FLVPlayback Custom UI Components

It is also possible to create custom FLVPlayback controls by using FLVPlayback custom UI components individually.

The FLVPlayback custom UI components enable you to customize the appearance of the FLVPlayback controls within your FLA file and to see the results when you preview your web page. However, these components are not designed to be scaled. Always edit a movie clip and its contents to a specific size. For this reason, it is generally best to have the FLVPlayback component on the Stage at the desired size with the autoSize and maintainAspectRatio properties set to false.

To begin, simply drag the FLVPlayback custom UI components that you want from the Components panel and place them where you want them on the Stage; then give each one an instance name in the Property inspector (see Figure 7). After your components are on the Stage, you can edit them as you do with any other symbol.

If you open the components, you see that each one is set up a little differently from the others.
