if you're using a flash media server why are you using progressive download and how are you specifying that?
if you're not using fms, isLive isn't valid.
I am not using a flash media server, it is purely progressive download.
then isLive is not valid. from the adobe help docs:
Flash Player 8.
Flash Professional 8.
Property; a Boolean value that is
trueif the video stream is live. This property is effective only when streaming from a FMS or FVSS. The value of this property is ignored for an HTTP download.
If you set this property between loading new FLV files, it has no effect until the
contentPathparameter is set for the new FLV file.
Thanks for your assistance so far. Unfortuantley isLive is having some affects on my progressive download video. To be absolutely certain I created a new flash file with new flvplayback component. For the contentPath I set a link to my remote flv file, there is nothing special here it is sitting in a public directory on a dedicated server.
When isLive is false, I hit play while the video starts downloading but it won't play until the video has fully downloaded. When isLive is true, the video plays while downloading but the seek bar does not work. Both tests were using the ClearOverAll.swf skin. It is definitely progressive download because they are caching.
I think there is something wrong with the flash export compiler because I never had this issue on my older video player versions.
