If you use the FLVPlayback component then you also need to upload the skin SWF that you selected in the component.
Did that also.
Post the URL...
I'm having the exact same issue? Anyone have any troubleshooting tips?
You have to hover your mouse about 350 pixels down the page to make the timeline appear (autohide is on).
you have a cross-domain security issue:*** Security Sandbox Violation ***Connection

ok, i changed the source in Flash to be the URL of what the m4v's URL will be, re-uploaded the html and swf files and it works. Is there a better way to handle this kind of thing? Something where it's all just built into the swf file, perhaps??
no, you would usually load or stream large assets like video. you just have to be careful when you load/stream assets from one domain to another. (that can be done, but you need a policy file on the domain that hosts the loaded/streamed file that oks the loading domain to load assets from it.
Thanks, all. Sorry for the delay. I've moved the item from our development site to the outside site. Within the same folder is the swf file, the player skin file, the f4v file, the fla file, the html.
I'm so new to this, I'd appreciate some help.
It's finding the skin fine, but...
In the Component Inspector, the path to your video shows as:
C:\Documents and Settings\Janetb\Desktop\Adobe CS4\New Folder\wnc.f4v
So that's not going to work once the file is on the server. Change that path to just 'wnc.f4v', republish the SWF, put JUST THE NEW SWF back in the live directory and I think you'll be OK.
Thanks so much. I understand what you're saying, but when I look in the html file, it just shows a local path, and when Iook in the publishing wizard, it's just showing wnc.fileextension - nothing beyond the local folder. Where/how does this get hardcoded and how can I change it?
You do this inside the Flash authoring tool..
-- select the FLVPlayback component
-- Open the Component Inspector (Window> Component Inspector)
-- Change the path in the line 'source'
-- save and republish the SWF
Thanks so much! That was it. Is this just for the playback component or will I need to check paths on every object?
Pathing problems like this can happen anytime you have to load external content (SWF, flv, etc...) But they're most common for beginners in the components, and particularly with FLVPlayback, which is only aware of the location you first loaded the video from. Ideally the component could be a little bit smarter, but it has no way of knowing where your final FLV is going to be. So that information is for you to provide.
Gotcha, Thanks for taking the time to help out a beginner. Appreciate it.
