    Don't know of any open source players but I have a free player you can use if you don't need the FLA file. Not sure what you mean by "plain" video files though.

    Fair call. Do you know how these more sophisticated methods work?

    I assume the test-file-method would have some limitations, e.g. if the user leaves the page and comes back, the test file will...

    Flash itself isn't the best Flash video encoder, as odd as that sounds. You'll get better results with a third-party encoder like Flix Pro or Sorenson Squeeze. 2-pass encoding makes quite a...

    I believe the only way to detect the user's connection speed is to use a streaming server. If you aren't using a streaming server you will need to ask the user to indicate their connection speed,...

    The length of the movie shouldn't matter if it's loaded externally. Maybe a link to the player might help.

    Rather than trying to "cut out" the video, you'd use a chroma key (i.e. blue screen or green screen).

    This looks like a good candidate for Flash 8's alpha channel support.

    Thanks! I'm using Flix Pro 2-pass encoding at around 300KBps.

    Sorry I don't have a solution for you. I use a buffer time of 4 seconds and I haven't noticed any problems. I don't know what could be...

    You don't have the Flash 8 Player? Just out of curiosity, why not?

    My media player is only experimental at this stage. I don't see much point in trying to support v7 - by the time it's ready we'll...

    I don't know about the autoplay, but it sounds like you need to increase the bufferTime parameter. I find around 4 seconds works well for my users.

    It does seem a little suspicious. The effort to learn how to make that player with no Flash experience wouldn't be worth saving $50, especially for a business.

    Anyway, it's a very nice player. I...
