Hello. im not sure where to post this so here it goes.... i want to do something like this (http://www.apple.com/mac/)... if you notice like in the middle of the page, there is a picture that says, "click to play" and when you click, the video starts playing, and just underneath it there are more videos and when you click on them, another video starts playing. I want to do this, can somebody PLEASE help me? I would REALLY appreciate it... :D

you could use iframes or javascript, but iframes that would take alot of work...

if know one answer i will post an example with iframes....

but you would have to have your own video player src

For more control, the only real option is using Flash.

09-24-2007, 09:03 PM
yeh flash, but flash is expensive for the program and it takes along time if your a newbie in flash, and flash takes way more work, dont use flash, and flash SUCKS HAHAHAHA,, sry to all those flashers out there, lol.

I don't like flash and I hate sites that use too much of it, but there's no way around using it for having a controlled video player. Java, maybe, but that's harder to learn and arguably less compatible.

The cost of it isn't an issue. It's a simple decision then... get it or don't.

"I want something that can only be done in flash." ...so... get flash.

Pretty simple. Not necessarily good.
