After some inquiries we finally added the possibility to customize the Apdev VideoPlayer – only changing colors at this time but it’s a first step in the right direction …
You can now change any color of any object/control that is used within the videoplayer – but check the ApdevVideoPlayerDefaultStyle.as for all the attributes that can be manipulated. And it’s up to you whether you change the attributes using pure ActionScript (1) or our html-version of the videoplayer and pass the values in via flashvars (2). With approach 2 you don’t even have to know ActionScript or open a flash-file – just embed the videoplayer-swf into your website and customize it via flashvars.
For further information, see the upcoming examples.
I just uploaded the new 1.01 version of our Apdev VideoPlayer to google-code.
We fixed/added some features some of you requested, like e.g.
- Volume button behavior changed
- VideoPlayer now fires events when the video’s play-state changes
- and some other minor changes…

We also updated the documentation.
We’re proud to announce our first open source project: the Apdev Videoplayer.
It’s an ActionScript 3.0 script-only videoplayer that we’re releasing under the MIT license. So you can do with it whatever you want – change it, skin it or just tear it apart and use some snippets of our code. It’s up to you.
