    Initial appearance of FLVPlayback


      I'm using FLVPlayback to display a flv in a swf embedded in html. Autoplay = false, wmode = transparent / windowless.


      I've got it working (not yet set up the way I'd like, but that's another issue), but the way the flv displays when the page loads is a problem. The controls skin is clearly visible, but the movie frame displays as a white box on a white page, barely visible except for a faint outline.


      I guess the white screen simply represents the first frame of the flv. Ideally I'd like to see either a black box or the first frame with meaningful content. Is there any way (say with ActionScript) to advance and stop the flv to a particular frame? Or is there some other way to not see a white box here?


      See attached screen grab detail. If it helps, here's my html.


      <script language="javascript">
          if (AC_FL_RunContent == 0) {
              alert("This page requires AC_RunActiveContent.js.");
          } else {
                  'codebase', 'http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,0,0',
                  'width', '320',
                  'height', '280',
                  'src', '../flash/player',
                  'quality', 'high',
                  'pluginspage', 'http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer',
                  'align', 'middle',
                  'play', 'true',
                  'loop', 'true',
                  'scale', 'showall',
                  'wmode', 'transparent',
                  'devicefont', 'false',
                  'id', '../flash/player',
                  'name', 'player',
                  'menu', 'true',
                  'allowFullScreen', 'false',
                  'movie', 'player',
                  'salign', ''
                  ); //end AC code
          <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,0,0" width="320" height="280" id="player" align="middle">

          <param name="allowFullScreen" value="false" />
          <param name="movie" value="../flash/player.swf" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="wmode" value="transparent" />    <embed src="../flash/player.swf" quality="high" wmode="transparent" width="320" height="280" name="player" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" allowFullScreen="false" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />

          no ss is attached and it may be helpful because i'm not sure what you're describing.


          you can start and stop you flv so, if the flv has plain white content at its start and you want to move past that you can.  can you edit the flv to remove that white at the start?
