Creating a video player?

Posted 27 November 2013 - 09:32 AM

Sorry for not attaching a prefix; not sure under which this goes. I'm a total newbie to the Flash/ActionScript scene, so sorry for my newbosity. ^^

I want to start posting my own video series on my website, but HTML5 requires a bit more bandwidth than I'd like (on top of lack of support form some browsers). I'd just like to know what steps I'd take to start on building my own flash player, so everything runs nicely like on YouTube (I don't want to use YT, by the way).

Can anyone help out? :D

Well, outside of the fact that I'm going to need to reencode videos to FLV and possibly be forced into getting that Adobe Flash studio thinga-ma-bob, there's not much on making a custom flash player.

I swear, everyone has better luck with those effing search engines than me. I'll take a look using those terms and come back if I get any new questions. -.-

Alright, so I don't want to use Adobe Flash Pro or stuff like that... I don't have any dough to shell out on anything. Would there be a way to build a video player without it?

Well.. then.. you'll have a hard time going about running Actionscript then, right?

"alternative to actionscript"
"alternative to flash video"


Honestly your alternative is either get a video player already made, or check into html5.

God dangit... HTML5 it is. Running a Mac with no Windows partition, so FD would be useless for me. Thanks anyway, Modi.
