[Pro] FLV Player resizing issue

Hello everyone,
I was playing around with the FLV player for the first time, and was curious about working with it. It seems that when it is played in a browser, it is resized. Wondering if anyone could clue me in on what im doing wrong.

I want it to fill my black box as seen in my Freeway interface:

But, when I view it in my browser, the video player size is reduced during playback. I have it uploaded already so you can see here:

Really appreciate any help. Thanks!

-Vic

I have not really an idea, but if you want to have a player area of 860x274 but an actual movie height of 720px, it’s not taking me wonder that the player is resizing its content to in this case 274px height with the result of a width of approximately 580px (from 1280px).

I think you have to prepare your movie to exact fit the desired area (what is probably not really easy to do) cause a player can’t “crop” its content such as a graphic item can.

Just one of my cents in this case.

Cheers

Hey Thomas,
thanks for taking a look. I am not really expecting to fit the box exactly, but I was curious about the resizing from Freeway workspace to Browser. I was wondering if I have any way to adjust the video in Freeway to fit the box better. The Action palette options for the FLV Player do not show anything.

The truth is on the field (a famous german football wisdom)

So the truth is in the browser - in a lot of things.

What the action does (not sure, used years ago) is just to take a screenshot of the very first key-frame of your movie, just to give a user an impression of the box content.

What the action does furthermore is telling you the size your movie hosted box should be (and a proposal of optimum height)

I was wondering if I have any way to adjust the video in Freeway to fit the box better. The Action palette options for the FLV Player do not show anything.

So the above is telling me, that there is nothing you could do except of

a) resizing the movie hosting div
b) resizing the movie to match the movie carrying div

It is anyway to rethink the use of flash (media) cause it isn’t supported on lot’s of mobile devices and I know a lot on board that have flash enabled - so …?

Cheers
