Hi Guys

I have an ASX file that streams the media from the web. I want to bypass the need of using the Windows Media player plugin and play the file using a pure flash player. I have been searching for a solution, but have had no luck thus far.

Any one has any ideas?

From Wikipedia "The Advanced Stream Redirector (ASX) format is a type of XML metafile designed to store a list of Windows Media files to play during a multimedia presentation."

Flash doesn't play any windows media native files. It only plays Flash video files (flv) and Mpeg4 (h.264 encoded) either as a .mp4 or .mov file. So to get that to play in Flash you'll need to figure out how to convert it to a file type that flash understands or look into something microsoft native like silverlight.
