Chances are there is something internal to the Flash file that is not working in its new environment. Based on your html code, there is no need for the AC...js file. When I try to view the file alone, outside of the html page, it still does not show anything. What kinds of things are going on with that file when it is first trying to start up?
Well, the original project is structured a bit differently from the norm. It imports the flv to a playback component, and uses an event listener to navigate to a new URL once the video is finished playing. But I don't know that there's a connection here which would cause the video not to even begin. I don't know if this will help, but FWIW, here's the code:
function myHomePage(eventObject:VideoEvent) :void
Like I said, locally, it all works flawlessly. Thanks for your help. - Mark

This is one of the things I hate about Flash video. It's not self-contained, per Quicktime & Windows Media; it requires a number of external files to play a video. So what types of things can cause a Flash file to change its operations when transfered from one environment to another?
I started over from scratch thinking maybe I missed something. Still the same - works locally, not when uploaded to server. Any suggestions?
Unfortunately (for me) I don't have alot of experience with video stuff, so I can't offer much in the way of telling you there's something off with the code. I would expect that if it works locally it should work on the server as well. The best I can recommend it triple checking the locations of the involved files.
If there's any way of adding an event listener to see if the flv actually starts to load, and any other status you can check, I'd try that as a temporary troubleshooting step.
If no one else picks up on this thread, try posting it anew with a summary of what've included here. I won't interupt its progress with a response.
