You can load external .flv files which is placed on your web server. You have to add a small amount of AS3 code into your flash document. Please click on the below link
Please use the sample code which is provided in the bottom of the page. In the code, you will find a line
private var videoURL:String = "Video.flv";
In the above line, instead of "Video.flv", you have to give your webserver path like http://www.domainname.com/foldername/videofilename.flv
(The above code does the progressive download of an video)
You can play the video through progressive download, by click on an image. To achieve that, you need to place the above code inside the mouse click function of an image.
Thanks for that reply. I'll test that out.
I still wish I could figure out why I can't seem to just embed the .mov files from my webspace.... I mean, it works, but it doesn't progressively download. That's why I'm looking into alternatives, but ultimately I would really like to just use embedded vids just to keep it simple.
Anyone have any idea why a embedded .mov file wouldn't progressively download (even thought it was exported as a Progressive Download With Compressed Headers from AfterEffects)?
