So I have a Quicktime movie, hosted at a URL that I would like to play inside a swf.
I wanted to just link the URL and have the movie play inside my SWF inside a player that I can skin.

I tried importing the .mov from the URL via the import selection in flash but it won't work.
Do I need to get a copy of the .mov and then change it in to a FLV?
I am assuming I wouldn't need to do that.

Is there a good tutorial or can some one point me in a right direction?

Flash can only dynamically load video files in FLV or SWF format... You do need to convert the MOV to FLV so that you can load it into the Flash dynamically...

Nope... You cannot load MOV directly into Flash...

Oh, it's CyanBlue not Cyan...

You can always cheat it though!

Other division, modal window, iframe, popup... Cleverly positioned over the Flash movie, and you're in business...

try this tool--Flash Video MX Pro (http://www.video-to-flash.com),it converts AVI to SWF/FLV, DVD to SWF/FLV, MOV to SWF/FLV, WMV to SWF/FLV, MP4 to SWF/FLV, 3GP to SWF/FLV, MPEG to SWF/FLV, etc.

this guide maybe useful:
