Media Playback component continuous playback



  • 1. Picture shows through under movie
    Hi, I'm having a problem with a flash movie. The screen opens with graphics and some text on it, then I have people click a button to open a movie that plays over the rest of the elements on the screen. The movie is on the screen when you first arrive--there is a blank first frame. However, when I load the movie, sometimes a graphic or a seemingly random piece of text from the parent screen floats over the movie. Any ideas about how to fix this? Thanks, chi chica
  • 2. Bizzare font embedding problem with the number 4!
    Hi, I have a flash application that I am making that involves embedding pixel fonts. I cam across a very strange bug that I cannot seem to figure out. I have a dynamic text field that is linked to a variable that is set in Action script. It is using the pixel font "FFF Harmony" thta I got from one of the major pixelfont websites. This field is used to show the user which record out of a dataset they are viewing. It is always in the format of "X of Y". Examples("0 of 0", "1 of 7", "2 of 7", etc.) I embedded the font by selecting the "all numeral 0-9" option and then added " of" in the field at the bottem. The font works fine except when there is an odd number of fours, in which case it will became anti-aliased. I detemerined this from a lot of experimenting. To help illustrate what I am trying to say I will list what I have found to appear aliased, and what does not. Displays correctly: "0 of 0" "1 of 7" "2 of 7" "4 of 4" "5 of 7" "6 of 7" "7 of 7" Appears anti-aliased: "4 of 7" "4 of 44" I am completly stumped, I have even tried adding "4" to the field in the embedded dialog options. Has anybody see anything like this be4 ??? (sorry.. just got 4 on the brain :) )
  • 3. run timeline backwards?
    Is this doable? Is it possible to run the timeline backwards? So, for example, if I fade-in an image between frames 0-12, can I put some sort of command that will then run frames 12 to 0 (which would cause the image to fade out?) I know I could select frames 0-12 and then paste a copy and reverse them... but I'm more interested if I can actually tell flash to play backwards. Just wondering. I guess I would have heard about this already... if it were possible. @lex
  • 4. Tween question
    Hey all, I have a pretty basic question. At least I hope it is. When I bring in JPg. or Png. files and tween them with the alpha fade, I sometimes get the picture moving in the middle, as if the picture had a fold or something. The picture does not move per say, but the middle of the pic does. Not really sure what causes that.. Any help would be great. THanks D

    You may try to change your keyboard settings when using flash... But it is much easier with WIN2K or XP....

Media Playback component continuous playback

Postby AdrianaV » Tue, 09 Aug 2005 06:08:30 GMT

I want to have MP3s continuously play one after the other with the Media 
Playback component using the List component as the source of MP3's content 
path.  Is it possible to continously playback one after the other?

 Thank you

1.Media slider for Media Playback component


I'm working with a .flv that is pretty short and will be used for doing a 360 view of an object; therefore, the time slider is being used a lot to control what angle is visible.  My problem is when I use the slider it only lets me view 2 or 3 different angles.  I'm wondering if there is a way to decrease the increment where it will advance the video.  If anyone knows, it would be a big help.


2.Using XML, Tree Component with SWF's for continuous playback

I'm using the tree component as a menu that when a topic within it is selected 
it loads an swf file onto the main timeline.  The tree component & url's are 
being recognized through an XML file.  I'd like to be able to string all of the 
swf's together to playback continuously as well. (via use of a control bar on 
the main timeline)  But....the information & chapters in the tree is likely to 
change often (hence the XML file) so setting up goto and play frame x is not a 
very convenient option.  How can I / Is there a way to have a continuous 
playback of all the swf's, in sequential order from what is in the XML file? 

3.Loading FLV files with Media Playback component

I have tried to use the Media Playback component to load an external FLV 
file. When I test locally the movies play just fine but when I upload the 
whole lot I can't get the FLV files to come up at all, all I get is an empty 
component shell & no video.  I have waited long enough (nearly an hour) for 
the sample files (around 300k) to load & nothing happens, I have also 
checked that the files ARE on the server but they still don't load.

The server is a normal HTTP web server but I thought you could use the Media 
components with progressive download, is this true or do you need a FlashCom 
server to use this method?

Many thanks 

4.Changing the look of the Media Playback Component

Anyone out there with any sort of definitive guide or explanation for the best 
way to change the look of the Media Playback component. I have read all the 
tutorials about changing the theme of other components, but apparently they 
don't apply to the Media Playback component. I can't seem to find any reliable 
explanation from Macromedia about this process. I have tried copying and 
pasting the symbols from MediaComponents.fla into my movie and editing those, 
but it doesn't work. It either ignores the changes or Flash crashes on 
Publishing. Any help or info is much appreciated.

if that could work, heres what i tried... i am really confused on this and any
