i´m total newby flash user. i have an older application that is written in AS1 and runs in flashplayer 5. now i have some new video files (flv or mov) that should be started out of this application. the problem is that if i change the publish options to a flash player higher than version 5 i get many errors in the debugger window. so i have to find a solution to play these videos with the version 5 of the player
my idea was to call a new swf file out of my old application that could be published for a higher version than 5 but i don´t know how to do this. at the moment i have a script that listens to keyboard inputs and takes action if a certain key is pressed. so it would be nice if i could past some actionscript that uses this function to call the video. one thing - the whole application runs on my local machine (OS X) - so it is not neccecary that the solution works with the internet. i´m able to use a CS3 version of flash to build the changes.
folks you would be greate if you could help me out of this jungel !
