I am working on a flash slide show and want to use an external flv. I can get it playing in the show, but it is loaded and started with everything else, so when you come to the slide with the flv, it is already playing. I know that happens due to the nature of the slide show format, where all timelines are started at once. Is there a way to code the Netstream so that it only plays when the slide is revealed?
I have tried to use if/else with currentSlide, but to no avail. I was trying this in the on (reveal) section:
Did you get this figured out? I would think that you could add a pause button or something to stop playback.
I see that ns.play("smsFingerPrint.flv"); it is by default playing this .flv. Lee Brimelow on the gotoandlearn.com site has some video tutorials and I think discusses how to stop NS from playing automatically.
Also, look up in the documentation the methods of netStream and probably there is a pause method which I see in your script anyway.
Write a simple function and put a pause button on the stage and try and start/stop it with that.
I know I'm know telling you a lot of specifics but those are some of my thoughts.
