Ad Insertion - Macromedia Flash Flashcom

Hi folks, this is a pre-sales question really but everything seemed to point me to here... The feature spec for FMS mentions that it can perform "Ad Insertion". So, how? I've searched around but can find precious little reference to it. I've played about with using an XML playlist to load a series of streams from the FMS and that works great, but Ad Insertion kind of implies that the ad becomes indistinguishably part of the content - concatenating them together as far as the end use is concerned? Am I missing something - other than headache tablets after messing ...

    Default Ad Insertion

    Hi folks,

    this is a pre-sales question really but everything seemed to point me to
    here... The feature spec for FMS mentions that it can perform "Ad Insertion".
    So, how? I've searched around but can find precious little reference to it.
    I've played about with using an XML playlist to load a series of streams from
    the FMS and that works great, but Ad Insertion kind of implies that the ad
    becomes indistinguishably part of the content - concatenating them together as
    far as the end use is concerned? Am I missing something - other than headache
    tablets after messing with this stuff :)

    You're not missing anything, but it can be seamless as far as the user
    experience goes.

    What FMS can do is play video files in sequence without input from the client.
    Rather than presenting a playlist to the client, the list resides on the FMS
    server, and FMS feeds the appropriate video files(s) to the client. If the
    flash client application (the .swf) is well designed, the end user will see a
    single stream with no breaks or rebuffering.

    Hi Jay,

    thanks very much for the reply. Are there any pointers anywhere on doing this
    kind of thing _well_? I'm guessing starting buffering a second stream into a
    seperate clip before the first one is finished and then bringing the second
    movie clip to the fore and playing would be one way to achieve this kind of
    seemlessness?
