I'd like to post some flash video up on my site similiar to how Apple's trailer site is setup. Here's an example of what I'm talking about.
Ultimately, I'd like the end-user to be able to click on a button/icon and a video will pop up in the forefront and all parts of the page surrounding the video will dim down. Does anyone know where I can find the code or a tutorial to show me how to do something like this? I need to be able to do it using AS2 for the scripting.
check the flvplayback component. it will allow you to do what you want.
Definitely on the right track, although this blog and most of the instructions is in Italian. No biggie, but I think it also applies to still pics, not videos. I did find a site, www.videolightbox.com, that has a program that does exactly what I'm looking for--it's 50 bucks though for commercial use, which is what I need it for. Wonder how difficult it would be to just build something similiar from scratch.
