Am I missing something? I thought things were supposed to be easier.
I'm creating an AIR application for a client with heavy embedded video.
I have chewed up days on trying to get stuff to work, mostly creating a graphics heavy component that I can use in the AIR (Flex) app.
Just clicking the magic "Convert Symbol to Flex Component" command won't do it if you have created your own .as class for the symbol, because it won't compile unless you extend the UIMovieClip class. Good luck trying to find it in the namespace.
After hours I found where to download the Flex Component Kit that contains the swc that gives you the UIMovieClip class.
