real knobs spin forever? just work it like a slider but update % and position via max/min distance and maintain the math. 3 rotations is max slider x3. Keeping track of rotation works but you'll have to calculate for negative rotation. B. On Fri, Jan 16, 2009 at 1:42 PM, Eric E. Dolecki

The file reference has an upload, the list is just an array of fileReference Objects. You would step through your list uploading file by file (better for handling errors vs. success than to just loop them). something like: file = fileList[i] file.upload(url) B. On Fri, May 15, 2009 at 11:19 AM,

I believe it would still be on top if it was from the start. Full screen doesn't change the swf's internal index. So with the video object's heightwidth, modify that on the resize event. You can set that to what ever value you want. So if your control bar is bellow the vid you could do
