Hey everyone,

Is there a way to have multiple pinned videos layered on top of each other, and each video be brought up by a command rather than being there always? I want to have a series of videos coming from a tv, but they currently all start at the same time and you only see one of them since it's on top of all the others.

Thanks for any help in advance.

Thanks Martin!

Until there is a solution to this issue, I'm trying to figure out how to resize my YouTube videos in Flash. I tried using a script from a forum post, but it doesn't seem to work. It causes my interface toolbar to disappear.

Here's the script:
<object style="height: 390px; width: 640px"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.com/v/BfIAKj3Gl1E?version=3"><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always"><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/BfIAKj3Gl1E?version=3" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" width="640" height="390"></object><br />
(I got this from a forum and chose it for a test)

As mentioned, when I place that into the External URL field, my interface doesn't show up at all. Is there a new way to do it? HTML5 works great, but flash is still a big issue for me.

Thanks for any help in advance!

Hi Frank,
Please see: http://gardengnomesoftware.com/wiki/Add ... Tube_Video

For flash the link in the external image/SWF loader only needs to be: http://www.youtube.com/v/BfIAKj3Gl1E?version=3

Martin

Thanks Hopki for the quick reply.

However, my issue isn't around posting a YouTube video in flash, but actually resizing the video window. I currently use the steps you mentioned, but have been searching for a way to make my screen size 300 x 200 instead of the standard size. That way it can fit on smartphone size screens.

Hopefully I'm not missing out on something obvious, haha.

Thanks

Frank

Hi Frank,
Sorry, it will be displayed the size of the video. You can however set the external loader the correct size for the video and then scale it's X/Y by 0.5.
This would scale it down by 50%, but the downside is also the controls scale with it.

Martin,

Makes sense! I could always add a button with a command to increase the size (if the tour needs it).

Thanks for the help.

Frank
