Flash Video and AS3 article on FFDMag

Aug 18, 2009 Author: Lisa Larson-Kelley | Filed under: Books & Articles, Resources

Chaim Sajnovsky, a prolific contributor to the FlashMedia FMS mailing list and a FMS/Flash consultant, recently authored an informative article on working with video in ActionScript 3.0 that I just ran across.

It goes over the basics of NetConnections, NetStreams and Streams, and how to work with metadata.

You can find it on page 62 of the February issue. Download the PDF for free!

Streaming Media West discount

Aug 18, 2009 Author: Lisa Larson-Kelley | Filed under: Announcements

I’m presenting a half-day pre-conference workshop at this year’s Streaming Media West conference in San Jose, on Nov. 16, 2009: Developing a Rich Video Player for the Adobe Flash Platform. I presented this workshop a few months ago at Streaming Media East — the first time I had given more than a one-hour session — to a nice full room. Based on the feedback from that session, I’m fleshing out the workshop with more hands-on exercises and real-world examples.

And remember, Streaming Media West also has an exhibit hall that is open pre-registered attendees for free! You can register for this free pass at the same URL above.

Hope to see you there!
