line Style in flash 8

We all saw in those presentations that with flash 8 one has more control over line properties in the flash IDE than in MX 2004.
Since those presentations i tried to find the way to use this via Actionscript and tata…
After some try and error efforts i found that the lineStyle method has several new arguments. The first two are still unknown to me the third new parameter is for the cap style (i tried “round”,”none”, “square”) and the forth is for the joint of two lines (i found “bevel”! and “round”).
See this example here
Sure you need Flash 8 beta player installed to see the magic.

Anyone know more about those parameters?



could flash 8 solve flv problems?

It seems Flash 8 solves one of the biggest problems i had with locally loaded, progressive flv files.
The problem was that only one client could connect to the same flv at the same time.
It seems that it was a bug in the Flash Player 7.19. I tried it with Flash 8 beta – and it worked!
I used this standalone wrapper.
I would like to test it with a previous flash 7 (7.14) standalone player but couldn`t find a link to it.
I know their is this macromedia archive for old players but it only archives browser plugins.

But it all looks quite promising.
