[Dreamweaver Talk]Seeking help with controllers on Flash Videos (FLV files) from Dreamweaver's Insert command
I have been so happy to find the CS4 Adobe Media Encoder-made FLV files performing so well, and love the way the new Dreamweaver makes it so easy to get them into a web page.
However, I've not been able to find (app help, internet searching) clear information about how to get some control over the controllers (Clear, Corona, Halo), or if it's a reasonably easy task to use other controllers.
For example: one thing that I find annoying (and my client agrees) with the Clear and Corona controllers is that they appear OVER the video. Though it's possible to click once and then move the mouse out to make them disappear, that's not always obvious to web users. In usability testing, I've observed many users watch the entire video with the controller there, covering a good portion of the view.
Why can't I choose to have the controller sit below the video? What about an option to have it auto-disappear after 10 seconds?
And what about an option to make the "chrome" of the Halo controller be charcoal?
Anyway, any help with these issues (esp. the persistent controller) would be greatly appreciated, as would pointers to reference sites or books (or extensions?).
