1. as2 or as3?
2. there's an flv or f4v in the same directory with your published swf that you want to play?
im working with as3 and yes i have flv in the same directory
add an flvplayback component to your library.
you can then use:
var flv:FLVPlayback=new FLVPlayback();
ive tried your code but its not working as i want
when i mouse over the button the video clip shows but it starts flashing
its flashing the image button and the video clip
the code i suggested wouldn't cause that to happen. you're doing something else, in addition to (like advancing the playhead) or, instead of, the code i suggested.
