Have Flex application read WordPress username
Posted on 2010-08-26
I have to start saying that I'm absolutely new to Flex and AS but I'm a quick learner and very enthusiast.
I want to make my own FLV movies player for my CMS (WordPress powered) and one of the functions I want is a text chat. There will be live streams and I want viewers to send comments and questions to the presenter of the show, but only to registered members.
Just as information, I'm using a Wowza Media Server to handle both videos and text chat.
I've already have an example of a simple chat application made in Flex that connects to my server and works pretty well so I have the "base" for the application. I do need to modify it so people don't have to enter the server's address they want to connect to (just mine) and take the nickname out putting the WordPress username automatically in there (and graying out the chat if the visitor is not a registered member).
Anyone knows how to do this?
