I have a large flv video file that I want to create an exe projector file (a "click me to start" file for users) that is linked to and plays the flv video when you open the exe. These files would then be burned to a cd rom.

Does anyone know how to create the link from the exe projector to open the flv file for cd rom distribution.

thanks!

i'm not sure if this is the answer of ur question but If u want to link a *.flv video to a *.exe projector u have to import the *.flv video to a blank flash document:

File -> Import -> Import video
Then browse ur *.flv and next until u get to finish
Then publish it as *.swf (FunBall.swf for example)

And in ur presentation file "click me to start" put this code:
Code: [ Select ]
_root.loadMovie("FunBall.swf");

And in the end of course publish it as *.exe projector

Why can't you do that?

Basically it's as simple as ibrabdo explained. Create your Flash Movie however you want it. I've always found it easiest to put the flv file in the same directory as the Flash File. Create the autorun.inf per the instructions in the link above. You can do this in notepad - you can leave out the .ico part if you don't have or want to include an Icon.


So when your done, your directory would contain the following files:

(replace the generic filenames with your own, of course).

myFlash.fla
myFlash.swf
myFlash.exe
myVideo.flv
autorun.inf

Then all you would have to do is burn everything except the .FLA file to CD
*note - burn all these to the root of the CD - the Key is, the swf and flv file have to also be included with the .exe file for it to work. In other words the CD has to be self contained. You can't link to any files on your computer or any files that are on the internet (you could use files on the internet and it would work with an absolute path to the URI, but everyone that views your CD would have to be connected to the internet and be able to access that website when the CD plays - better to keep everything self contained on the CD).
It really isn't anymore complicated than that.

thank anyway! I got another question from my friend:

Is it possible that you could advise me on the best settings to have when playing an FLV back from CD-Rom, I have a similar problem in that my FLVs playback ok on high-spec PCs/Macs, but when I launch in on an old PC/Mac there are serious staggers in the playback and some audio glitches.

If anyone has any advice on how to combat this I would be very grateful.

THE BASICS
---------------------------------------------------------------
I am using flash to present 2 FLV files via a CD Rom.

THE ISSUE
---------------------------------------------------------------
The FLV files are quite large, 1x 40mb file and 1x 43mb file (dimensions 1024x576). Playback on a high end PC with 2GB Ram is great, no staggering in the playback. Testing this on a high-end Mac too yeilds no performance issues with playback.

However, when the settings are reduced to a low-end PC/Mac, there are glitches in the audio and staggering in the visual playback as the lower spec machine tries to cope as best it can with the Hi-Res video.

The flv files are externally loaded into a movie clip that is designed for FLV playback using a buffer speed 0.1.

QUESTION:
-----------------------------------------------
Does anyone have any tips/ advice on the best way to resolve the staggered playback, audio glitching.

The obvious routes ahead of me are;
------------------------------------------------
Reduce the quality of the FLVs I am playing.
Reduce the dimensions of each FLV.
Cut the FLV into smaller pieces and link them together via the movie clip loader (NOT sure how to do that though?)

Does anyone have any advice on my annoying problem?
Thanks for reading.
