FLV and timeline playback controls
Posted on 2005-04-13
I originally embedded some video into a presentation. It is accompanied by text fading in and out to supplement the information being presented by the speaker in the video. Because both the text and video were on the timeline, I used one set of buttons to control the timeline’s playback, thus controlling both the embedded video and the text with the same buttons. The video is too long and I am getting all of the token audio synch problems associated with long embedded video clips. I recently upgraded to Flash MX 2004 Professional and purchased Sorenson Squeeze to create FLV files easily. I have converted the embedded video to an FLV for smoother playback.
How can I control this external FLV and its corresponding text on the timeline with a single set of buttons?
So far, I’ve tried playing the external FLV through component Display and Playback but have been unable to figure out how to then use a single set of buttons to also control the corresponding text playing on the timeline.
I made this worth the full 500 because I really need an answer soon!
