Re: plat swf files sequentionally from xml

I've finished your requirement almost but how do you read the swf files from the xml one by one? My code will parse the xml and open the swf files one by one and so you can only view the last swf file.

var myXML:XML=new XML();
        for(var aNode:XMLNode = this.firstChild.firstChild;aNode!=null;aNode=aNode.nextSibling){

And your sampleFiles.xml should look like this:

First try uninstalling the version you are using and install the latest version 5.2, Then open an .swf file in the player and close the file. Now open the video file you were trying to play. The sound must be audible. Try this solution, if the sound was audible in other video players and not audible with MPCStar player.

How do I load several swf files and use 1 xml?

The easiest solution is to put all flash files in sub-folders, and link them in Dreamweaver from the files in the root folder --- but the key, AFTER uploading to your server, is to change your MANAGE SITE CONTENT information with your host server. Specifically, change (advanced) PERMISSIONS to READ and EXECUTE (DIRECTORY). It's important that both are checked… If you don't do this you'll see that it works fine on your local machine, but not after uploading to your server.

how to create your own .swf video and post up on internet.

SWF info:

The Flash File Format (SWF) was designed as a very efficient delivery format that was initially designed to deliver vector graphics and animation over the Internet. It was designed to meet the following goals:

On-screen Display—The format is primarily intended for on-screen display and so it supports anti-aliasing, fast rendering to a bitmap of any color format, animation and interactive buttons.

Extensibility—The format is a tagged format, so the format can be evolved with new features while maintaining backward compatibility with older players.

Network Delivery—The files can be delivered over a network with limited and unpredictable bandwidth. The files are compressed to be small and support incremental rendering through streaming. SWF is a binary format and is not human readable like HTML. Macromedia Flash (SWF) uses techniques such as bit-packing and structures with optional fields, to minimize file size.

Simplicity—The format is simple so that the player is small and easily ported. Also, the player depends upon only a very limited set of operating system functionality.

File Independence—Files can be displayed without any dependence on external resources such as fonts.

Scalability—Different computers have different monitor resolutions and bit depths. Files work well on limited hardware, while taking advantage of more expensive hardware when it is available.

Speed—The files are designed to be rendered at a high quality very quickly.

Don't want to do any code work?

if you really want to share a video or Dvd moive and want to post up on the internet, or send the SWF file to your friends through mobile device, the simplest way is to encode the video to .SWF first

I can't open videos requiring flash player eventhough i've already installed it

If you have Adobe flash player on your computer and you get the message on youtube to download the latest version of Adobe or turn on your Java in place of the video you want to watch, then look at your toolbar at the top of the screen and if there is a pink bar that says the website wants to run an Add On for Adobe flashplayer then click on it and select Allow Add On or Blocked content and the video should run fine.
