I wanted to remove the retrieving text that appears along with the retrieving bar when loading a video. I set the value of the video.retrievingBar.visible as false and now the bar does not appear. I tried to set the value of the letters to #00FFFFFF in hope that it could interpret the value with alpha value, but didn't work. Does anyone know a way to remove the this text? I load my video in a <video /> in my xml.
