Video play - disable button. Video pause - enable button.

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I am trying to figure out a way to enable and disable a button depending on wether a video is in pause (enable) or play (disable) condition.


I have tried to figure out if this can be done using only JavaScript coding but with no success.


Can it be done with JS or is there a need to use ActionScript in the fla? (I hope not!).


Please find the code below fyi. (Note it refers to external video_shell.fla, .flv and .swf files built using Adobe Flash CS3.)


Can someone look at the code supplied and point me in the right direction please?


Thanks very much.


codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,0,0" width="490" height="367" id="video_shell" 


value="#e5e5e5" />    
allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" allowFullScreen="false" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" 



I need something along the lines of:


function enabledisable()
   if(video is not playing)
   document.getElementById('button').disabled = false;
   else if (video is playing)
         document.getElementById('button').disabled = true;

Resolved it myself by cheating.

I've placed the code below fyi.


function disableButton()
var tempdur="a duration value from program";

document.getElementById('button').disabled = false; 
else if((myValue=correct)
setTimeout("document.getElementById('button').disabled = true;",1)&&setTimeout("document.getElementById('button').disabled = false;",tempdur);
