ActionScript 3.0 :: Playing Videos Sequentially From XML

I am getting a list of videos from my XML file.


However, for some reason my code only plays the last video. I know I am missing something but I stuck and I don't know what I am missing.

ActionScript Code:
//create menu
function createMenu():void {
//get info

Actionscript 3.0 :: Playing An .flv Then A .swf Sequentially?
I'm trying to go from an flv. that starts automatically 1st thing directly to a .swf file, with no user interaction. They are both inside a mc 'container' on the stage. I can get them both on the stage, but at more or less the same time, not sequentially. I tried using an addEventListener(VideoEvent.Complete) with the .flv, but the .swf starts up after the .flv is loaded, not after it finishes playing.

Am I supposed to use some sort of 'loader' strategy or is there a way to 'listen' to when a .flv finishes playing and then the .swf will come up automatically?

Professional :: Playing FLV Files Sequentially?
I have three flv files that I need to play sequentially, one right after the other in the same location (box) in an html document. I have segmented the video because of it's size. Does any one know how I would make this happen or where I can find some sort of tutorial that can assist me with this? I also have another project in which I have 4 animations that I want to play in sequence but they are in different locations on the web page.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Playing Mc Instances Sequentially In An Array?
I have a movieclip tweened of a lightbulb bright then fading. 50 or so instances are placed within another movieclip and given instance names of bulb0 to bulb50. I have a stop action on the first frame of this movieclip.

Other animation within the main movieclip is activated on rollover and I have used actionscript to place this main movieclip on the stage and to control the other animation within it.

Within my external as. I have an array as follows:

var bulbclips:Array = new Array();
for (var i:uint; i < 58; i++) {

How do I play a series of frames sequentially... (each one has a movie clip on it), and I don't want the next frame to start until the nested movie clip has finished playing?

ActionScript 2.0 :: Preloading Multiple SWFs Into Cache And Playing Them Sequentially?
I've tried endlessly to make sense of the solutions that other people have posted. But I cannot seem to get any code to work my my purposes, so I decided to post my own thread.I have a main parent Flash movie that I need to load 7 exteral SWFs into. Each of the SWFs is like its own scene in a longer movie. The external files are called:


The final parent movie should play each external SWF movie sequentially so that it appears as one combined movie (so none of the loaded SWFs are actually playing at the same time - they should only play one at a time, one after another).I want to preload mc1.swf, mc2. swf and mc3.swf into the cache before the parent movie starts playing(and I would like to include a progress bar to indicate loading status). Once those SWFs are preloaded, I would like them to start playing sequentially while the rest of the SWFs load in the background.

Basically,I have a long Flash animation that I decided to split up into several individual movies.I've using the parent movie to seamlessly string together my individual movies to give the appearance of cohesion.I have determined that I should use the MovieClipLoader Class and loadClip() to accomplish what I am trying to do.However, I have a very limited knowledge of actionscripting, so this has been a major challenge for me.

I am optimizing the parent SWF for the web, and it's important that the video plays seamlessly, so I cannot put individual preloaders onto each external SWF. They have to preload at the beginning so that when each individual SWF is called, it's already loaded and no preloader is required.

Sound Auto-playing In Videos?
I'm making a project in Flash at college and when I view my project and click on a few tabs the sound from the videos starts playing and I can't get it to stop. The video doesn't play though but it's always the sound and if I press pause the video will pause but the sound keeps on playing.

Flash :: Some Videos Not Playing Through YouTube API
I have a Flash based application that loads youtube videos using the YouTube API. Recently some videos that have previously played have stopped playing. When I click through to the YouTube site using the embedded Youtube link there is no indication as to why they should not play, for example removed content, not embeddable etc. Have there been any recent changes to youtube API that would result in this behaviour. It seems random to me and I cant find any pattern, or reason why this should be.

Playing Videos Using Flash 'offline'
I'm building a site that needs to work both online (served in a browser using http://), and offline (served in a browser using file:///). The site is using basic HTML, but needs to be able to play FLV or MP4 videos. There are many video players that work online, but getting a player to work on the users machine is more problematic. Every one I have tried either doesn't work or shows a message about adding the flash movie to my trusted files in flash player.[code]Has anybody experienced a similar problem? Does anybody have a suggestion for alternatives that may work.

ActionScript 3.0 :: Adding Videos To Timelines And Playing Them?
I created 5 swfs (simple animations) and want to "somehow" thread them together to play one after the other inside the timeline of a new Flash Document. I was hoping to import each swf, have "movie 1" play, stop, have "movie 2" play, stop and so on until the 5th "movie plays out then stops (no looping necessary).

I've been playing with timeline actions for 2 days and can't figure how to lead one to the other. I've been using Action Script 2 so far but please get me back to Kansas with this. I'll use Action 3 if I have to.

Professional :: Best Option For Playing Multiple Videos?
I'm tweaking a flash website for a freind and he wants to have some videos play from a page. There are 25 files and ideally I want to achieve the 'Lightbox' look so that the browser window dims and the video plays over the top. After looking around I haven't found any easy solutions.What is the best way to achieve this, bearing in mind I shall have all these buttons on a page and want to have the video 'float' on top of the actual site?I'm relatively new to this although a long standing flash user when it comes to animation etc - not great on scripting.

Jquery :: Swaping Videos Through Hide / Show While Playing
So my code is:Click the link show the div.I'm using the jquery flash embed object.[code]When I repeat this code and get the second video to load on click. It works in all browsers. The only issue I'm running into is that in IE6 the video keeps playing and in other browsers it stops the video your watching and loads the one you clicked on. I looked into using the .remove object or the .append to a div, but I can't seem to get that to work and if it does work will it play nice with IE6.

Flash - Buffer Two Online Videos Alternately While Playing One Of Them?
On my website, I want my user to be able to launch video 2 at any point in the middle of video 1 without waiting or refreshing the window. How can I buffer the two videos such that I buffer video 1 enough to let it start playing, and then buffer just enough of video 2 that if the user launches it at any point, he does not have to wait to view its first few seconds, and then I can come back and buffer the rest of video 1? If this is not possible, I could also look at buffering video 1 and 2 in parallel while playing only video 1.

Jquery :: Playing Flash (.flv) Videos On Web In A Way That Portable Devices Can View Them
A friend of mine has created a movie for my site, it's in .flv format. I've heard of the popular flash player called flowplayer, but I have a bad feeling such a player will not work on the ipad and other devices which do not support flash. Is there a way to play a video in the flash format through a non-flash player so that the content can be viewed on all devices?
