Flv Player mixed with Xml

By | May 3, 2006

For a project I had to make a little flash player linked with XML.
It can also be used as a videofolio, at least I hope so 😉
Here it is:
[kml_flashembed movie=”http://www.metah.ch/blog/image/Flvplayback.swf” height=”400″ width=”450″ /]
Sources Fla, Xml, As or FullSize Demo

To make it work for your use just edits:

  • extraitFLV_xml.load("../myFlv.xml");
  • my_flvPb.skin = "../skin.swf";

  • You’ll found both in the Flvplayback.fla file.

      Your for loop in the XMLLoad_myFlv.as is Intriguing… Is the commonly used? Are there any downsides to using the for loop like this? You could also use the child = o.fistnode; while(child){… child = child.nextSibling;} method.

      I like your player very much! But there’s no FLA in the zip you posted… Could you post that? I’d like to use it in a project if thats allright with you 🙂

      Sorry 4 the Fla, you can find it here :

      To reply Michaud : I found this way to loop XML in help file, I don’t know if it’s new or commonly used 😉

      Btw, this player is free to use.

      Great resource 🙂

      I have one issue with it though…

      I have a 320×240 FLV movie and for some reason the player resizes my movie to a smaller resolution (not sure exactly what resolution). I’ve tried everything – playing with the component’s parameters, resizing the component itself (even though I don’t think that would have had an effect anyway)…Do you have any idea why that happens?

      Thank you,

      Nice work ….I need some help furthur.
      I want to play the next movie by itself. Cant we just get rid of prev and next buttons and allow the player to play movies one by one.
      Please let me know how to do this.

      Fantastic player!

      Could you please tell me how to customize the player graphics?

      Just edit the fla and it should be ok. Otherwise go to as3.metah.ch, there are some tutorials for creating your own FLV player as well than using XML.
