So I have a problem with the FLVPlayback. I'm using a
customized version of the SteelOverPlaySeekMute skin, and it works
very well. The only problem is, that Macromedia coded the
FLVPlayback.skinAutoHide poorly, in that it only hides when an
onRollOut is triggered for your FLVPlayback. However, if the
FLVPlayback is the same size as your Stage, this will NEVER get
triggered. I'm finding a way around this by using a MouseListener
with a setInterval to hide the controls by changing the
FLVPlayback.skin to an empty string, and then back to my custom
skin when the mouse moves again. However this is a very clunky
method of handling it, and when the skin first loads back again
after hiding, the playback handle is at the begining and then jumps
to the right position. It's kinda ugly.
So is there any way to reference my skin object so I can set
the _alpha property or something, or do I need to go and code my
own custom UI?
