the NetStream is removed from myVideo and only myVideo2
displays the video! I can obviously get around this by creating a
second NetStream object and use that with myVideo2, but this will
mean that I'm getting 2 streams from FMS, when they are in practice
going to be the same stream.
I've got not controls for the stream - meaning that I'm not
going to pause, rewind, play etc. I understand if this was the case
then actions performed on the stream would impact both Videos. But
all I'm doing is playing the stream from start to finish.
So my question is - is this possible? Is there a way to
attach a single NetStream to multiple Video objects and have them
all play the same stream?
If not, here's what I'm trying to achieve anyway (perhaps
there's a better way without using the above method):
I want to display a video streamed from FMS, but I want to
mask it with a draggable 'keyhole' kind of thing to show the video
through the keyhole. But rather than having the rest of the video
completely masked out, I want to have a second video playing that
is blurred out. I'll have my blurred video, then my mask, then my
real video, masked.
So in essence, there will be a blurred video, with clarity
only in the dragable portion of my mask.
I've got all of this working, except for the issue outline
above. If I do use a second NetStream (something I'm quite opposed
to), the best I can get is a blurred video playing, with a dragable
mask showing clear video, that is slightly out of sync with my
blurred video. The lack of syncronisation is another reason I don't
want 2 NetStreams, as well as the obvious overhead to FMS.
If anyone knows of a better way to do this that I'm doing,
please let me know!! ;-)
