Honeymoon Slideshow with Closed Captioning

It is just a boring honeymoon photo slideshow I prepared for the customer as part of the wedding packaging. To optimize my workflow, I asked for 60 photos from the client and have them write a subtitle text file. I loaded it in excel to export to the proper subtitle format for Flash and Encore DVD.

I also wrote this Flash Movie Player .swf that will read from the URL the client's name (id=CindyAndrew). Then pulled from an XML file that I generated in Excel with the same name (CindyAndrew.xml).

Now for another customer, I just need to replace the PSD files in photoshop. Export the .f4v file in Premiere to the name of the client (e.g. CindyAndrew.f4v). Upload the .xml file content from Excel. Boom.. No need to touch any more HTML.

The logo is also an overlay in Flash. It can be turned off by appending &logo=0 to the end of URL
