I am using the example procedures as shown in the Adobe Book,
Flash CS3 Professional Video Studio Techniques. (Chap 5
specifically). I want to place a Flash movie inside of an HTML
page. I created my Flash Video (Action Script 2.0) both ways (FLV
Player with an authortime assigned FLV & FLV player with an
HTML-assigned FLV) as recommended in the book both to learn and see
how they function. When I load them stand alone in my browser,
(Firefox) they work fine. When I place the code inside my full HTML
page I can get the video to place and play with either but the
Skins fail to show up. I see a blank bar with the background and no
control skin. I did have to do a little work to get the paths
correct for the video but once that was working I expected the
skins to be there but they are gone.
**Update** I actually got it to work when using FLV player
with an HTML-assigned FLV (bad path) but FLV Player with an
authortime assigned FLV still does not work nor make sense since
the Skin should be embedded inside swf file correct?
Answered my own question. In using FLV Player with an
authortime assigned FLV the skin.swf needs to be at the same
directory level as the calling HTML.
