Using a NetStreamPlayTransition to transition between different bit rate videos

Graeme Bull authored this on Oct 26, 2010

In this tutorial we talk about using a NetStreamPlayTransition, which is a class available to tell the Flash Player to transition from one video to another, to get between one bit rate video and another. This gives your users a better experience in cases that their bandwidth may differ from the video being streamed out. This tutorial is writtin in AS3 and covers a few best practices and tips and hints at playing video with the new play2() method instead of the play() method.
