Can you provide some more details about your use case?
Do you do the conversion of the StrobeMediaPlayback to a flex component because you need to control it's width and height?
Do you need to need to control the StrobeMediaPlayback as an OSMF MediaElement by adding custom Traits on top of it?
Do you need to control a specific SWF for which you create custom Traits and you play it using a flex component build on top of StrobeMediaPlayback?
Thanks Andrian for the quick response.
1. Yes, I need to be able to control the width and height of the media.
2. Additional traits (play, seek, time and audio) must be added to the SWFElement or a subclass.
3. Yes, a flex component built on top of OSMF or StrobeMedia would be great, not sure I answered this question correctly.
Ultimately, I need to be able to control .swfs just like video (play, seek, time, and audio) within a Flex application (Flex 3 at this time). We currently have a player that does this albeit not the best looking thing and we wanted to begin using the OSMF as it provides more flexibility than our current player. We have chosen StrobeMediaPlayback as we like the ControlBar and do not have the time to create the UI for a control bar
To add the additional traits, I used the NetStreamTraitNameHere as examples to add the functionality to the SWFElement. I was able to get the Audio piece working without issue as it does not affect the visual elements of the player; however my issues with the play, pause, resume and seek issues with scrub bar I am finding difficult to resolve.
If you need my project to take a peek at the rest of the code, that can easily be arranged.
I hope I have provided you with enough information to at least point me in the right direction. I have looked through several pieces of documentation and different examples online and apparently I am overlooking something. Knowing my luck it is something very small that I am just not seeing.
I'm finding myself in the same situation but not as far along. I need exactly the features you describe for a player I'm writing for online courseware, and I'm contemplating implementing play, seek, and time traits for SWFElement. Did you ever figure out the solution to your dilemma, and if so do you have any advice you might offer me in this undertaking?
