    Play video from byte stream? (load video from local container / archive).

    patniemeyer-adobe

      I'd like to bundle video and other media items in a container / archive file and play it from an AIR app...  Essentially I'd like to make my own distribution format that supports video plus attached files, etc.

       

      So, coming from the Java world I thought I might be able to construct a stream and read the bytes from the correct part of my container file.  But I'm not sure if I can actually do that with the Flash APIs.  I see that the Video component works with NetConnection objects, but it's not clear to me if I can do anything with these.

       

      Can anyone tell me if what I want to do is possible?

       

       

      thanks,
