I have discovered that I can easily convert my MP4 files into SWF files, and add the ActiveX control to my Excel 2016 XLSM file, but I have a couple of questions I'm hoping can be answered here:
1. I want a separate control to be placed on TOP of the SWF control, and have it be visible and available for use. I read that it is possible to set the ZMode to "Transparent" and that should allow me to accomplish this, but even when playing with the ZOrder property, I'm not having much success in this regard. What's particularly interesting here is shown in the attached example XLSM file. You'll see that if you move the mouse wheel that my command button briefly becomes visible, but once the movement stops, the buttons disappears.
2. I want to be able to SCALE the SWF video to fit inside the frame, and eliminate all white space. Both the original SWF file and its control have a 4:3 display ratio so I'm hoping this is possible. Ultimately, if we can solve Question #1, I would like to have the command buttons be on top of the SWF video and be clickable as well.
