View Full Version : Play button separate from flash player
02-20-2008, 05:10 PM
I would like to activate a flash video with a play button that is located somewhere else on a web page, other than the player itself, like an image maybe. The player is transparent and is not visible.
Can anyone help me with coding for that?

By transparent I mean that I have video shot on a green screen and exported the alpha channel, so the player is there but you don't see it until play is hit then the charector shows.
Thanks for the tip. Can you help me out with the coding or send me in a direction?

First you will need swfobject. Google that, should be the first result.
var so = new SWFObject("movie.swf", "mymovie", "400", "100%", "8", "#336699");
Then your image would look like
<img src="someimage.jpg" onclick="writeMovie()" alt="">
You would probably need to have the video autoplay this way it shows up when you write it to the screen.
