Can anyone tell me if it's possible to pseudo-live stream flash video files with a timed playlist? (i.e. a live video station where a specific clip needs to start at 6pm, and all clients are viewing the content at the same point in time, i.e. live)

is there built-in support for this using server side playlists? I've gone through the docs and can't seem to find enough info about this or if what I want to do can be done without too much hassle. I mean, I could create a client-side solution that polls the server for the time and an xml playlist but it would be a lot of work - I'm hoping flash server 3.5 has built in support for this. but I'm a newb when it comes to flash server :)

Thanks!
