I have a baffling problem with flv playback. At my job we have a serve strictly for flv videos. We have dozens of videos on it. They all work fine. But there are 3 videos that flash refuses to even begin to load into the player only until after a minute or so has passed by. Once it actually tries to load the video it loads like any other video.
I have tried encoding it to low quality. I have moved it to like 3 different servers. They do the same on every server. It also does the same within the flash authoring environment. When I preview the flash file it is blank for abotu a minute and then the player loads and begins to load my video. I also made sure the videos didn't have blank space at their beginning.
My flash set up is simple. One frame with an flv player component dumped in, targetting the .flv file.
I have done this countless times and never had this problem. I have even done videos AFTER these 3 videos and it doesn't do this!! I have redone the video set up like 3 times and nothing. What could this be?? Could anyone help me?? I am running out of options and we need to get this done. If anyone could help I'd really appreciate it.
