Q: While following along with the course, I encountered the following error in Flash CS4: 
1120: Access of undefined property content_mc.
What is causing this error?

A: Flash is looking for something (the content movieclip) with the instance name “content_mc” but it is not finding it. Select the content movieclip on the stage. In the Properties panel give it an instance name of “content_mc”. Make sure there are no spaces before or after. That should resolve the error.

Q: What is the best strategy for integrating 720/60P HD video into a website? Would creating a blank page that opens in full HD resolution be the best way to view the full quality of the HD video file?

A: A video file that large would just be unreasonable for most users to open.  These settings are a good place to start: 600x400is
24-25fps
Audio: 128kbps
Codec: On2VP6
Bitrate level: 1,000kbps
Bitrate Encoding: VBR These are just recommendations, and can be modified to preference. Also keep in mind that in Flash, one of the buttons that can be added is a full screen button, which is part of the skins.
