The problem with this is that it takes a second or so before the width and heights are set and then I have no video, only audio.
So what I want to do is to pause the the video on the first frame until every parameter is set.
We were discussing this sort of thing on another forum recently and different people were having different rates of sucess pausing videos as soon as the NetStream was connected. The people who were successful simply put "ns.pause();" directly after the "ns.play("Sample.flv");" code, then after your resize, just put "ns.pause();" again to start your video playing.
For some users, the video would connect and play for a bit over 1/2 second before it stopped however, and we never figured out quite why.
I'm filling a need. Without me there would be no bad examples.
I still havent found any good solution for this problem. I've tried what you suggested, but it didn't work out as I hoped. Could you please post the link to the other forum you discussed this subject? I would appriciate all the information I can get about this subject.
