I created a video in After Effects and rendered the output to an .flv, works fine when I embed in html and upload to my server. But now I'm having a problem with the next phase and that's adding a link to the flv using Cue points. I read the tutes on this but cannot get past the following.
First I tested this by importing the flv picking the skin for the player and importing straight to an html page in Dreamweaver.
I uploaded the html, flv and player to the server and it works great.
Now I need to add a url link to a certain frame of the flv and read the tute on how to import the flv into a new fla file, I see where I can scrub the timeline inside the flv and thought I was home free as all I had to do was upload and add the cue points.
But now I see where I had to take the .flv and import as video to a new fla and after importing the flv it clearly states that the component will only play locally.
After making sure the flv was on the server I uploaded the html and swf.
When I try to playback from the server I get a browser Which is named "Flash Player Installation" with a blank screen. Am I doing something wrong here?
Ahhh, it's amazing what reading something twice can do. I see now that in order for this to work in my case I needed to choose the "already deployed on a server option" as well as have all the files in a folder which I now see an extra swf which shows the controls.
If I'm correct all I have to do now is add the cue points and resave. Hopefully I did not speak to soon, let's see.
I'm going to start a fresh topic as I have answered this correctly
