          still no answer?
          I am a noob and sorry for that, but I want to learn
          I explain what I can do now:
          I import a projet like StrobeMediaPlayer 1.5 full and I can modify a lot of things and get some variables that I need
          I can also create a simple player, and I can load a plugin containing some buttons to play, stop, pause and so, but is in swc
          I learned to create a simple swc from flash (that file containing the buttons)
          If I want to load a simple swf like plugin in my simple player, I cant, and I dont know why
          I want just to read a variable from the plug in and send a variable to the plugin, but I cant
          Is there any example or anyone that can help me?
          I am loading with

             var resource:URLResource = new URLResource("sample.swf");
             // Load the plug-in SWF.
            private function onPluginLoad(event:MediaFactoryEvent):void
             trace("Plugin loaded");
            private function onPluginLoadError(event:MediaFactoryEvent):void
             trace("Plugin not loaded");

          when I run the project, initplayer() doesnt work
          what I am doing wrong?
          maybe the problem is in the swf?
          is better swc?
          thanx a lot

            Please use the Plugin developer's guide that you can find in the OSMF documentation - it will help you a lot.


            Also, please check the plugin examples that were provided.


            To pass values to and from a plugin you will could use metadata.

              Hi Silviu

              thanks for the answer

              As I wrote I am reading and following a lots of tutorials, and I am learning a lot

              but I cant send or receive any data using metadata.

              Of course, I am doing things wrong

              As I wrote I am noob and still learning.

              Can You write here any sinple example of how to send or receive any data between player and the plugin?

              Thanks a lot

                You might set resource-level metadata, like this:

                                var metadata:Metadata  = new Metadata();
                                metadata.addValue("key", "value");


                and read it from the plugin with getMetadataValue("namespace.org");


                Does this help?
