I need a custom built flash video player with the following features: On startup, player downloads an XML file from the server that describes what it needs to play. Xml file can contain commands for both videos to play back, images to show and transitions to perform between them. Player has to then play the video/images/transitions until the end of the file, at which point it downloads another script file and continues. It also must have some mechanism to be controlled by the server. My preference is for it to open a socket and accept control connections, but that's flexible. I expect this is a good day or two for a competent ActionScript programmer. I'd prefer somebody that's immediately available and has Skype so we can work out the exact details of the mechanisms.
