Default making an .flv appear paused when loaded

hi all,
i have built a .flv video player and its working just fine but when it loads videos they start off stopped with a play button overlay so it has to be user initiated to start. Only problem is when they are paused at the beginning of the stream they are invisible. I have tried several things to make the video appear at the beginning but nothing works.

i have tried explicitally setting the visible and alpha props. they dont do anythign (the vid is already visible and alpha = 1 according to traces)

i have tried seek(0.1) to seek ahead a bit - this doesn't work at all.
tried playing and pausing the stream but that no workey either.

any ideas?
mcm

Default

forget it. I had a seek method built. that was overriding stream.seek - it takes a percentage in integer val instead of decimal. so i was passing 0.1 percent instead of 1% - tis fixed now.
thanks me.
