    Loading .wmv or any video dynamically into Flash

    Hey there,

    I am trying to load a .wmv file into my flash movie dynamically using actionscript, but it does not seem to load, I know that I can use a .FLV file but unfortunately that has no use to me, because the application im developing needs to be feed by popular file formats.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    You can't. It is not supported.
    You can import embedded wmv if DirectX 9 or later is installed.

    oh right, thats very bad then. well embedding doesn't help me since this needs to be customisable, thanks anyway.

    Any suggestion of what i can do?? I mean if i have to use FLV how could I convert files to that format. Also one important thing is that this method should be easy so my users can do it. (my users range from novice to experienced, its a project for the academics of a university!)

    your help would be appreciated.

    thanks again

    Flash 8 comes with a Video encoder, which converts other video formats into flv. There are also several programs, which do that. I am using for example Visual Hub for the Mac. If you search the internet there are many programs for windows.
