View Full Version : [AS3] create a projector that will open my movie full screen and use it on a touch sc

I am a Flash newbie and I'm trying to create a simple application similar to a video dvd. I know there's an "export to flash" function in Encore dvd but it's limited and I would like to do it by myself and create a projector that will open my movie full screen and use it on a touch screen.

I am doing like this:

Frame 1: - labeled "menu"

I have two buttons on the stage and this actionscript code:

fscommand("fullscreen", "true");


btn_1.addEventListener (MouseEvent.CLICK, function () { gotoAndStop ("Movie1");})
btn_2.addEventListener (MouseEvent.CLICK, function () { gotoAndStop ("Movie2");})

Frame 2 - labeled "Movie1"

I have an empty movieclip on the stage, and a button (menu_btn) to go back to the main menu

My actionscript code is:


import fl.video.*;

var myVideo:FLVPlayback = new FLVPlayback();
myVideo.source = "video.flv";

myVideo.addEventListener(VideoEvent.COMPLETE, completePlay);

function completePlay(e:VideoEvent):void {
trace ("end movie");



menu_btn.addEventListener (MouseEvent.CLICK, function () { gotoAndStop ("menu");})


The swf movie works fine in Flash but when I export it to a projector I get two main issues:

- The FLV movie playback is full screen and it hides the "menu_bnt"
- the action "gotoAndStop" called by the function completePlay doesn't work

How can I solve the problem? Sorry but I'm very new to flash and I'm trying to learn.

Thank you!

The component defaults to using hardware acceleration to only show itself when in fullscreen. Tell it not to.
