Roll Your Own
Got a web site? Got Videos? Music? Pictures? Want to put them on your web site but don't have a player or you're not crazy about the free ones out there? How about "Rolling Your Own." There're a lot of flash authoring programs out there that can help you do that, but the one that sticks out for me is KoolMoves. Not only does it come with a bunch of real cool Media Players in all styles for all occasions, but if you're willing to do a litte coding, you can build your own!
And with this tutorial, you can get started by learning how to build a simple Flash 9, Action Script 3 Media Player. So go grab a copy of KoolMoves and let's get started.
