Adobe Flash-Ajax Video Component

Recently made available on Adobe Labs is the Flash-Ajax Video Component, a small, open source Flash component that you can use to provide video playback within an Ajax application. It exposes all of the formatting and video playback controls necessary to build a video player customized entirely using HTML and JavaScript.

Key features of this component are:

  • One line instantiation makes it trivial to integrate video playback within an HTML and JavaScript interface.
  • Simple APIs provide the ability to manipulate video size, position, and scaling prior to or during video playback.
  • Video playback parameters such as playback, video seek, cue points, and audio control allow sophisticated programmatic integration with Ajax applications.
