Sounds like you are talking about two different things, a Flash video player and a means to make it pop-up.
Or is there a specific example that you want to emulate?
Post a link and we will take a look.
Thank you for your response. Yes, I did a poor job of describing what I am looking for. I will search for an example.
Here is HOPEFULLY a better description:
I have a flash page with some thumbnails. I want to be able to click on the thumbnail and a new video window pops up playing a video I have already uploaded to vimeo or youtube (if needed).
So it would not be embedded on the page, it would open on it's own pop-up page.
Something like this videolightbox thing: http://videolightbox.com/#demo but with vimeo. Would videolightbox even work on a flash page?
Thank you again!
I do not used videolightbox, but it may work just fine....but have created a similar effect on my own:
In AS3 :
For a pop-up window, you still need to create a second, actual html web page to hold the video player... embed Vimeo or whatever player you want.
Best of luck!
Adninjastrator, great info!
I think you have won me over with the over-lay insstead of a new window.
It seems videolightbox will do this but do you know how I would insert this code into a Flash file? I am comfortable working with HTML in Dreamweaver but Flash is a new direction for me. Do you know where/how I would drop this code into a flash file?
I can't say for sure since I've never actually used videolightbox.
But I would suggest that you first build a regular html page and install lightbox there. Put a small thumbnail on the page (nothing else, leave rest of page blank) that will activate the videolightbox.
Get all that working first so you understand what's happening.
Best of luck!
