You can contact me through my website, which i believe is linked on my profile.

I've been playing around with the SSP module this week and I've hit a few head-scratching points for including video. I may end up having to do it as a separate module for now and nix the option of mixing images and video.

You need to open the fla containing the SlideshowPro component and do the following
1. Highlight the SlideshowPro instance on the stage and in the component inspector panel, delete the images.xml value under the XML File Path attribute so it is blank.
2. With the SlideshowPro instance on the stage still selected give it the following name, my_ssp in the Property Inspector Panel)
3. Now create a new layer - call it actions - paste the following code into the Actionscript Editor

my_ssp.xmlFilePath = ImagesPath;

4. Save the changes and export the swf out.
5. Log into the Silverstripe Admin panel and chose the SlideShowPro page you have created and in the SWF tab upload the swf you have just exported, set your width and height, and chose Transparent for the background opacity value. Ignore the XMLFilePath instructions above the swf upload section as this is now legacy.
6. Upload your photos in the Photos Tab - and you should be good to go!

Any problems,, give me a shout.

Hi No Art, sorry can't attach. I have noticed there is a problem now on the latest build of SS 2.3.3 and the latest updates to DataObjectManager/ImageGallery from Uncle Cheese, seem the XML feed has become corrupted and other things like the thumbnail size slider is banjaxed :o( Great! Maybe this is why? Any ideas Uncle Cheese?

Still works with 2.3.2 though. Just name the SSP component my_ssp and create an actions layer in the timeline and on the first frame put the following script

my_ssp.xmlFilePath = ImagesPath;

(Make sure your xmlFilePath value in the component Inspector is blank!)

Hi UncleCheese. Just discovered this thread. You're a really busy man, working on all these awesome modules. Kudos!
I know, the youtube video is quite dated, but have you been able to solve the safari issue? I might help you with that one, because I just recently developed a Flex/Flash site with SilverStripe as backend and also had some problems with safari.. maybe even the same you were facing.
