Is it really this hard or am I missing something?

I need to be able to stream flv videos using the Flash Communication Server. I already know how to use the server to stream videos.

My problem is two fold:

1. Auto-resize the video once it is opened as our videos could be different size. We need to be able to detect the size and resize "on the fly".

2. Attach a Media Controller so that our users can play-stop-seek. - or create a custom one using actionscript.

We have completed the following task using the "progressive download" but can't get it to work streaming with the Communication Server.

ganalon,

since i can't see your code, i can't tell you what you're doing wrong, but i can point you in the direction of a very good open source FLV player designed for streaming FLVs using FlashCom:

The downloadable zip file comes with full source code and documentation.

Best of luck :)
