Lesson 18. Loading External Assets > Loading and Controlling External Video

Loading and Controlling External Video

With the growing popularity of broadband, the use of video in applications continues to escalate. Fortunately for us, so do Flash's capabilities for loading and playing video.

The previous version of Flash (Flash MX) could load and play external video clips, but only with the assistance of Flash Communication Server. It was possible to embed video clips within the SWF, but this tended to make the file size rather large. Not only does Flash MX 2004 not need Flash Communication Server when using external video, but it provides some excellent tools in the form of Media components. These tools make the process of using video in your applications much easier.
