Changing the framerate playback of VideoFile in AS3 / Air App

Hi, I'm trying to reproduce a video file using AIR.

I'm trying to set the framerate of the playback using the import flash.net.NetStream and flash.media.Video, specifically the NetStream.receiveVideoFPS(fps:Number) but it is not working.

Please help,

Thanks.

	import flash.display.Sprite;
	import flash.events.NetStatusEvent;
	import flash.events.SecurityErrorEvent;
	import flash.events.AsyncErrorEvent;

	import flash.ui.Keyboard;
	import flash.net.NetConnection;
	import flash.net.NetStream;
	import flash.media.Video;

As per my understanding,

NetStream.receiveVideoFPS() method works only for the Streaming server video stream.
this method is available only to clients subscribed to the specified stream, not to the stream's publisher.

If you pass a value to the FPS parameter to limit the frame rate of the video, the RTMP server attempts to reduce the frame rate while preserving the integrity of the video. The server sends the minimum number of frames needed to satisfy the desired rate between every two keyframes.

here in your code,  there is no RTMP server in play, your code is not actually connecting to any Media server.
following line of code shows that you are loading video as progressive download not streaming download.

 connection.connect(null);


I hope it would be clear..

Ohhhh.....

Funny, cause I'm not using a Streaming Video Server.  I'm just loading the file from the local hard disk.   All I need to do is slow-down or speed-up the video ?  

I thought that using fps would be the way to go here.
