          Does it load the FLV, but not play it? Is that the problem you are having?


          If so, its because you are telling it to play before it has anything.  Loading an FLV is an asynchronous process, and other code will execute while it happens.


          The best method for this is to set the autoPlay to true.


          player.autoPlay = true;


          If it isn't loading the FLV at all - put a trace in the mouse handler to make sure that the function is firing.


               trace("Should be loading the video");
               player.contentPath = "name.flv";


          And test it in Flash.  If the click handler is firing, then the trace will appear in the output panel.  If it is, and the FLV isn't loading, check that the path is correct. (You will see an error in the output panel as well if the FLV doesn't load)

            Thank you very much


            I solved itby adding the name of the movie that will run in global variable

            and on (release) i set it's value that i have read from the XML file

            and on the media playback load event

            player.contentPath = _global.myVar;

            and it's work


            Thank you very much for your reply
