Sounds like a bad flv file. If you had Flash MX 04 maybe it would be a compatibility problem, but Flash 8 supports sorenson squeeze and On2 VP6 codec. There are no other compression codecs that I can think of, so there is no reason that they shouldn't play in your swf.
You can also post the bad flv so we can test them and see if it is just a problem you are having.
Thanks for your answer.
If you would like to test such a small file (800k) that doesn't work for me,
I have put this one temporarly on my server www.gopico.net/octopus.flv
If I run it with a small utility program like FLVplayer, it plays.
But in Macromedia Flash, no result , just a blank screen
Well, I downloaded your flv file, placed it into Flash 8, then published the file. Everything worked fine for me with one odd exception, there is no small scrubber arrow under the progress bar. I have no idea why this isn't working for you. Can you see the resulting test page:
If not then you need to update your Flash Player. Otherwise I am stumped.
Thanks Nickels55 !
I guess that is good news. I will only have to reinstall my Flash 8 system.
I have The Flash 8 system mixed with the Flash 9 player, but it should be backwards compatible.
