Embedding video in an interactive layout, OR achieving relat

Post by AWR » 16 Feb 2013, 11:32

I am working with an interactive layout (QXP 9.5) to create a presentation that incorporates text, photos, animation, audio and video. Everything works except: I have .flv video playing as an external file. After compiling, I convert the .swf to .exe for standalone playing of the production. Video playback then is a problem because it looks for the .flv file in a defined path, not a relative one, so unless the target computer has that video file on the same drive and in the same directory, it won't play. Is there ANY way of QXP recognizing a relative path to the video file?
Or, how do I embed the video into QXP, so that it's not looking for an external file in the swf? and is that my only option to make the output .swf/exe truly standalone? I'd prefer to make the external video playback work, to cut down on qxp filesize.
