Adding play/stop feature to a Flash video
Posted on 2008-10-06
I'm completely new to Flash. I have a flash video that I want to add to the website I'm working on. I would like to add some functionality to the video. On several websites I've seen, such as when someone inserts a youtube video into their blog, the video is a bit greyed out with a grey transparent play button sitting ontop the video. Also I have seen where if you hover your mouse over the video, pause/stop options will pop up allowing the user to stop the video if they wish. How is this play/pause/stop functionality accomplished?
Note, having a constantly visible play/pause/stop option bar sitting above/below the video is not an option in this current circumstance.
Thanks for the help,
