is your flv the contentPath of an flvplayback component? if yes, is the component's instance name flv?
The instance is FLVPlayback and I named it montage - the content path is montage2.flv. Should it be something like

unless you want to encode a sophisticated preloader that detects the user's download rate and then determines when to start playing the flv so it just completes loading as the end of it plays, you can just preload about 10 seconds of the flv using:
var playTO:Number=setTimeout(10000,playF); // set the preload duration here
It seems like everyone would want the sophisticated preloader - it should just come with the component! wouldn't it be the best thing when you are going to place a small video on your site?
not really but, it doesn't matter what you or i think about what should be built-into the flvplayback componenet. it is what it is and nothing you (or i) say will make any difference.
you could search for another component that does what you want but i doubt it exists. you could create one yourself but that might be beyond your current capabilities and time-constraints. or, you could hire someone to create it for you but i'm not sure that's worthwhile either.
I guess what I meant is everyone would want their videos to run smoothly - and I want to do everything that I can to make that happen. I am definitely going to try the script that you gave me. Do you know anthing about the buffer time in the video component? If I change that time it does not seem to do anthing.
