I watch shows and videos on web sites like abc.com, cbs.com and hulu.com. Often the web site uses Flash Player to display these videos. I wrote a plug-in for my Firefox web browser to log what I have watched or (if I had to stop) where I left off. However, I have been unable to find how to query the Flash Player for the video's name or status. Any ideas?
Just a random thought for getting video file name.
Whenever a flash movie loads(or gives a server call) a video u can check the firebug plugin it will show u the link of the actual file.
Maybe if there is some way you can read that firebug stream and get the filename.
For status of the player i think you need to communicate with the flash swf file itself.
