A web player is to play videos online. Usually a web player is embedded into HTML page as a SWF file. A web player needs human to click play button, stop button, adjust the volume etc, and it demands human interaction. And thus ActionScript knowledge is required to create a web player.
Things turns much more complicated than most people expected. I just want a player, and now I need to learn Adobe Flash as well as ActionScript.
We must admit that Adobe Flash CS is really a professional application to flash designers. For internet video marketing, time is money and my products and service would get out of date when we learn how to create a web player with Flash CS. And another important factor we mush take into consideration is that Adobe Flash CS costs much money. With Adobe Flash CS, creating a web player is quite a deal.
Is there any way to skip ActionScript coding? Yes, there is. Moyea software released Moyea PlayerBox 1.1 and realized creating web FLV player without ActionScript skills according to Yahoo Finance news. Moyea software initiates drag and drop edit box which allows users who does not know ActionSccript at all to build a custom web FLV player within shortest possible time. Creating web video player with Moyea PlayerBox is no more than selecting and positioning component with the drag and drop edit box.
Adobe Flash is not responsible for embedding video to website, let alone publishing video or videos to web page. This adds much difficulty to the player creating, since we have to learn how to embed a swf file to web page and how to associate a playlist file to organize the FLV videos. With Moyea PlayerBox, things are much easier. We don’t have to know much HTML coding, since video publishing wizard is available and XML file can be generated to organize the playlist. And tutorials of how to pass parameter in HTML page are available and there is no confusion or complication at all to finish the player creating.
Compared to Adobe Flash, Moyea PlayerBox is a much better solution for average web designers who want to start video marketing within a shorter time.
