    Enable smoothing on VideoDisplay

    Yue_Hong Level 1



      When playback a video in Flex air application, the video looks pixel and the edges is not smooth. I have do some searching for example, but all examples are for Flex 3 with MX videodisplay, not spark videodisplay. I tried it and I get the error message "Error exist in the project: SWF Loader". I don't have SWF loader in that project.


      Here is my code:


      <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
      <s:WindowedApplication xmlns:fx="http://ns.adobe.com/mxml/2009"
                             xmlns:mx="library://ns.adobe.com/flex/mx" xmlns:custom="custom.*">
                  import mx.controls.Alert;
                  import org.osmf.events.TimeEvent;


                  protected function videodisplay1_completeHandler(event:TimeEvent):void
                      Alert.show("The Video Playback completed.");


              <!-- Place non-visual elements (e.g., services, value objects) here -->
          <!--<s:VideoDisplay source="video/00_02_setup.mov" complete="videodisplay1_completeHandler(event)" right="0" left="0" top="0" bottom="0"/>-->

          <custom:SmoothVideoDisplay source="video/00_02_setup.mov" smoothing="true"/>


      ------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ------------------

      package custom { 
          import mx.controls.VideoDisplay;
          import mx.core.mx_internal;
          use namespace mx_internal;
          public class SmoothVideoDisplay extends VideoDisplay
              private var _smoothing:Boolean = false;
              public function SmoothVideoDisplay()
              public function set smoothing(val:Boolean):void{
                  if (val == _smoothing) return;
                  _smoothing = val;
                  videoPlayer.smoothing = _smoothing;
              public function get smoothing():Boolean{
                  return _smoothing;



      How can I solve the problem?  How can I have the good video quality playback in flex? Thanks.
