comment out the single line myVideo.stop() and retest. do your main page buttons continue to work ?
Hey Kglad - Thanks a lot for helping me with this.
By 'comment out' do you mean, pull the stop(); out of the function? I just tried that and the problem remains. I actually just realized that the buttons stop work regardless of the stop() command. I guess it must be connected to the video itself...?
i'd meant to use:
that was intended to confirm that your buttons would stop working despite commenting-out that line of code and intended to confirm something else is causing the problem.
the are too many possibilities to pinpoint the problem but one of the most common would be that between a frame where you buttons work and the frame where they stop working, the timeline has moved into a frame where the buttons didn't exist.
Hi kglad -- that's a good call, but because of the way I set up my timeline, I can't see how that could be the case. I am using a "labels" layer, so I am telling my event listener to GotoAndPlay a particular label, seemingly preventing the timeline from jumping to frame without button commands.
I'm pretty sure it has something to do with the video because all of my buttons work, except when I am navigating away from a video clip.
Am I missing something really obvious? I'm something of an AS3 kindergardener.
to test, put your buttons (temporarily) in a layer by themselves in frame 1 of the main timeline and extend their frames across your entire main timeline. that way you'll know they must exist in every frame. retest. do they work and then stop working?
