View Full Version : Importing Video and Autoplaying

02-17-2009, 03:42 PM

I have imported a video into Flash (8) and am trying to figure out now how to make it autoplay when the movie gets to the frame that it's located in.

I have dragged the video to the stage, but when I play the flash file, the movie doesn't start.

Anyone know how I can get it to autoplay? Thanks!

I do know, but honestly its a lot easier to refer you to an excellent resource: www.gotoandlearn.com. It has a great series on making a video player (and you don't want to import it into Flash 8 like that!) that was part of the start of the site. I believe there is a new set of tutorials on making a video player, but look for the set of 8 videos on making a player.

Are you thinking of having movie controls? I'm actually making a 30-second commercial for a project, so it has to auto play....

Well yes, but if you don't want that then you can still follow those lessons even if you choose not to have controls. The first couple would provide you with the majority of the information you need.
