I have a small flash problem
I have a swf file with an inbeded flv file.
The swf and flv files need to play in sync.
The Movie has text that needs to syncronise at the same time as the Movie.
The Movie seems to start at random times and the text is then out of sync with the Movie.
I have loaded a component Seek Bar which has an arrow head showing the Pct loaded although this is not text just visual.
If I can access the percentage of the movie that has been played I can then display the text at the correct time.
Example if the text ' Good idea' needs to come on the screen when the movie is half way though ie. 50% if I can then have the text alpha turn to 100% when 50% of the movie has run.
100% at this point.
In that way I will guarantee the two will be in sync. Otherwise the text does not appear at the right time.
This is the only way I can think of to guarantee that the text will show in sync at the same time as the movie.
So just to repeat I need the movie to sync with the text. If I can access the amount of the movie loaded in numerical form rather than the visual form I can then just simply turn the alpha from0 to 100 when we reach that part of the movie,
I need a robust solution if you have something else that would work let me know.
The specification of this task is to
1. Acess the percentage of the movie current played from the componenet seek bar
2. Then have the alpha change to 100% from 0 when a certain pre determined level of the movie has played
I can not upload the files currently as there is a problem with the web site. I will keep trying
