    FLV source

    PakoCancun

      Hi

       

      I'm making a flash document and in one of the frames I wanna play a .f4v video

      I inserted a player component and in the source parameter I put the location of the video (where it is rightnow)

      but the thing is I wanna publish that document into SWF and burn it into a CD for distribution and I don't know

      what to put on the source parameter of the player component so it will play the video that I will add to the CD

       

      I don't want to embed the video because I'm worried about the size of the document I hope someone can help

       

      Source Now --->   /User/documents..../video.f4v

       

       

      P.S.: USING FLASH CS4 AND AS 3.0 IF IT HELPS

          use a relative path to your video.  so, for example, if your video is in the f4v subdirectory of the directory that contains your html and swf files, use:

           

          "f4v/video.f4v"

           

          as the source.

            Hey thanks

            but I tried what u said and it won't play anything

             

            and you also said something about an html file

            I don't have one do I need to have one?

             

            (sorry kind of new with flash)

              if everything was working when you used an absolute path and then failed when you used a relative path, your path or file name (or both) are incorrect.

               

              and no, you don't need an html file.
