I create scripts a while back to scrape yahoo pages to get info on movies playing in local theaters and now want to add a view trailer option simular to the ML3 Netflix view trailer scene.



When the info is scraped, I also put the link to the trailer in an ML variable. An example of that variable value is:
http://d.yimg.com/nl/movies/site/player ... autoPlay=1

This link plays OK in IE.

I dynamically create a simple redirect html page called BoxOffice Trailer.html based on the selected movie when I push the TRAILER button in my movie select scene:

<html>
<head>
<title>Movie Trailer</title>
<meta http-equiv="Refresh" content="0; URL=http://d.yimg.com/nl/movies/site/player.swf?vid=29147407&amp;autoPlay=1">
</head>

<body bgcolor="#FFFFFF" text="#000000">

</body>
</html>

The button press also loads an overlay with a WebLobby object and the label is:
791~600~http://192.168.2.10/Box Office/BoxOffice Trailer.html~90

The problem is that when the overlay opens the ML Client crashes. I suspect it is beause the trailer link opens a swf player that conflicts with the ML Client.

MLS3 = 3.75.229
ML3 = 3.00.152.4
WEbLobby = 3.5.0.0
IE = Version 8

Any suggestions on an alternative to WebLobby would be greatly appreciated.

I don't think there is solution. MainLobby is running the Flash 10 player while the movie trailer site is trying to load Flash player 11. The two must not like to co-exist. I cannot make it work here.

Thanx Dave,

I will have to wait till my Web clients are finished as I can see Web Clients becoming the norm as opposed to PC clients.

Thanx
