ActionScript API for the Longtail Player (aka JW)

 Feb, 16 - 2009   2 comments   Uncategorized

Took me forever to figure out how to set Longtail Player content via ActionScript.

I tried some other stuff, but I couldn’t get both the preview image and the flv video to work the way it would if you used the HTML-embed set-and-forget method.

//videoView is a reference to the JW Player instance on stage
videoView.config.image = img // path to img as String
videoView.config.file = flv // path to flv as String

    I’m assuming this is only for v4 of the player, right?

    Probably. It’s an older article, and we haven’t upgraded yet. I’ll try to remember to leave an answer when we do.
