If you don't mind, I need some help making a Flash video player...

2009-03-05 08:02:33 by VillainousTurtleSLC

Hi guys. If anyone has the expertise or can show me a place where I can download a video player that has the following:

-play button which once it has been depressed will turn into a pause button.
-skip forward and backward buttons
-progress bar so youcan see how much of the video has been played
-a time passed/duration
-volume control

The video doesn't need to be deployed to a web server it can just be embedded in the flash. I know about the FLV Playback component, and it seems to have just about all of this. However, I think it requires you to deploy the video to a server and I don't know if you can just embed the video into the flash. Also, is it possible to modify the look of the FLV Playback component?

Any links or help are GREATLY APPRECIATED!

I hope this isn't a dumb question!

What do you need this for? Anyways, you can embed an FLV into Flash and everything should export fine. You should just download the source files from gotoAndLearn and see how it's done.

I normally just use Windows Media Player.

Have you tried downloading a codec pack such as K-lite, or CCCP?

No I need to make it so I can put it on a website and play a video tha%u2020 I made. Also, I have to make a custom skin for it.
