Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,

Thread: detect end of external file (swf) from main file

    detect end of external file (swf) from main file

    hi guys,

    I have a video in .flv format that I have converted into .swf. And this .swf file, I have added it in into my main flash file by using Loader. And now, I want to detect when this video will finish playing so that I can go to the next frame which is not looping the video again and again.

    So, any idea on how to do that?

    many thanks...

    My most instant thought would be to get the bytesTotal and somehow divide it with the length of the movie.. But it might be a false lead.

    But, unless there is a "FILE_FINISHED" event or something, then somehow manipulating bytesTotal is my best shot.

    If it's (the FLV) embedded into the timeline (of the loaded SWF), just add an ENTER_FRAME listener and check for currentFrame == totalFrames. When that returns true, the swf has finished playing.

    I can't track on the totalFrames because when I load the flv into the swf file, there is only 1 frame there.

    Any other ideas?
