I have a bunch of different .mov files at the same level as my flash movie. I would like to be able to play these files from some area within the flash movie, with some buttons to move between the videos.

It seems like you can embed the movie files now, but I am not sure how to play one without launching quicktime as a separate application.

Is this at all possible?

Thanks,
Dan

Turns out that yes it is possible.

1. Create a new movie
2. In the library create a new Video, set the type to action script controlled.
3. Drag the video object to the stage and give it a name
4. Open the actions menu and put in the following:

code:
var nc:NetConnection = new NetConnection();
nc.connect(null);
var ns:NetStream = new NetStream(nc);
myVideo.attachNetStream(ns);

var listener :Object = new Object();
listener.onMetaData = function (md:Object):void{};
ns.client = listener;

ns.play("Sample.mov");



5. Test and watch your movie.

Thanks go to the following tutorial, which I abbreviated above:

Thanks for the post. I wasn't able to get it to work. Followed all instructions. Only changes: "Sample.mov" -> match name of QT I used and the size of the video player to match. No errors when publishing, the page loads in Safari, but the video does not appear or play.

Any trouble-shooting advice?

Thanks in advance

What is and where in this code to add a pause/play, seeker, and volume componets code?

var nc:NetConnection = new NetConnection();
nc.connect(null);
var ns:NetStream = new NetStream(nc);
myVideo.attachNetStream(ns);

Thanks for the code, works great, but I have two questions.

1. How do you unload or stop NetConnection? My video keeps playing

2. Is there a way to have an event listener to tell when the video stops?

Thanks
Garrett

FYI: this is what I found that works:

// code to stop movie
ns.addEventListener(NetStatusEvent.NET_STATUS, ns_onPlayStatus)

function ns_onPlayStatus(event:NetStatusEvent):void {
if (event.info.code == "NetStream.Play.Stop") {
ns.close();
gotoAndPlay("load_bkgd");
trace("now what?")
}
}

Just use Flowplayer.
