Flash-Ajax Video Component


What Is the Flash Ajax Video Component?

The Adobe® Flash® Ajax Video (FAVideo) component is a small, open source Flash component that you can use to provide video playback within an Ajax application. It exposes all of the formatting and video playback controls necessary to build a video player customized entirely using HTML and Javascript.

  • One line instantiation makes it trivial to integrate video playback within an HTML and Javascript interface.
  • Simple APIs provide the ability to manipulate video size, position, and scaling prior to or during video playback.
  • Video playback parameters such as playback, video seek, cue points, and audio control allow sophisticated programmatic integration with Ajax applications.

When Should I Use the FAVideo?

The FAVideo component is useful in the following situations:

  • You need a video playback solution which is available to the largest possible audience. The FAVideo component will work on all systems that have Adobe Flash Player 8 installed, currently more than 95% of all computers connected to the internet.
  • You want to include video functionality in an Ajax application and work with JavaScript while scripting.
  • You need a compact video playback solution. The FAVideo component is only 15k and leverages the widely distributed Flash Player which is about 1 megabyte.
  • You want full creative control over presentation of the video within your application.
