Using QuickTime Video

Sometimes nothing can get the point across as effectively as video. To this end, you can mix Flash content with QuickTime video to create fully interactive videos. You can even use Flash actions to control the QuickTime video timeline (if you want to make it go to specific frames or play certain sections), just as you would with regular Flash content. You can also place Flash content, such as buttons and movie clips, on top of a QuickTime video to act as an interface or a way of annotating the QuickTime movie.

There are, however, a few limitations: QuickTime 4 is the only format that can play back content that combines Flash and QuickTime video; The Flash 5 Player does not support this functionality. When creating a Flash project that uses QuickTime video, you must export it to QuickTime format, not Flash, and your audience must have the QuickTime plug-in or player installed on their computers to view it. For more information, see Chapter 16, "Publishing."
