I have been asked to look in to a video based flash
interface. The basic idea is that four figures walk on to the stage
and then settle in to loops until the user clicks one. The selected
figure then steps forward and delivers a short speech to camera
while the other figures step back out of the frame.
The figures will all be against a plane white background and
has been suggested that we could shoot this as four separate clips
to make the looping part easier (we will have fairly limited time
with each subject and they will not be actors).
My question is this:
Is it possible to load four individual FLVs, make them start
playing at the same time and then play through together?
My gut feeling is that there are gonna be syncing issues due
to variable download speeds and bandwidths and other unknowns but I
have little experience of using video this way and would appreciate
any comments or advice on the subject.
