I have several FLVs on a frame, and I want to use AS 3.0 to set the bitrate to different numbers by using actions on different frames.
The instance name of the flv is "demo", and my code currently specifies:
demo.bitrate = 0;
This does not seem to be stopping the download, which is what I am attempting to do. How do you properly script a specific bit rate?
the bitrate property of the flvplayback component doesn't throttle your user's connection. it allows you, in conjunction with a smil file, to tailor which flv to stream (or download):
So is there any way using AS 3.0 to say "on this frame, don't download the movie named .demo"? Or is there a way to set a hierarchy for which flvs are downlaoded first? Or maybe a way to "pause" the downloading?
you can use the closeVideoPlayer() method to stop the stream. i think that's your only option to stop the download.
p.s. you'll need to use the active and visible videoplayindex properties to assign them to non-zero values.
