I have 3 problems with I need some guidance with. My website is one that streams video. I use in the main windows media, but like to update to flash video.
1. I note with the bluevoda website builder that the flash settings is gear up for .swf flash rather than .flv. Is there a way of using the latter?
2. How can I configure my website (while using bluevoda website builder) to be user friendly to firefox browser
3. How can my viewer select another video (and load a new page in the middle of watching a video) .ie load a new page and cancel the old page. Just to expand. I find that if I load a new video with a new page, a tab is created and the browers is now playing bother videos. One from the orginal, and secondly for the new page.


You help is really needed.

Use a flv to swf flash converter, loads of free ones, search for them on Google

Instal Firefox and use it to preview your site in as you build, Change your site layout as required.

3.How can my viewer select another video (and load a new page in the middle of watching a video) .ie load a new page and cancel the old page. Just to expand.

Set your page up so the viewer doesn't have the option to load more than one video at a time? Why would someone want to load a second video in the middle of watching the first?

Thanks about firefox, I will try.

It could be that the converter is not a good one. I convert to swf al lthe time and quality seems fine. I use wondershare, you might want to try that.

I would have to see your site to fully understand your last question.

Thanks again for reply so fast. I was simply asking --How do I do this?

Your advice was for me: "Set your page up so the viewer doesn't have the option to load more than one video at a time?"

If you have one of those viewers that has many videos listed within it then the option to start more than one video at a time can't be stopped... Let's just hope that your visitors have enough inside their brains to understand if they play more than one video at a time then they will hear more than one recording?

Thanks again

So are you saying there is no way to solve this problem, apart from hoping my viewers have brains.

I suspect there is a soultion, but not skilled enough to work it out.

Well... If I go to youtube, I can click on two, three, four videos if I like.. doesn't sound very good if I do...

So if Google (who own youtube) can't find a solution, what chance is there for us?

You have a point there. I will set it up and give you the link for your comments. But I would rather send you the link via na email rather than in this open forum.

Thanks again...... you bring hope. without hope there is only dispair.

Send me a link via email sure... I'll have a look, it may well be that I am misunderstanding you , but without seeing I can't tell.

Just email me by going to my website (http://www.marinckygroup.co.uk) and it's on the top banner, never leave your email address in a post on the forum. If you are quick enough you can remove it.

Now that I have seen your page, this (http://www.rich-media-project.com/php-streaming-products/php-flv-player-chapters-media/) is the sort of thing you could do with. It will cost you around £65, but well worth it.
