I have an application which is working with a lot of video-material. This application should only run offline, so it s an local application.
My idea was, that you save this application in a folder, which contains:
The videos are in the assets folder, and the sources to the different videos are parsed from an xml-file, which the user can load, while the application is running. The application is something like a framework, so it should be extendable with different xml-files.
Therefore, the videos are not embed, if you export your swf-file.
So, how can I tell the swf-file, that the video-destination starts in the folder, where the Application.swf is saved?
At the moment, videos sources are saved in the xml like this: "../assets/videofile.swf" But after compiling, I have to put the asset-folder on my desktop, that the videos are found.
Thanks for your help,
Well...shame about me...The solution is don't use " ../ " !!!
If you just start with the folder name (f.e. assets) , it locates this folder in the same directory as your swf...
..I ll get myself a new user name now
