvert.php")

      request.method = "get";

      request.data = variables;



      var loader:URLLoader = new URLLoader();

      loader.dataFormat = URLLoaderDataFormat.VARIABLES;

      loader.addEventListener(Event.COMPLETE, completeHandler);





      //status.text = "Encoding video...";


          trace('start encoding');



      catch (error:Error)


          //status.text = "Unable to load URL";

          trace('encoding error cant load url');




      function onStatus(event:HTTPStatusEvent):void


      if (event.status != 0) {

          //status.text = "Encoding Error";

          trace('encoding error');




      function completeHandler(event:Event):void


      //status.text = "Encoding Complete";

      trace('encoding complete');
