    Spark VideoPlayer problem


      I am trying to work with a Spark VideoPlayer and load video into it depending on what is selected in a tree.


      I can populate a label or text field but when I try to set the source of the player is throws up this error:


      TypeError: Error #1006: value is not a function.

      My code is:


      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>

      <s:Application xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009" xmlns:s="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/spark"

      <mx:HTTPService id="srv" url="assets/data.xml" resultFormat="e4x"/>

      <mx:XMLListCollection id="datalist" source="{srv.lastResult.category}"/>




      import flash.net.navigateToURL;

      private var source:String;

      private function poplulateViewer(event:Event):void{

      if (player.playing) {



      var selectedNode:Object=event.target.selectedItem;

      playerPanel.title = selectedNode.@name;



      private function goToJaijaz() : void


                      navigateToURL( new URLRequest( "http:www.jaijaz.co.nz" ), '_blank' );





      <fx:Style source="SerkoTutorials.css"/>

      <s:HGroup height="50" left="10" right="10" top="10">

      <mx:Image source="assets/logo.gif"/>


      <s:HGroup top="60" left="10" right="10" bottom="60">

      <s:Panel id="treePanel" width="30%" height="100%" skinClass="skins.TreePanelSkin">

      <mx:Tree width="100%" height="100%" dataProvider="{datalist}" labelField="@name" change="poplulateViewer(event)"  id="moduleTree" color="#000000" borderStyle="none"/>


      <s:Panel id="playerPanel" width="100%" height="100%" skinClass="skins.PlayerPanelSkin">

      <s:VideoPlayer id="player" width="776" height="582" skinClass="skins.CustomVideoPlayerSkin" />



      <s:HGroup height="40" bottom="10" left="10" right="10">




      Any help would be hugely appreciated.

          Out of curiosity, what does your "assets/data.xml" file look like?

              Try changing your code to this:


              player.source = selectedNode.@file.toString();


              I believe you were trying to do something like player.source(selectedNode.@file);

                Peter, thank you so much!


                I didn't think of putting to string as I hadn't needed to do it in Flex 3 with video object there.


                Thanks heaps.
