Can't you just use Flash to develop your controls?

I love your topic and all of the interesting tidbits. I'm not sure I see the advantage of using flash, though. One thing I actually like about it are the accessiblity of controls using a right-click mouse button. But you have to know they are there -- and lots of viewers won't. But since I just joined this list... I may have missed relevant discussion on flash video. Cool! Even *I* didn't know they were there! Demonstrating my total ignorance once again... So I could have skipped the Javascript on my web pages (e.g., http://www.straughan.com/vlog/082204.html ) This doesn't solve the scrubber/progress bar problem, but does have just about every other control we could ask for. The advantages of using Flash, from my POV, are these: - Apparently it has the largest installed base - something like 96% of viewers already have the necessary plug-in installed, which is not true of any other format, according to information posted here (and elsewhere). - I needed to learn how to put video on a corporate website and, for the above reason, it seems like the best option - there are situations where you *don't* want controls displayed, just a simple window. > Lisa > > > On 26/08/2004, at 11:52 PM, Deirdr� Straughan wrote: > > > In my ongoing crusade to understand how to format video for the widest > > possible market, I've put up the same video on my blog > > http://deirdres.typepad.com/deirdrestraughan/ , this time in SWF > > format.
