  • After the layout step, we must write some codes to control these objects. There are two sections: codes for the blanks, and codes for buttons.
  •  
  • Initialization codes:
  •  
  • Click on the blank area of the Flash document and expand Actions-Frame. Copy and paste the following codes:
  •  
  • var nc: NetConnection = new NetConnection();
  • var ns:NetStream;
  • var videoLoaded = false;
  •  
  • Codes for the buttons:
  •  
  • Click on the Play button and expand Actions-Frame. Copy and paste the following codes:
  •  
  • on(click)
  • {
  • var nc = _parent.nc;
  • var ns = _parent.ns;
  • if (!_parent.videoLoaded  ||  _parent.videoFile != _parent.txtVideo.text) {
  •     var url;
  •     var file;
  •     var full_url = _parent.txtVideo.text;
  •  
  •     var index = full_url.lastIndexOf("/");
  •     if (index == -1) return;
  •     url = full_url.substr(0, index);
  •     file = full_url.substr(index+1);
  •  
  •     nc.connect(url, _parent.txtUser.text, _parent.txtPassword.text);
  •     _parent.ns = new NetStream(nc);
  •     ns = _parent.ns;
  •     _parent.video_screen.attachVideo(ns);
  •     ns.play(file);
  •     ns.pause(true);
  •     _parent.videoLoaded = true;
  •     _parent.videoFile = _parent.txtVideo.text;
  •   }
  • ns.pause();
  • }
  • Have you noticed the red part of the codes? It means the user name and password. This is a unique feature of Flash Video Server, with which end users can access the virtual host with the user name and password. If the user is authorized, he can access the virtual host and play the desired FLV. To know more about user authorization, please refer to Moyea Flash Video Server Console Manual. For the FLV Player we are creating now, a guest can not play the video without an ID and authorization.
  •  
  • Click on the Stop button and expand Actions-Frame. Copy and paste the following codes:
  •  
  • on(press)
  • {
  • _parent.ns.seek(0);
  • _parent.ns.pause(true);
  • }
  •  
  • 4. Export
  •  
  • After all the above settings, we can check by pressing Ctrl + Enter. If it works, we can export it as an SWF.
  • Select File> Export> Export Movie
  • Choose the desired location, name the file and press OK.
  • In the Export Flash Player window, select Access network only in the Local Playback Security menu.
  • Press OK to confirm and now we finish it.

  • Just add a video screen in the Flash document, and add the following codes.
  •  
  • Initialization codes:

  • nc.connect("rtmp://127.0.0.1/Sample/Sample");
  •  
  • var ns: NetStream = new NetStream(nc);
  • video_screen.attachVideo(ns);
  • ns.play("sample");
