Redirecting after FLV plays

I have a flash video that plays and all I want to do is get it to redirect to a different page once it is done playing.

There is a rather large .js file, AC_RunActiveContent.js and I'm not exactly sure on how or what to modify here.

Here's a snippit of the html on the page that has the flash:

<script type="text/javascript">
AC_FL_RunContent( 'codebase','http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0','width','480','height','360','id','FLVPlayer','src','video5','flashvars','&MM_ComponentVersion=1&skinName=Clear_Skin_3&streamName=FLVFiles/video5&autoPlay=true&autoRewind=false','quality','high','scale','noscale','name','FLVPlayer','salign','lt','pluginspage','http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash','movie','video5' ); //end AC code
</script><noscript><object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0" width="480" height="360" id="FLVPlayer" >
  <param name="movie" value="video5.swf" />
  <param name="salign" value="lt" />
  <param name="quality" value="high" />
  <param name="scale" value="noscale" />
  <param name="FlashVars" value="&MM_ComponentVersion=1&skinName=Clear_Skin_3&streamName=FLVFiles/video5&autoPlay=true&autoRewind=false" />
  <embed src="video5.swf" flashvars="&MM_ComponentVersion=1&skinName=Clear_Skin_3&streamName=FLVFiles/video5&autoPlay=true&autoRewind=false" quality="high" scale="noscale" width="480" height="360" name="FLVPlayer" salign="LT" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" />
</object></noscript>

Thanks.

Try this: open flash and on the component that plays the flv file put this:

on(complete){
      getURL("http://www.google.com","_self");
      }

It should work.

cwickens,

unfortunately, I was given these "already created files" from a user who was using Dreamweaver.  So, I don't have access to flash -- just the couple of files that was handed me...this is an "after-creation" request from one of our staff.

Any other ideas here?

ahhhh, that will prove difficult, though not impossible.  You will need to decompile the SWF in order to add the AS to the component.  I have used SoThink's SWFDecompiler with good success and there are a few others out there.

If you have Flash 8, you could also just recreate the SWF, it would not be difficult if you just need to play the video file.

 I don't know of any way to access the player (that sits inside the SWF playing the FLV) to do a getURL with JScript.

Hi ripple123,

Don't use the DW auto-generated stuff for this.  Get the FLV and then get this Flash Video Player:

http://www.jeroenwijering.com/?item=JW_FLV_Player

It supports far more options than the other one and I believe you can pass a URL to it to redirect at the end.
