    Embed flv instead of linking?

    VikingTheBrent

      Is there a way to embed flv files (the same way images are embeded) within the published SWF? From this thread I see the default behavior is to link to flv files, I'm just wondering if there is a way to change that behavior without bringing the code into Flash Builder (which I do not own).

       

      Thanks for any insight,

          How large are the video files you want to embed in your Flash Catalyst project? The reason that they are kept external is to reduce initial swf file download. I don't think this setting can be changed within Flash Catalyst. You will have to take the project into Flash Builder to change this. But be warned, the user experience may not be what you want. I would test it on the real server first. You might need to introduce a better preloader to the project to offset the increased download time.
