Video-ANE

ANE for iOS to play videos on top of everything.
Work in progress && iOS only at the moment.
Displaying video in a AIR mobile project using Starling is complicated:
Flash display list Video object is not efficient
StageVideo may not have any things related to Starling on top of it.
VideoTexture are still not available on mobile.
The goal of this ANE is to display a video, on top of everything. So let’s say it’s a StageVideo reverse class.

Kalley’s Machine Plus Cats
From Jon Alexander:

Kalley’s Machine Plus Cats is one of the Best New Apps in the AppStore starting September 11. We did it with straight-up Flash and Air.
I’ve used Flash since the 90s. So we just used the old school Display List and vector graphics to be able to scale to any resolution. The same exact stuff gets pushed to the iPhone and iPad. We’re amped because that means we’re already set to have crisp graphics for the iPhone 6 Plus.
The vector graphics allowed us to do some shape tween animation that you can’t get with bitmaps for unique stuff like a boiler that swells from pressure.
It’s exciting for us to see Apple take such an interest in our app. And it’s cool to know that it happened with Flash.

Adobe Air StageVideo Stage3D Issue

iOS Development using Adobe AIR and Flash/AS3

Make sure to test on a device to reproduce the issue:

  1. Stage2D turns opaque/black when NetStream is attached or disposed
  2. Tap any blue circle to toggle Stage3D visibility on and off
  3. The blue circles should overlay transparently on the Stage3D scene (AIR logo)
  4. Tapping a blue circle removes it from the display list Removing a whole row/column of blue circles reveals the Stage3D beneath the 2D stage
  5. Tap the green buttons from left to right to see the issue
  6. Button1: Instantiates the NetStream - so far, so good
  7. Button2: Attaches the NetStream to StageVideo - 2D stage goes opaque
  8. Button3: Makes Stage3D invisible and plays a video - 2D stage behaves normally again
  9. Tap a blue circle to see normal 2D stage behavior
  10. Button4: Disposes the NetStream - 2D stage goes opaque
