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?
