View Full Version : FLV playback problem

07-23-2007, 07:03 PM
I'm working on intergrationg a flv video into an existing SWF on our website. I've got everything working locally (using publish preview); and all of my links in my ActionScript refer to files already on our web server.

The problem is that whenever I upload the swf file to the server, the flv doesnt load. Is this something with security? My code is:

on (release){
this.vid.loadMovie("http://www.stealthhydroponics.com/images/splash_vid.swf"); }

any help?

I just had a look at http://www.stealthhydroponics.com/images/splash_vid.swf ... got nothing but a blank white screen. So I guess the problem is in this SWF.

i had the same issue a few weeks ago and the way if fixed it was by logging on to my server control panel and adding a MIME type for flv.

Type ".flv" as the associated extension and "video/x-flv" as the content type.

hope this helps.

the swf loads for meon all of the office computers.

Is there a trick to loading a flvplayer into another movie clip?

Any other ideas yet? I'm close to my deadline and still clueless....

All Ican see on the link now is the SWF placeholder.

Itried looking at your HTML source code... It's blocked! I'd recommend having a chat with whoever is managing the server/security for this site. It could be the security that's cocking things up for you here.

Another alternative - don't use the video component. Write your own code for the FLV playback. It's easier to do in ActionScript than MP3 players!
