Actionscript 3 Video Player using XML for loading video details. This tutorial includes lessons on....
-Dynamically load video locations and details from an XML document. Easily update your player without republishing by simply editing file names like "video1.flv" in an XML document
-Create a scrollable playlist with details about each video and preview thumbnails. Your video details aren't limited to those in the preview example above, use as few or many as you choose.
- Use the Fullscreen button in the bottom right of the player to maximize the viewer's experience Viewers can kick back and watch your video take up their entire screen space. Hitting ESCAPE exits this mode.
- You always have the option to change the visual appearance of the player. Tint it, stretch it, brand it, add sparkles and unicorns! Do whatever you want to the player design.
- Use your choice of FLV components to control the video, without relying on preset skins. Components like the PLAY button, PAUSE button, etc can be added individually and positioned wherever you choose.
- Cue Points can be embedded in your FLV files to trigger events in your Flash file. Actionscript can listen out for specific points in your video and then trigger an event when that point occurs.
In a Hurry?.... The first hour shows how to create a Flash video file, apply quick playback skins for it, and then program a simple playlist. The next two hours demonstrate how to create the example above, which uses XML and sets up a scrollable playlist.
