[Flashcoders] JavaFX released

2008-12-05 Thread Jason Van Cleave
Curious to what others think...

Interesting that it can play flvs out of the box. I haven't seen the
feature in action but supposedly you can drag applications from the
browser to the desktop. The free NetBeans IDE is a nice touch too.

Re: [Flashcoders] Stream Live from File

2008-11-09 Thread Jason Van Cleave
The player is setup for RTMP streams coming in live from a CDN. We are
doing a live event and this is in case the connection goes down and we
need to send a prerecorded stream to the same player.

I did find some virtual webcam software that creates a virtual
camera that Flash Media Encoder was able to pick up but getting sound
to work is kinda clunky.

So in the end I am just going the router of DVD player -AV/DV
converter -Flash media Encoder

 playing it back through?

[Flashcoders] Flash Hardware Video Encoders

2008-09-24 Thread Jason Van Cleave
We are doing a live webcast event and I am wondering if you guys have
any experience/insight with hardware encoders that support Flash VP6
encoding.

The ones I am looking at in particular are the XStream series from kulabyte
http://kulabyte.com/index.php/main/product_xstream/

and the StreamZ Live encoders series:
http://www.digital-rapids.com/Products/IndividualProducts/StreamZ%20Live.aspx

Any insight on using Flash Media Encoder for a live webcast would be
appreciated as well,

Re: [Flashcoders] SOT: (Rant) Why is Adobe.com such a bad website?

drupal is not that bad

On Thu, Sep 4, 2008 at 3:50 PM, Radley Marx [EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:



 As a designer and developer, I *envied* the design of macromedia.com. I
 studied it. Other companies copied it.

 I remember what a beautiful website MM once had, and at the time how Adobe's
 was the exact opposite - ugly, hard to use, thoughtless. When Adobe bought
 Macromedia, they immediately adopted the MM site. Brilliant move! But over
 the past couple of years, Adobe has really beat it down with the ugly stick.

 With the demise of Flashpaper, I came across this page:

http://www.adobe.com/products/flashpaper/eod_faq/

 This is probably one of the ugliest, thoughtless pages from a serious source
 I've ever experienced in my career.

 Aesthetically, it's depressing. Depression-era-chic depressing.

 As a utility, it's restrictive. I must click on each question to discover
 the facts, with many simply answering No.

 Functionality, it's ridiculously ironic. Topic: Flashpaper discontinued.
 First link: Buy online.


 Other rants / examples:

 1) How does a developer download the debug player via the download page?
 There's no link!


  
 http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash

 Answer? It's actually down in Support / Flash Player. But most developers
 find it via a better source: Google search.


 2) Link icons on the debugger download page have been wrong for *years*. The
 text links are right, but check out what happens if you use the actual
 download arrows. You may accidently get Flash 8, or Windows .exe instead of
 .dmg for Mac downloads.

http://www.adobe.com/support/flashplayer/downloads.html

 (Note that I even managed to get an Adobe team member to forward these bugs
 to the web team. Was never fixed.)


 3) Look at this product page:

http://www.adobe.com/products/

 Why does it look like an abandoned store? It looks like a outsourced Drupal
 project. Where's the flair? The edge?



 Adobe.com makes me want to submit a bid to fix it.

 What happened? I *REALLY* want to know! I just don't get it.

 My apologies to the list for this rant. I really hope this gets the
 attention of someone significant @ Adobe.

 thank you.

Re: [Flashcoders] how many coders here actually have a degree related to computer science?

2008-08-24 Thread Jason Van Cleave
A huge portion of getting a decent job or freelance work is getting your
name out there and building experience by finishing projects.

College was a great place for me to meet people with connections in the
field. I dropped out when one of the adjunct professors hired me, that lead
to a job at an agency, more freelance work, relevant experience, etc. I
eventually finished the degree years later (mostly just to do it).

So yeah, send out the portfolios and see what happens. People should let you
know what they are looking for. Often it takes time so I wouldn't drop out
without having something concrete to go on.

 I need a a stable job ASAP; yet, I have two more years to go before I
 complete my degree in computer science; thus, I am wondering how difficult
 it would be to find a programming related job without a degree?  Do all I
 need is a portfolio, or does the piece of paper really make the difference
 at an entry level?

 I also have a background in fine art if that helps.

  hi Ali

 I'm working on a similar project, also using progressive download. What
 I'm doing is using a combination of 2 approaches:
 1. Divide the flv into smaller sections - we've gone for 5-8 mins, which
 is  still fairly big I think (otherwise your users are using bandwidth
 they probably don't need) and
 2. Within each clip have section chapter links that load in as they
 become
 available. You'll need to use cue points for this. I still haven't worked
 out the finer points of this approach, mostly because I'm using the
 chapter links as 'summary' markers also.

 If not I guess my best plan is to slice up my long flv into lots of
 little ones and make a custom seekbar that shows the chapters and
 allows the user to skip from chapter to chapter.

 What do yous think?

 The only bug with NetStream that I know of is if you're spamming it with

 new streams too quickly.  The solution is to throttle the requests.

 A safe time to wait between changing the streams is 250ms.

 It's really simple to write a queueing system that does this.  You just
 overwrite the same variable and reset the timer.

 var currentStream:String;
 var timer:Timer = new Timer(250, 1);
 timer.addEventListener(TimerEvent.TIMER, onTimerEvent);

 function queueNewStream(value:String):void
 {
currentStream = value;
timer.reset();
timer.start();
 }

 function onTimerEvent(event:Event):void
 {
netStream.pause();
netStream.close();
netStream.load(currentStream);

 Dimensions:  694 x 440
 Framerate: 25fps

 Audio codec ID: 2 (which means it's an MP3)
 Audio datarate:  96 kbits/s
 (also the audio sounds stereo to me...)

 Video codec ID: 4 (which means it's On2 VP6)
 Video datarate:  400 kbits/s



 The main issue that's likely causing the stuttering is the constant
 motion
 throught the frame area.  In my own video work I've been able to reduce
 that
 by bumping up the keyframe rate, but that of course will increase the file
 size and probably the workload on someone's CPU when it's played.

 I'd experiment with reducing the frame rate to something like 15 fps, give
 it a keyframe rate of one every 5 frames, convert the audio to mono and try
 tweaking the datarates of the video and the audio to get a good balance of
 visual quality and CPU bandwidth use.  If your encoder software lets you
 set
 how many passes it makes during video encoding you can set it to use two
 passes, which can improve visual quality at lower video datarates.

 I hope that helps... ^_^

 It's not that bad. I think the fact that there are a lot of hard edes and
 contiuous movement that any faults are more obvious.

 The stuttering was occuring as the video was playing and the file had not
 yet fully loaded (though was not halted to fill the buffer).

 The strange lines you mention appear to be the video player trying to keep
 up with the display.

 Despite all this, I think the quality isn't too bad.

 I'd try out a few variations on the encoding to see if that helps.

 I don't think I've ever tried to play such a large video on my laptop
 before. My last video project was 200x150.

 I used 400kbit on a 694x440 movie, with 96kbps audio in stereo, on2vp6.
 frame rate same as source, and automatic keyframes.

 How does it stutter, as it is buffering and than resumes - or does the
 video
 has strange lines appearing like it
 the video doesnt perform well.

 I think it is very strange, and I cant understand that I havent heard about
 this issue before!

  What settings did you give the encoder - maybe your bitrate is too high.
  It
  certainly stutters on my machine. Maybe you have too many keyframes.

[Flashcoders] AS3: public override function set x

2008-06-26 Thread Jason Van Cleave
I have a class that extends Sprite. When the x value of the Class is changed
I want to know so I can change another value.

So I tried

override public function set x(n:Number)
{
   super.x=n;
   //added functionality would happen here
}
but I get Incompatible override

So I could build a setX method but this wouldn't prevent Class.x from being
directly changed

public function setX(n:Number)
{
x=n;
//added functionality would happen here
}

Any suggestions?

 In the playerglobal.swc you can find the DisplayObject.x declaration :

 You must keep the same argument name and the same return type in your

 public override function set x(value:Number):void
 {
  super.x = value ;
  // custom

 In your code you forget the :void ?

 Dave, are you asking for a way to do that entirely external to Flash? That
 is, Flash and BitmapData can grab stills from a video stream very easily. I
 am assuming you are asking about something else.

 However, if that's all you need, here is a quick example. You may be able
 to
 do away with Glimpse altogether.

 var vid:Video = new Video();
 addChild(vid);

 var cam:Camera = Camera.getCamera();
 vid.attachCamera(cam);

 stage.addEventListener(MouseEvent.CLICK, captureCamera, false, 0, true);
 function captureCamera(evt:MouseEvent): void {
var bmd:BitmapData = new BitmapData(vid.width, vid.height);
bmd.draw(vid)

var bmp:Bitmap = new Bitmap(bmd);
bmp.x = vid.width;
addChild(bmp);
 }

 There are some things to think about, though.

 1) Flash must be able to see the camera. Drivers may be an issue.

 2) Sometimes, only one application can have access to the camera. Running
 Glimpse at the same time as Flash may prevent Flash access. For example, on
 my Mac, Flash can only get a garbled still if iChat has the camera already.

 3) To answer your other question, just about any webcam will work in Flash.
 Just find the most current, reliable-name (for ongoing support), feature
 vs.
 price (pan, tilt, etc.) camera you like. A generalization, perhaps, but
 there's less of a compatibility issue than you might think.

Re: [Flashcoders] Multiple query strings in a single URL

2008-05-15 Thread Jason Van Cleave
I think

FlashVars, 'whichSection=' +
querySt('page'),'loggedin='+querySt('login'));
  needs to be

FlashVars, 'whichSection=' +
querySt('page')+'loggedin='+querySt('login');

You may want to check out SWFObject 1.5 that would make this much more
readable ie:
var so = new SWFObject(your.swf, swfID, 100, 100, 8, #ff);
so.addVariable(whichSection, querySt(page));
so.addVariable(loggedin, querySt(login));

it also has a function that grabs params from the url

 Howdy all,

 I currently have a app that pulls a single variable from the URL

 I.e. =  index.html?page=2

 I pass that info into my program with FlashVars using:

 script src=Scripts/AC_RunActiveContent.js
 type=text/javascript/script
 script type=text/javascript
 function querySt(ji) {
hu = window.location.search.substring(1);
gy = hu.split();
for (i=0;igy.length;i++) {
ft = gy[i].split(=);
if (ft[0] == ji) {
return ft[1];
}
}
 }
 /script


 snippet from the Flash swf embed

 FlashVars, 'whichSection=' + querySt('page'));

 end snippet

 So querySt parses the value of 2 and passes it into my whichsection just
 fine.

 Now I have to have two things passed in:

 I.e. Index.html?page=2login=1

 Can FlashVars handle this??

 I tried:

 FlashVars, 'whichSection=' + querySt('page'),'loggedin=' +
 querySt('login'));


 But loggedin is NOT getting picked up inside of Flash.

 Can Flash handle multiple query strings being passed into itself?

 Did I explain this well enough?

Re: [Flashcoders] addCuePoint - AS2

2008-04-28 Thread Jason Van Cleave
I don't think cuepoints are anything inherit to Flash video/NetStream class
but just information that is injected in the flv metadata during encoding.

If you create an array to hold cuepoints as objects and track them with an
interval watching NetStream.time you should be able to create the same
effect.

You could also dig into the mx.video.FLVPlayback and
mx.video.CuePointManager classes to see how Macromedia did it.

Re: [Flashcoders] AS3 Classes and FLA not working together

Create a Class for AmlakPanel instead of letting Flash generate it may help

 hello Omar,

 I'm developing a graphical editor for e-learning content using AIR. The
 Document Class works fine for me. The only problem I had was that I had to
 make it extend MovieClip, and put a stop() in its first frame. You have
 to
 use a stop(), or else your app will flash indefinetely. While I was
 testing it inside Flash, the document class extended Sprite and everything
 worked. But, when I tryed the real application (installing the AIR file),
 it
 didn't work.

 I don't think you need to create an instance of your Document Class.
 Something is wrong in your code or your .fla

 Put a stop() in the first frame of you app, and give a feedback for us.

[Flashcoders] AS3 Coding Conventions Question

2008-03-16 Thread Jason Van Cleave
This is a pretty nice doc and I agree/use most of these while doing as3
development. The use of ALL_CAPS constants makes sense to me but I am not
understanding what the purpose would be to not make the variable be the same
as the value.

For instance, this is what Adobe says and does from:

http://opensource.adobe.com/wiki/display/flexsdk/Coding+Conventions

--
Constant names

Use all uppercase letters with underscores between words: OFF, DEFAULT_WIDTH
.

The words in the identifier must match the words in the constant value if it
is a String:

public static const FOO_BAR:String = fooBar;

--

For me it makes more sense and helps consistency to make it:

public static const FOO_BAR:String = FOO_BAR;


Anyone have a defense to Adobe's position?

with this i could load xml and eventually get an XMLList with

private function onXMLLoaded(e:Event):void
{
var xml:XML = new XML(e.target.data);
var items:XMLList = xml.item;
}

Now that we have move it over to a .net enviroment the output is like

?xml version=1.0 encoding=UTF-8?
string xmlns=http://tempuri.org/;
photos

/string

Now I can't get an XMLList from this. I've tried just stripping it out with
this approach

but nothing good

Any insights?

 Has anyone got experience with using flash and Amazons S3?

 What I have to do is send this key to amazon

 Amazon then returns a unique key to me.

 I've been trying to use getURL method but all that does is open a web page

Re: [Flashcoders] forceSmoothing in a MovieClipLoader

Re: [Flashcoders] Error in Flex for automatically created classes

I usually would break out the thumbs into their own class with a

function displayThumbs()

for (i = 0; i  modelsArray.length; i++)
{
var img_mcl:MovieClipLoader = new MovieClipLoader();
img_mcl.addListener(this);
var path:String = http://www.bottero.net/2008/images/modelos/s/ref;
+ modelsArray[i] + s.png;
img_mcl.loadClip(path, thumb_mc.img_mc);

Re: [Flashcoders] [AS3] how to tell Loader on which clip you are going to load?

2008-01-27 Thread Jason Van Cleave
Since myClip doesn't exist shouldn't you just deal with the loader?

On Jan 26, 2008 4:57 AM, Leonardo Scattola - New Vision srl 
[EMAIL PROTECTED] wrote:

 Hello everyone!
 I wrote a little class extending the AS3 Loader class.
 In my new loader I've added a reference to the clip to which attach my
 content, so that I can write

 myLoader.loadImage(url, clip:MovieClip)

 where loadImage is a static method; in an ideal world myLoader will
 always load an image, and will fire an Event.INIT when the image has
 been loaded; I have defined a listener for this event, like this:

 function onLoadSuccessful(myEvent:Event) {
trace(myEvent.target.loader.myClip);
 }

 where myEvent.target is the loaderInfo property in my event, and
 myEvent.target.loader is an instance of the myLoader object;
 myEvent.target.loader.myClip will thus be the reference to the clip on
 which I will attach my image.


 The problem is: when the image doesn't exist, I would listen for an
 IOError. In this case, I have defined another listener:
 function onLoadError(myEvent:IOEvent) {
trace(myEvent.target.loader.myClip);
 }

 But this raises an exception if the image fails to load (because the
 file doesn't exist), and tells me that the loader is not accessible
 because the event was fired too early to access the loaderInfo property.

 How can I access the myClip property in the onLoadError event?

 Thanks in advance.

you could use flvtool2 to get the metadata server-side and store it in a

  Unfortunately, I discovered a bug with the code I posted. The

  onProgress.
 
 
  Matthias,
 
  I have never had any unwanted sound behavior when I use:
 
  ns.play(src);
  ns.pause(true);
 
  If you are hearing an audio blip, it's simple to fix by applying a
  SoundTransform with the volume set to 0 before you play/pause the
 NetStream.
 
  var transform:SoundTransform = ns.soundTransform;
  transform.volume = 0;
  ns.soundTransform = transform;
  ns.play(src);
  ns.pause(true);
 
  For the sake of this discussion, I'm going to assume we're talking
 about
  progressive downloads as opposed to FLVs streamed from FMS.
 
  You cannot attach a single NetStream to multiple Video instances.
 
  If you fully load an FLV and caching is turned on (never a guarantee,
  but likely) then the FLV will load instantly for the next NetStream
 that
  loads it.  HOWEVER, if it is not cached and you start a second
 NetStream
  to load the same FLV before it is finished loading, it will load the
  entire file again since it's technically not cached according to the
  browser.
 
  I disagree that waiting for metadata is really ugly.  How is any
  client, Flash or otherwise, supposed to know anything about a file
 it's
  loading before it starts loading it?  The only way it could is if you
  hard-code it ahead of time because you know what it is.
 
  If you're waiting for Flash to determine it dynamically, it has to
  access the file to get the header information (metadata) that
 describes
  the FLV.  Because you can play/pause, the metadata can come before you
  even addChild() the video to the display stack.
 
  I don't see how any of this could be considered really ugly but if
 you
  do end up writing a psychic script that can determine a file's header
  data without ever accessing the file, be sure to let us know.  ;)
 
  The ByteArray idea might work, I've never tried it, and it would
  probably take you anywhere from 5-15 minutes to try it out.  I'm not
  sure what benefit it would provide you other than guaranteeing that it
  would be stored in memory if browser cache was turned off.  At best,
 you
  might get a few milliseconds faster start-up loading from a ByteArray
 vs
  from cache.

[Flashcoders] Re: IE6 problem with SWFAddress?

2007-01-29 Thread jason van cleave
I have ran into this nightmare and am still not sure what causes it. Just as I 
thought I had it beat it I would do a as2js call and the swf would disappear in 
IE. Something else I have seen is Firefox freeze up the swf. If I had to 
retroubleshoot it again I would look for this:

-Are you using a getURL(javascript:jsFunction()) type call?

I have had your problem mixing these in with ExternalInterface. I would first 
try switching getURL javascript calls to ExternalInterface.

Another solution I have heard of is using setTimeout on the Javascript side to 
delay opening the window for a second

I ended up hacking up SwfAddress and moving it off ExternalInterface to the 
SwfObject/Javascript/ASGateway here:

http://blog.deconcept.com/code/intkit/

This has been my most solid in my testing (and lets SwfAdress work with Flash 7)

Good luck.

Turn windows sharing on the the mac. Mount that share as a drive in Windows. I

Have Flash open on the Mac with all the correct fonts for the project. I edit

VirtueDesktop is great for this, allowing me to switch back and forth between 
platforms running fullscreen:

Sharepoints is great for setting up multiple shares on the mac:

I have. I tried FlashDevelop a while back and am planning on giving it another 
go and with the AS3 stuff I have just seen. I like how Sepy works with 
native .flp files and had versions on both the mac and pc. (I also have a

After hearing quite a bit about it I got TextMate this weekend and started to 
set it up. Looks very clean and  good replacement for BBEdit but I was suprised 
with it that it didn't have ftp support built in (without transmit). 

I work on multiple machines and platforms and am dying for a consistent editor 
between them. Flex/Eclipse looks like it has all I want but it will probably be 
another year before I will be able to be 100% over to AS3.
