ActionScript 3 YouTube feed application

A few days ago I made a little application based on the new ActionScript 3 YouTube API and I thought I should share it with those who want to get started with this type of players. In the future I plan to make some more complex applications based on this API so I can sell them on ActiveDen.net

Photo Booth – Flash Webcam Image Capture

UPDATE: HTML5 Webcam Photobooth Web App

Two days ago I made a little Flash app that will allow anyone to take a picture with a webcam connected to a computer. Everything worked fine in AS3. It was only when I got to the PHP part of the project when I felt like I should ask for help. And I did, I asked a friend or mine (Mihai Bojin) who in a few minutes explained to me exactly what I needed to know in order to get this project working as it should (a big part of the PHP code is made by him).

The project is now open source and you can find the code and the source files underneath 😉

This open source project is release under the MIT license.

Odd or Even number in ActionScript

I was making a project for a client of mine where I had to make a list with two different colors for the items (like the iTunes list) so I started to think of a possible way to make this. It was clear enough I need to know the odd or the even number in order to do that. So I started to do some google search and I got over this blogpost by Keith Peters. I have to say, this is a very interesting way of thinking 😀

iseven = ((num & 1) == 0)

Makes sense when you look at binary numbers:

001 = 1
010 = 2
011 = 3
100 = 4
101 = 5

Each of the odd numbers has a 1 in the far right column. The even numbers have 0 there. Mask it with “& 1″ and you can see which it is.

So I made a for loop and used this code. It works exactly how it was intended to work!!
Thanks Keith Peters for your blogpost 😀

New flash forum

Last week I started a Romanian Flash forum with some friends and now I believe it’s ready to grow and get bigger because there are some Flash lovers here in Romania.
If you are from Romania or if you speak the language and you love Flash, please join us 😉

Kuler

When ever I need some new colors to start a project with or something like that, I open up the Kuler panel and search for some new colors that will fit my project.
