  • Mac+Flash+video=HELP!

    Meanwhile on another project....

    I need to create a program that is cross platform that only has 2 buttons: play video and go to webpage.I thought I'd do it in flash with the new embedded video feature, but what I didn't know was that on older Mac OSs, pre OSX you need the carbonlib installed for this to work. I want better compatability then this. Should I just convert the movie to bitmaps? I have tried turning the project into an interactive quicktime- the play video button takes you to the second frame where the video is, but it doesn't play. It will play if I then hit the quicktime player play button, but extremely slow- like 1 frame every 3 sec.

    I have no problem making two versions, one for windows and one for Mac as the video file is only 3.5 minutes long.

    If you use Flash you could always export the .swf as an older version so the macs can handle it. Like version 4 or maybe 5. Then the button could play the video and open a web page. Just a thought...
