Using preset skins

After you encode an FLV file, you can import it into Flash and use a preset skin to allow you and your viewers to control the finished product. Flash's preset skins consist of a rounded corner rectangle for a background panel and any of a number of different buttons. The design for these default skins is the same inside each type; only the kind and number of buttons changes. There are two types of preset skins: skins that show up over the top of your video and skins that show up under your video. Choose the one with the buttons you need. There are options for basics like play/pause and mute, as well as more advanced buttons to enable full screen mode and closed captions. Color can also be affected.
