How can I make a seamless FLV Video loop using flash cs3? Also! How can I put a title in the playback bar?

I'd like to be able to loop back video playback seamlessly on my website. I was able to get the video to loop but there seems to be a slight delay during the loop. Is there any way to fix this?

Here is a link to the example.


Right now I am using the FLVplayback component with this actionscript.


player.addEventListener(VideoEvent.COMPLETE, playAgain);
function playAgain(evt:VideoEvent):void {;;

I was also wondering if anyone knew how I could put a title in the menu bar. There will probably be a few videos so I am hoping for a way that is easily changed.

What is "the menu bar"?

Response by poster: The bar that appears under the video when you roll over it. The one that has the play and full screen option.

Okay, so you're using the flvPlayback component?

It doesn't contain a textfield, so you can't add a title to it. You'll have to add your own textfield to the stage and put the title in that.

Have you tried or something like that?

If that doesn't work, you're going to have to use a more complex solution. Maybe load two copies of the video, hide one, play the other. Then, when the first video is almost finished, swap them.
