Default Video for Flash 6 as opposed to 8

I have a .MOV file that I've converted to an .FLV using the Macromedia Flash 8 Video Encoder. I am happy with this and it works great for importing into a Flash 8 file.

Now, I want to make a Flash 6 version of this movie as well. How do I go about doing this as I see nothing in the Video Encoder that caters to Flash 6? I have so many questions about this like if I can use the Media Controller components to link to the Flash 8 .FLV file and if this will still work through a Flash 6 file?

Bottom line is I just need to create a Flash 6 version of my intro movie. Thanks.

Howdy...

The easiest way I can think of is to create an SWF out of that MOV file and use loadMovie() function instead of the Media Controller component to display the SWF file into it...

Good lookin out. That sounds like a solid idea, thanks!

Is there anyway to create a .swf file out of an .flv file? Thanks.

Um... I have not tried it, but here is what you might be able to do...

Create a new FLA...
Import the FLV into the timeline...
Export the SWF out of it...

Let me know...
