Michael WilfongSeemless Video in Flash
by on Jun 15, 2009 at 4:56:13 pm

I am working on an interactive presentation in Flash. The presentation is video contained within flash. I have built custom animations (Audio Included) in AfterEffects to play back-to-back seamlessly in Flash.(Last frame of video 1 matches first frame of video 2) It is supposed to look seamless, however, I am getting flashes of white at the beginning of some clips. The flashes are maybe two seconds long.

I am using Flash CS3 and I have tried importing the videos several different ways (as progressive download, and as embedding which works much better). The videos are encoded out of Flash Video Encoder at 3500Kb with keyrames every 15 frames and a framrate of 30FPS.

Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Michael W.

hi michael -
i have worked on that very problem coming up with various solutions. the way that i accomplish that best, is not necessarialy the most popular way.

i'll have 2 instances of the FLVPlayback component ( one called flvPlayer 1, the other flvPlayer2 ) with flvPlayer1 positioned exactly on top of flvPlayer2. player2 is loaded but has autoPlay set to false.
then, on COMPLETE playing of player 1, player 2 plays,and player 1 visibility s turned off, or removedChild etc. it works seamlessly for me.

import fl.video.FLVPlayback;
import fl.video.VideoEvent;

flvPlayer1.source="video1.flv";
flvPlayer2.source="video2.flv";
flvPlayer2.autoPlay=false;

flvPlayer.addEventListener(VideoEvent.COMPLETE, myFunction );

function myFunction(event:VideoEvent):void{
{flvPlayer2.play();flvPlayer.stop();flvPlayer1.visible=false;}
}



hope that helps
