Aside from displaying images, XML Flash Slideshow Plus can also display videos. Because videos have their own timeline, the slideshow will pause until the video is finished and then resume. You can play videos stored on your server, or as in this example, on video sharing sites such as blip.tv.
It’s amazing how a little bit of movement can bring your images to life. When you activate the Ken Burns effect in xml, the slideshow will scale or pan the images over time. You can choose from random, like this example or specific directions: zoom in only, zoom out, alternate, etc.
This demo also uses custom buttons that are loaded from external png files. Same buttons are included in the download along with the psd, so you can modify to your liking.
This demo demonstrates the vast amount of control the slideshow gives you over how each slides is displayed. Aside from captions, links and tooltips, you can set each slide to have different display and transition times, transition types, motion/easing type, and audio.
