Learn Flex In A Week is a sound beginning for delving onto the idiosyncrasies of Flash Builder 4. Adobe assumes you will have a high speed internet connection and will be online to view and utilize the video information.
For us non water walkers reality is a bit different. Having enough bandwidth to support the video feeds can be a challenge. It is more palatable to have the video viewing capability available in an offline mode in addition to the on line capabilities.
To accommodate viewing the videos offline I have developed a flash builder 4 web application that run locally which allows the videos to be viewed offline.
We appreciate any contrubution you may be able to make to ensure this as well as other project may continue.
The complete project is located on Sourceforge at project bcsfinawvideo.
Create the MySQL database by importing the assiciated SQL file.
Create a new user "fiawu" and password "passwd" for the MySQL database (minus double quotes).
Use File Transfer Protocol (FTP) to download the videos. I have established a special account and user name for this project.
Password: Archman007 (password is case sensitive and must be typed as it appears here).
Use your favorite FTP client to access and download the video files.
Install the videos in localhost root folder "flv" (minus double quotes).
When you FTP the video files if you target the flv folder on you localhost as the download location you may omit the step above.
Import the Flash Builder 4 Project.
Run the application.
Enjoy viewing the tutorials offline without buffering hassles and pauses in playback.
