did you tick "embed video in swf and play in timeline" when you were importing? or, did you tick progressive download?
I think Progressive Download was ticked by default... and I left it alone...
I thought that was the right one to make it start playing automatically when someone went to the web page.
Thanks for any help.
then you'll need to use actionscript. are you publishing for as2 or as3?
click on the flvplayback component that's on stage in your fla and, in the properties panel assign an instance name (say flv) and in the actions panel paste:
kglad, I really appriceate the help !
I clicked on the flvplayback component that's on stage in your fla and, in the properties panel assigned an instance name of FlvLoop...
Then to the right of the Propeties Panel I clicke on the "arrow" icon with the flyout of "Edit the Action Script for this Object"
The Actions Window opens BUT has the message...
Current Selection cannot have actions applied to it.
click off-stage or on an empty part of the stage. and, use your name instead of flv in the code.
Given your Code:
When you say use "my name instead of flv in the code" do you mean use the name of my project or the name of my flv video file?
My "project" is named zzz so I have these files...
So If I used the project name instead of flv in your code I would get...
Is this correct?
Thanks again kglad !!
you said you used FlvLoop instead of flv. if so, use FlvLoop instead of flv in the code.
It's an easy action script to insert in the file!
Dadgummit Kglad... it worked !!!
After I realized that Action Script 3 is case sensitive
Thanks again for the kind assistance.
Kglad, One final question on this topic.
I assume that when the video "loops" it is re-playing the FLV file from the client machine... and not asking the server to send it again... correct?
as long as the client has their browser's cache enabled yes, the flv is retrieved from the cache.
I would guess that cache enabled is the default setting in most browsers... would you agree?
Meaning a user would deliberately have to go to the trouble of turning it off... which most probably would not...
Meaning... it should loop from the local client machine... and not from the server...
yes, everyone but web developers would have their cache enabled.
