    Can't get Progressive FLV's to playback in flash movie

    FlashTapper Level 1

      Developing a flash resource which runs FLV files from within it as pro

      gressive. It works ok on my local testing computer/network server. But when I put it online it does not play.


      I opened up the components panel for each FLV and noticed they were absolutely linked to my network drive (obviously when online this linking will now work). So i changed all the linking to be relative and some warning windows did come up and say i was breaking the link but i ignored them because i don't care about how it runs locally...i want this resource to work online!


      But now the FLVs will not playback locally or online! I need some help....something that it might also be is I am uploading this resource to an LMS called Janisons (perhaps they are not FLV through flash playback - friendly).


      Is there any particular path of troubleshooting I could go along? Because I have just about tried everything i know!


      Thanks in advance.


      UPDATE: I changed back one of the FLVs parameters to link to local drive in the component parameters - and as expected, it runs fine locally but when previewd in chrome (which might i add has some great debugging features that you could only dream of finding in IE) i get the following message:



      SecurityError: Error #2148: SWF file http://my.tafe.qld.gov.au/GLC/GLC_Food_Hospitality/GLC_SITHFAB009A_TQC_A/Scenario/barMenu.swf cannot access local resource G:\Resource Development\RD\2009-2010\ITG 4\Food&Bev\RSA\Online\Resources\Scenario\Scenario4_Staff_Responsibility\ExpensiveArvo2.flv.
