Hi, due to flash player’s limit, it only support: flv (sorenson, on2), mov (h.264), or mp4

Considering purchasing, but had a few questions: - as far as support for .mov and .mp4, is the name of the file just entered in the xml file, or does it first have to be converted (to flv format)? The person who will be uploading videos is not technical but needs to do it without the help of a programmer

- can the .fla be adjusted such that, after the video is selected, it does not have to be clicked once more in order for it to play, but rather plays immediately, without the flip transition?

- Is no database use required, since it’s xml based?

Thanks!

1) Yes, this item can play the video which flash player is compatible.
2) Yes, but need to do some modify in the actionscript, and there is another version: http://activeden.net/item/xml-coverflow-video-gallery/58570 , which is click to play.
3) Yes, it’s totally xml driven.
Hope this help you, thanks.

Hi,

I want to add this player to an existing movie, but I am not sure which file to drag and drop to the existing movie.

I copied the library over and I know the main files are preview and main but I am not sure which one I need to drag to the stage in my existing project.

Thanks

Hi, this item is written in AS3 , you can load it to another AS3 driven file. It doesn’t support drag and drop from library.

How do I do that?

Hi, you can load external swf in AS3 like this:
var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest("http://www.[yourdomain].com/externalSwf.swf");
var loader:Loader = new Loader()
loader.load(request);
addChild(loader);

Great Gallery, man !

I purchased it but I have a question. Is it possible to load an external xml with “flashvars” ? I tried to modify main.as but that doesn’t work. Can you help me doing this modification ? Thank you !

This videogallery looks pretty spiffy, but before purchasing I’d like to know a thing or two!

Is it possible to change the background and dimensions of the player without too much knowledge of Adobe Flash, I only have some very basic skills and practically no experience in AS3 .

Love to be hearing about those possibilities!

Thanks already!

Hi I purchased this item and sent you an email asking for a little help with it. Great job, I like it just one issue:

I need the video to launch full screen, when I click on the icon to launch full screen there’s no response.

How can I make it active/work to launch the videos full screen when the icon is clicked?

Thanks

Hi, you need to set the allowFullScreen to true in the HTML . There is an example in the deploy folder. Thanks.

Allow full screen is set to “true” Could it be something else?

The fullscreen will take effect when the video is detected, otherwise when you click the button there is no effect.

FYI :
To enable full-screen mode, developers must add a new <object> and <embed> tag parameter, allowFullScreen, to their HTML. This parameter defaults to false, or not allowing full screen. To allow full-screen, developers must set allowFullScreen to true in their <object>/<embed> tags.

Hello! Anyone having issues with how it is working in IE 7 ? I’ve emailed the author of this file, but am getting no reply… :(

I had to re-size the files (XML, AS and FLA ) to fit in my template, but when I did that, and test it in IE7 , the videos jump to the very top left hand corner and cannot be played. I’ve tried to tweak the AS file, but when I do that and export the swf file, it generates errors and does not fix the problem.

If you clear your cache in IE, the problem goes away, but I can’t depend that the visitors to the website will be knowledgeable enough to clear their cache…

any suggestions would be helpful.

Hi, please remove the scaleMode and align in the Main.as

/*
stage.scaleMode = StageScaleMode.NO_SCALE;
stage.align = StageAlign.TOP_LEFT;
*/
This will fix the refresh bug, and I’ve updated the source here, it’s in the queue and will be available here soon.

Hello,

I want to add this player to an existing movie, but when I publish, I get this message : TypeError: Error #1009: Cannot access a property or method of a null object reference. at Main()

Here is the code : var request:URLRequest = new URLRequest(“preview.swf”); var loader:Loader = new Loader() loader.load(request); addChild(loader);

I haven’t modified the player yet.

Can someone explain what does it mean ?

Thank you.

Hi, you need to put the statement with stage instance after an init function in the Main.as, which looks like:
    public function Main():void{ 
                if (stage) init();
                else addEventListener(Event.ADDED_TO_STAGE, init);
            }       

    private function init(e:Event = null):void {
        removeEventListener(Event.ADDED_TO_STAGE, init);
        TextShortcuts.init();    
        DisplayShortcuts.init();    
        FilterShortcuts.init();      
        ColorShortcuts.init();   
        stage.scaleMode = StageScaleMode.NO_SCALE;
        stage.align = StageAlign.TOP_LEFT;
        //stage.addEventListener(Event.RESIZE, resizeHandler);                
        sw = stage.stageWidth;
        sh = stage.stageHeight;  
        centerX = sw>>1;
        centerY = sh>>1;    
        loadXML();                
    }
Hope this help you, thanks.

It works. Thanks a lot !

Hello,

Is there a function (in the .as files) to add reflection under the covers or do I have to program it myself ?

Thank you.

Hi, right now there is no this feature, you need to implement it by yourself. Thanks.

Hi, We’ve purchased this item and have implemented it into our site, however I’ve since found that there is a bug in IE7 (and sometimes in IE8 ). I’ve also now seen in the comments someone else has this issue (It manifests itself in your demo version too on this site). The content seems to appear in the top left rather than the centre of the flash area.

I was wondering if you have resolved this in a newer version, or are able to investigate it?

Thanks.

Hi,

I have just purchased the item and there are problems immediately when I open in firefox – which versions is it meant to be compatible with? Problem of content appearing in top left.

Secondly – I have just placed some mp4 videos into the video folder and added the correct paths in the xml file to open the same, but the video won’t play at all – I can only hear audio!

Thanks.

For the video bug, please make sure the videos are compatible with flash player. You can convert them to flv. Thanks.

Hi, right now it only support the http protocol, it doesn’t support the RTMP . Thanks.

Got it to work with the http protocol, but now i have the problem that if i change to another video during playing it stops and has to be reloaded.

You can see the error here: http://www.nolimit-aalborg.dk/?id=12

Hi, due to the Bitmap security limit. you’ve to put the swf and the video in the same domain, or you can put a crossdomain proxy in the video’s web server root, which will allow the swf to call the Bitmap draw of the video. Thanks.
