I think you have a few options here:
1) You could use the OSMF Syndication library, it supports ATOM and RSS feed formats and creates a nice document object model of your feed. You could use the DOM it creates to create your SerialElement. This is more of a manual approach.
2) You could use the OSMF SMIL plugin, it supports the image and duration SMIL tags. You could tell the Strobe player to load the plugin and give it the resource to your SMIL file. All you need to do, is create the proper SMIL file to do this.
Charles, I am trying to run the AkamaiPluginSample that is included with the latest version of OSMF (1.5s03), and after importing all its dependencies, I get an error on this line trying to load the font Verdana (I am on a Mac):
Cannot embed local font 'Verdana' as CFF. The CSS @font-face 'local()' syntax is not supported.
I did some digging and tried a couple of fixes. I tried to add this to the <compiler> section of the build file:
That doesnt work, even though I have verdana.ttf in there, as well as being installed on the system.
I also tried changing the namespace in the Application to:
and I get the error:
Unable to resolve MXML language version. Please specify the language namespace on the root document tag.
I am trying to build with the Flex 4.5 SDK.
