Loadermax Newbie - Video Playback & Status

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

You loaderMax tools are awesome, but I can't seem to find any examples for what I need.. and I am urgently in need of them !!!

 

I have loaded a set of assets using:

public var queue:LoaderMax = new LoaderMax({name:"mainQueue", onProgress:progressHandler, onComplete:completeHandler, onError:errorHandler});

 

and within a loop added the assets to the queue:

queue.append( new VideoLoader(vURL, {name:"v_"+i, estimatedBytes:2350000}) );

queue.append( new ImageLoader(vThumbURL, {name:"vThumb_"+i, estimatedBytes:8500}) );

queue.append( new ImageLoader(vMapURL, {name:"vMap_"+i, estimatedBytes:3000}) );

 

started loading:

queue.load();

 

then when the completes it's load, i'm displaying the video, no problem:

var video:ContentDisplay = LoaderMax.getContent("v_1");

addChild(video);

 

NOW.. THIS IS WHERE I AM LOST:

 

1) How do access the properties of the video: like VIDEO_COMPLETE (so I know when it's finished) & others

2) how do I control the playback: playVideo() etc...

 

Nothing I try seems to be working??

I am guessing using ContentDisplay won't allow me these functions, but not sure how else to play the videos in my queue?

 

Please help! (quickly if possible ;) )

 

Thanks

 

Mike

There's actually a very detailed example of EXACTLY what you're trying to do here:

To answer your question, you control the video (and add listeners) using the VideoLoader itself, not the ContentDisplay. Like:

 

myVideoLoader.addEventListener(VideoLoader.VIDEO_COMPLETE, videoCompleteHandler);
myVideoLoader.playVideo();

function videoCompleteHandler(event:LoaderEvent):void {
   trace("finished playing VideoLoader: " + event.target);
}

Great!!!

 

Thanks soo much for your quick reply..

 

So i've done this, and it seems to be working a treat!

 

var videoLdr:VideoLoader = LoaderMax.getLoader("v_1");
trace("duration:" + videoLdr.duration)

var videoContent:ContentDisplay = LoaderMax.getContent("v_1");
addChild(videoContent);

videoLdr.addEventListener(VideoLoader.VIDEO_COMPLETE, videoCompleteHandler);
videoLdr.playVideo();

function videoCompleteHandler(event:LoaderEvent):void {
trace("finished playing VideoLoader: " + event.target);
}

 

Thanks Again.. awesome support!
