what's the url of the swf that plays the flv and what needs to be done to see the problem?
thanks for your reply, unfortunately I am not able to share the contents to protect privacy of the client's contents.
However I have established that it is something to do with the way the latest update of the player handles the FLV file.
In fact it also seems linked to the speed of the connection, when on a fast line I have actually observed the everything working fine.
The only issue is the total inconsistency of the behaviour: it works fine on one load, and may not work on the next loading attempt.
I can also add that the video is playing using the FLVPlayback component.
Any advice of the direction to look into would be a huge help.
i can't help without that link.

After exausting tests I came to the conclusion that the FLV gets stuck in BUFFERING state and never enter play state...
I re-highlight that it works perfectly using older plug-in.
In practice if this was a project created and working and approved 2 years ago... it would have stopped working with the player update!
It is something to do with the way the FLVPlayback component enters the playing state.
And to add the the confusion in some loads I have randomly seen it working fine!!!
May seen linked to the version in cache and speed of the connection.
Any help kindly on where to look for a solution?
It seems that on the first load when clearing cache it works fine.
However on a second load is gets stuck in buffering.
Can anyone kindly advise how to make flash ignore existig cache FLV file and reload it?
Many thanks again for any support.
For anyone who may be interested this is the last element found:
The issue disappears if straming with a fast connection and reappears if using a slow connection.
