I have a client who wants their video as a flash streaming swf file. I edited the video in premiere pro and imported it into Sorenson Squeeze where I added a template player (shipped with Squeeze) and exported as a Flash swf.
After the client adds the video to their website, and you click on the link to play the video, the play button does not appear until the whole video has downloaded. The client would like the play button to appear right away with the option to start playing the video as it is still downloading.
I'm quite new to Flash and have checked out the Squeeze training DVD as well as some Flash training, but I haven't found anything dealing with this situation.
Any thoughts? Thanks in advance for any help.
You have to set the swf file to auto play when you create it and there should be a progressive download feature you can also activate. I'm not familiar with the new Adobe tools or Squeeze, but thats how its done in Flix from On2, the people who make the Flash engine for all these products.
