help stop FLV loading - i have searched forums, cant find answer
on Dec 16, 2008 at 9:34:51 pm

Hi there, just FYI im working with AS2,

I have an embedded FLV that is about 5min long. When the user presses a button the FLV skips to a certain point in the video. It works great when tested in Flash. It works great when uploaded, EXCEPT, the FLV is so large that it waits for the entire thing to be loaded before the user is able to hit the button. When I wait for it to load all the way, then press the button it is fine.

So, to try and solve this, I made the part it has to jump to, a separate video that is smaller (but still in the same timeline, they have to be I cant have the page reload), so it doesn't have to wait for the entire thing to load. But, I have found this doesn't work either. My code right now is:

on (release){
FLV.LOADING.stop("_rodfinal_.flv");
gotoAndPlay("blinked");
}

It says there is no errors in flash, but online it still takes forever. (blink is a frame label)(_rodfinal_.flv is the first video i want to stop)

Please Help - Do you think the second video isn't loaded yet too? Any code you can recommend?

Thank you!
