RE: [Flashcoders] Upgrading from Master Collection Cs4 - just Flash Cs5?

2010-06-20 Thread Keith Reinfeld
Matt, 

Based on my personal experience the answer to your question is no. 

I wanted to upgrade - just Flash - I figured I have Flash, it came with
Studio 8. 

The Flash upgrade install would not accept as valid the serial number from a
'bundled' product for a 'point' product, i.e. Studio 8 to just Flash CS4. I
had to return Flash CS4 and upgrade to a bundled suite. (It would have
cost more to buy Flash CS4 alone!) 

I suggest that you contact an Adobe rep directly to be certain what their
current policy is. 

Regards,

 Yes you can upgrade to Flash Professional CS5 from from Adobe Flash CS4
 Professional or CS3 Professional or Macromedia Flash Professional 8 or
 Basic
 8 for $199.00.

 If you use the complete CS4 Suite, and you upgrade any other components
 at a
 latter date, this is an expensive way to go. It is a trap, but it is
 always
 better/cheaper to upgrade the complete suite.

RE: [Flashcoders] as3 flvPlayback seekbar

2010-06-20 Thread Cor
I have used the build-in FLVPlayback component, but after a 32 video played,
I used all sound channels and the sound doesn't stop properly when I
removeChild(myFLVplayback);

Of course this is my mistake of bad coding, but I thought I let you know...

Subject: [Flashcoders] as3 flvPlayback seekbar

hey guys

i usually use a Video class with a netstream object to show video but i've
been trying to implement the (supposedly) simpler flvplayback component
because of the extra functionality that it provides (like variable streams
and metadata cuepoints in f4vs)

however

i'm trying to add a standard seekbar component and it just doesn't seem to
be working - it's appearing and the video and all other controls are working
but with no handle and no seekbar updates - i have the feeling that i'm
missing something obvious but i can't see what it is and Google is not my
friend right now - could you take a look at what i'm doing please?

here is my implementation:

_videoPlayer = new FLVPlayback();
 _video = getVideo(_videoPlayer.activeVideoPlayerIndex);
_video.smoothing = true;
 _videoPlayer.width = _mediaWidth;
_videoPlayer.height = _mediaHeight - CONTROLS_HEIGHT;
_videoPlayer.autoRewind = true;
_videoPlayer.bufferTime = 2;
_videoPlayer.source = Config.flashvars.myRoot + XML(_listData)@src;
addChild(_videoPlayer);
 // navigation
_sprNavigation = new Sprite();
_sprNavigation.y = _videoPlayer.height;
addChild(_sprNavigation);
 var playPauseBtn:MovieClip = new PlayPauseButton();
playPauseBtn.y = CONTROLS_PAD;
_sprNavigation.addChild(playPauseBtn);
 var fullscreenBtn:MovieClip = new FullScreenButton();
fullscreenBtn.y = CONTROLS_PAD;
fullscreenBtn.x = _mediaWidth - fullscreenBtn.width;
_sprNavigation.addChild(fullscreenBtn);
 var seekBar:MovieClip = new SeekBar();
seekBar.x = playPauseBtn.x + playPauseBtn.width + CONTROLS_SPACING;
seekBar.y = playPauseBtn.y + playPauseBtn.height / 2 - seekBar.height / 2;
_sprNavigation.addChild(seekBar);
 _videoPlayer.playPauseButton = playPauseBtn;
_videoPlayer.seekBar = seekBar;
_videoPlayer.fullScreenButton = fullscreenBtn;

i'm about to give up and roll my own but that's not really the point of
using the build-in components (it is, however, one of the reasons i never
use the stock components)

thanks guys

Re: [Flashcoders] Upgrading from Master Collection Cs4 - just Flash Cs5?

2010-06-20 Thread Matt S.
Yeah, thats what I was afraid of, and unfortunately I already
purchased the single upgrade. My SN kept getting rejected, so I
started doing some research, and asked the list about it because I was
hoping I was wrong.

Well, that's completely retarded! At this point Adobe should be
thanking their lucky stars for anyone who bothers to upgrade to Flash
Cs5, by whatever channel, given the ongoing shooting war with Apple.
Was the return process easy at least?

I don't think their offer allows upgrade discounts for versions that 
isn't one major version older.

Not true. You can currently upgrade from products as far back as Flash 8 and
Studio 8. Just pick from the 'Product you own' list. The upgrade price goes
up for older products. 
You can upgrade from an individual 'point' product to a bundled product but
not from a bundled product to an individual product.

Fairly easy. 
Just go into your account and find the link to make a return. They don't
want you to physically return the disc but you have to fill out a Letter of
Software Destruction. There should be a few brief e-mails while they decide
to approve your request. 
It may take a couple weeks but watch your credit card statement to see that
they have reversed the charge off your account. 

Good luck!

[Flashcoders] HTMLLoader and AIR -- always a nice white blank

2010-06-20 Thread Tony Fairfield
Are there known issues with the HTMLLoader method?

 

No success at all with it: I have CS4, and building with AIR 1.5, and
can only get one result: a white box when the content loads (whether
html or pdf). I have tried many options: local documents, site urls (as
in Adobe's eg below), PDF, straight html, and PDF embedded into html.
Tried it at work and at home to eliminate possibility of some obscure
security setting.

 

Here's Adob'es own example from Live docs, which I've implemented
exactly (without success):

 

public function HTMLLoaderExample()

{

var html:HTMLLoader = new HTMLLoader();

var urlReq:URLRequest = new
URLRequest(http://www.adobe.com/;);

html.width = stage.stageWidth;

html.height = stage.stageHeight;

html.load(urlReq); 

addChild(html);

}

 

I've seen many posts about transaprency, but that isn't the issue (my
app.xml has transparency set to false).

 

Some mention adding the content to a UIComponent once the document is
loaded. Tried that.

 

I'm stumped by this, as I see exactly the same script for this process
everywhere, including the AIR 1.5 Cookbook. I'm beginning to think it's
a fiction.

 

Any advice or tips much appreciated.

Hi,

   That's really strange because recently we upgraded at work from CS3 
Master Collection to Flash CS4.  We got lucky by upgrading a week before 
CS5 was announced, so qualified for the free upgrade to Flash CS5 - had 
no problems with this, but we did do it through the Volume Licensing 
site with a Corporate License rather than normal.


   I would hope and expect that this is a bug rather than a policy 
thing, but good luck sorting it out.

That's shockingly bad customer service - someone needs a slapping for 
creating that policy because it is far more likely to alienate customers 
at a time when people's pockets are not so deep...  I have been lucky 
with customer support so far, so maybe you encountered an idiot...


Come on Adobe, get your policies right, or at least consistent!
