Solutions to make flash video player consecutively play next flash video

If you are watching some TV series or flash videos online, of course you want to watch it one episode after another without interval.
This article is exactly about the options to play flash videos consecutively.

Option 1. Consecutive playing flash videos with Adobe Flash CS3.

This way is basically used to play flash videos consecutively with a few lines of code. Let’s have a look:

Step 1: Open Adobe Flash CS3 and import a FLV file.

import flash video

Step 2: After inputting, rename the layer1 as “Object” and create layer2, rename it as “Action”. On the ActionScript layer, click the dot under the padlock icon. This will lock the ActionScript layer and prevent you from placing objects on it.

rename layerStep 3: Press “F9” to bring out the Actions panel and type the following lines of code.


var myvideoarray:Array=new Array();

myvideoarray[0] = "video1.flv";

myvideoarray[1] = "video2.flv";

myvideoarray[2] = "video3.flv";

var k:Number = 0;[k]);

myvideo.addEventListener(VideoEvent.COMPLETE, loadnext);

function loadnext(myevent:VideoEvent):void {


if (k>= myvideoarray.length) {

Step 4: Save the file in the same folder where you input FLV file at the first beginning.

Use, there are two easy ways to achieve the goal: by interface and by code.

Let’s start to show how by interface:

Next, we will show you how to implement the above demo by code:

Moyea software just released free FLV players for those who have no web hosting to play flash videos in variety of formats. Just copy the Embeded Code and insert a line of code to make it play flash videos consecutively.

For example: the embeded code is shown below

<script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>
<div id="flashcontent" align="center"></div>
<script type="text/javascript">
var so = new SWFObject('mwplayer.swf','player','500','450','9');

Note: the flashvars code highlighted in red is the code to make it play flash videos consecutively.

  2. Hi,
    I'm getting an error, when publishing the movie:
    1046: type haven't been found or it's not a constant in the compilation time: VideoEvent.

    Im using AS3 ..
    Thanks a ton!

  3. Sorry, I didn't copy the error properly, here it is:

    1046: Type was not found or was not a compile-time constant: VideoEvent.

    Thanks again

  4. Sorry for the previous messages, a typo.

    It is working now but it takes time in between videos to load the following one. So there's a flash in between videos .. is there a way to avoid this flash? a preload or something ??

    Thanks once again!

  5. Nice tips. Moyea web player really works well for me. thank you, dude.
