Hi,

Can we dynamically load a quicktime mov file into Flash 8 at runtime. I know that we can import a mov file to the fla timeline and use it, or convert an mov file to flv and load it dynamically using loadMovie function.

But what if I want to load quicktime mov files dynamically? My application allows users to upload quicktime mov files using Flash 8. But what when they want to view/play their uploaded files?

Is there a way to playback uploaded .mov files in Flash 8 at runtime or convert these into flv programatically??? Thanks in advance.

Why just not use a getURL to play them in the user's default video player?

Yeah I can definitely do that, but my projec requires that the users see the movie in the application itself :(

If I don't find a solution probably that is exactly what I will have to do.

I think www.gotoandlearn.com has the answer for you. There are a couple of tutorials about loading movies into flash.

I have the same problem
loading quicktime movies dynamically would be a real help.
Exept for converting it into huge flv files i dont see another solution.
So anyone knows how to load quicktime movies dynamically?
