Flash buffer animation for flv video
Posted on 2009-04-14
I have a flash project I am working on.
The end result is a SWF file that I embed into a web page. The SWF file loads a FLV file via progressive download and plays it.
My issue is that there is a delay of about 5-10 seconds while the video downloads/buffers before it begin playing.
How do i create a little animation that says something like "Please wait for video" during this loading phase and then disappears once the video begins playing??
I have had a look a few tutorials but they seem a bit advanced for what I'm trying to achieve.
Any advice or a link to a good tutorial would be awesome.
If you need more info please let me know.
