I am trying to make some movie controls for an AVI file. I would like to
make a pause button. I am currently using:
on mouseDown me
sprite(1).movieRate = 0
While this works I need to click on a seperate 'play' button to un pause the
on mouseDown me
sprite(1).movieRate = 1
Is there a way to make the pause button pause on the first click and unpause
the video if clicked again?
Also, I am having trouble with my rewind button. Unlike the fast forward
button that zooms through the video at a higher speed, the rewind is VERY
slow and seems to be only showign the keyframes. Am i doing something wrong?

Re: video controls
Use mouseUp instead of mouseDown. This gives your user the opportunity
to change their mind about using the button.
on mouseUp me
if sprite(X).movieRate = 1then
sprite(X).movieRate = 0
sprite(X).movieRate = 1
that will toggle between play and pause every time the control is used.
Playing dv files backwards is an iffy situation. Playing the file
forward involves the video player compositing the images between the
keyframes. During normal play this will work just fine.
To play the file in reverse, the dv player needs to reach back to the
previous keyframe and composite the images in reverse order. Depending
on the codec used to compress the file, this may or may not actually be
possible. The compressor is encoding the information so that it will
Some codecs don't show anything when played in reverse. Some only show
the keyframes, some play well.
