Flash Video Playlist
Hello I followed a tutorial I found on Adobe to create a dynamic video playlist and all worked ok then I wanted to add captions to my video and the code they suggested to add to the actionscript made the captions button on the skin disappear. The captions played ok but the button on the skin was not there any longer and the captions just automatically played. I would like to use the captions button on the skin to control each of the captions for the respective videos. Here's the as file . .
any ideas on how I can retain that video caption button on the skin I choose?
can you add a link to the tutorial you looked at?
are you coding your player or using a component, and therefore a component 'skin' with a caption button?
Here's the tutorial
This played without a hitch and all worked fine. Then I added some captions from this link . . .

When I added the local variable "ttURL" to the constructor of the VideoPlaylist class the caption button, I believe from the swf, disappeared.
Also if it's helpful here is a link to my files and sample playlist
Let me know if I can be of greater assistance or perhaps provide you with more information for my ultimate edification.
appreciate your help!
i'm not seeing the 2nd tutorial ( it is her blog, but where is that tutorial ??)
and no link toyour files
Here's that second link again. I was behind a firewall and couldn't verify this was the right one
and that link I didn't supply . . . . duh is
Thanks again Demetri
that is way too many files for me to look through! the thing that i am initially seeing though, is that she uses a video component that does not have a caption button, and instead adds a separate FLVPlayback Captioning component to the file.
you might want to go back into your files, and swap out the skion you chose for one without a caption button, and add a button like she does. if that works, then we can assume there is some bug or conflict that was causing the issue. if not, further trouble shooting would be in order to double check your code against the source code.
do try swapping it out, and please let us know what you find out.
