Hey Toni,
This looks like it is a nice tutorial, in the video. But when I tried to download the project files there was only one file: "download_assets.zip" and inside that was only the 3 flv files, no flash projects, so no layers, buttons, etc. Am I missing something simple?

Thanks!

Tony,
Thanks, that did it. I was able to get the tutorial working like you did. While I was waiting for the files I tried to create it all on my own, ie, the buttons and video layer with object instances. I am pretty new and had a hard time of it, but got most of it. After I got your files and worked them I was able to go back to my first version and correct most of my errors. A few questions:
1. Your version seems to auto start the first flv, but mine does not. I have to push a button first. Did you set an auto start? or did you just press the first button real quick?
2. I had mistakenly put backslashes in my file paths, as I am on the PC, but Flash kept the path green so I thought I was okay, then nothing happened when I tested. How do I debug stuff like this in the future?
3. My buttons, had "Label" in the label and I could not get rid of it.
4. I could not get my Properties tab positions up in the Library & Components panel on the left like you had without the Properties tab staying really wide. How do you do that?
5. For my items 2-4, I wouldn't expect you to tutor me here in this topic, so would you have a few beginner tutorials you would recommend?
6. Thanks again for the files, don't forget to get them over on the tutorial page, when I checked just now the download_assets file was still there.
Thanks again, you're great!
Mike

Hi Michael.

As to your number 1.
When you select your instance of your movieplayer, (your .flv-file on the stage), then you have to check the parameter-tab for the instance.
The value for autoPlay have to be set to "true" then you should be homefree..! ;-)

Hope it did the trick..!

Rune

This was a great tutorial.
I'm wondering if it is possible to somehow 'hide' the first video so it doesn't start playing until you click a btn. In other words, I just want a blank background displayed, no video or skin.
Is this possible with this as or do I need to build it some other way.
Thanks in advance!
