Streaming video header

I worked for like 6 hours today on the flash header for the OpenColony.com website today. It was intense. They wanted it to be an animated banner that streamed video clips with masking over top of them. The mask consisted of the words “Open Colony” in font made for the site. I ended up having to use two NetStreams and cross fade between them so there were no visible gaps during the load time. The problem with this is it had to be completely dynamic from files loaded from an XML. So all in all it was a dynamic streaming video player with multiple streams and a mask overlay. Wow… what a mouth full. I will be doing a tutorial on how I accomplished it soon since there was ABSOLUTELY no info for something like it online. I mean tons for one streaming video at a time, but not two…
