One of the reasons why Flash video's become so popular with developers is the ease with which you can customize video playback controls. As with many things in Flash, there are a variety of ways to customize video controls ranging from simple and limited to extremely flexible and more complex. In this chapter we'll look at three different ways to customize the controls for the FLVPlayback component. First we'll learn to modify the design of the prebuilt skins that come with Flash. Then we'll learn to use and customize the individual pieces that make up those skins and lastly we'll create video controls from scratch using standard design tools like Photoshop and Fireworks and give them functionality using ActionScript.
In the next movie we'll start by looking at how you can modify the look of the skins that ship with Flash.
