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:
as the source.
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.
