[Dreamweaver Talk]Re: Seeking help with controllers on Flash Videos (FLV files) from Dreamweaver's Insert command
Hi Any 'easy' system is, by its nature, going to be limited, so you'll probably need to leave the cosy cosseting of DW and delve into the code ;-)
I don't know anything about CS4 as I don't use it, but for adding video and controlling flv files, you could look into some simple-to- use jQuery tools such as http://www.flowplayer.org/ which may offer what you need.
