Flash Video Player

This video player was designed in Flash using ActionScript 3. The data for each video can either be stored in an XML file or a MySQL database. The script makes a call to a PHP file that pulls the data from the database and creates a properly formatted XML file used by the action script. It is possible to just skip the PHP/MySQL and create the XML file directly. In this particular case though, the video information already existed in a database and is used by other parts of the website including an interface to upload or change the video information so it was necessary to integrate the action script call with the existing system.
