Default Video problem, plays locally, not on server

Hi all

I've got a problem with playing back a .flv. I import a video using the import video function. Then I change the video URL to the url for the video on the server(ie http://www.wherever.com/movies/thevideo.flv

The weird thing is that it works when I test the movie out of flash or just running the swf but when I upload the swf and try play it from the web the video just doesn't appear...

Any ideas?

Thanks

it isn't clear if you are using embedded video or not.

if you use the NetConnection and NetStream objects you shouldn't have any problems with 'streaming' video from your server. This is better practice than embedded video.

I know... that's what I usually do, but the monkey I took the project over from has done it this way and now it needs to be live yesterday (typical) I'm not using embedded as in it's not in the timeline. the video was imported and then plays the .flv file.

Hey

Thanks but actually it turns out the problem wasn't actionscript related. The ISP who provides the company with internet have a proxy that caches files and the only flushes the files out every 2 hours or so. So I thought I was looking at the new files on the server and in fact I wasn't anyway it's solved now.
