FLASH & FLEX: FREE FOR ALL (even Linux)!

As of yesterday, for the first time EVER, nearly everyone in the world has access to a FREE, ubiquitous application runtime, and a FREE application development toolkit for that runtime! Of course I’m referring to Flash Player 9 and the free Flex 2 SDK. To show people the power of these two technologies I’ve recorded a screen cam of me building a YouTube video player on Linux. Check it out!

    i need to implement a video player in my flex website. This video should read a youtube url.
    it worked using an flv player but when i try to set the source of the player to a youtube url, it doesn’t work.
    any ideas ??
    Best regards

    YouTube does some really tricky things with their FLV URLs to prevent this.
