Extra documentation PDFs: custom Video players and XPath API

“This article contains application programming interface (API) documentation for the VideoPlayer class. The VideoPlayer class is a wrapper class for the Video, NetConnection, and NetStream classes, and makes it easy to play FLV files and create custom video players.”

You can download it here:


Next up is the XPath API class, which was available in Flash 7 but now officially documented here:
