Re: Simple Multi-Video Player in AS2
by francois galland
Hello Tony,
Thanks a lot for the step to step tuto. I like it. I'm not an expert but I could get it to work.
However, i tried to insert it in Dreamweaver, to create a webpage.The first video works, then I get to the second one, and i cannot return to the first one or get to the others. How come ?
Also, your exemple works has six videos. Should it be ok with ten videos or more ?
The first video opens up up by itself. Is there any script that would allowto open the first video only when i click on its button?
I have tried a bunch of things but couldnt do it.
Thank you very much for your patience in answering to me.
Regards,
Francois

This was a great tutorial. However I am having some sizing issues. Not all of my videos are the same size due to the different media they are viewed on.

When I run the video player each time I click on a video they get smaller and smaller...until they are gone.

Do you all have any ideas or solutions?

Thank you
George
AMAZING! thanks so much!

Extending your simple mutli-video player in AS2
by Ian Sweet
Thanks for your video. It was great and easy to follow. Of course I now want to do more... as always when you whet your appetite. I have tried to link the button clicks to bring up graphics on the screen which give information about the video. I have created a graphic and then tried to call this with the same mouse click: I
ve called it TipHeader and tried this in the same function:

Pub01_btn.onRelease = function() {
PubPlayer.contentPath = "RSGTips/RSGT1.flv";
TipHeader.contentPath = "RSG Tip 1/T1Header.jpg";
};


Doesn't work so must be something wrong. Can you help?
Multi Video Player help
by Robin John
Thanks Tony for this tutorial. I am new in flash and I need more help on this. I want to make this video files play continously one after other. They should also play if you click on the buttons. Also i need to display a description of the movie on top of the video when you mouseover the particular button. Can you please guide me on this?

Thanks in advance, Robin

This is a fantasticly (is that a word?) simple approach for creating a dynamic video player without getting too involved with scripting and xml. If you are working with only a few clips, use this method to get your dynamic video player online. Great job Tony.

Michael looks for - and finds - answers within Adobe's Edge Animate.
