Unhappy Load External FLV + PHP

Ok dilemma,

I'm dynamically loading tutorial data stored in a database table. Part of the data is a link to an FLV video file.

I was thinking that I could have 1 swf universal player for all the videos like myPlayer.swf and I could pass the video location to the swf file using a PARAM and then load the video and play it in the swf file with added video controls BUT I HAVE NO CLUE. Any help that anyone could give me regarding this would be great.

Any ideas if this is possible anyone? Or am I barking up a complicated tree?

you can use FLVPlayback component provided by Flash 8 and above.

Ok so I just add the FLV playback component (named myPlayback) to the stage and then save the movie as say myPlayer.swf but then how do I pass the movie name variable?

<PARAM NAME="myPlayback" VALUE="contentPath=videos/myVideo.flv">
Is this the kind of thing that you mean or am I way off?
