I'm using Flash Catalyst CS5 and the Vista OS on my PC. When I create a Flash Catalyst application that uses any kind of flv or f4v the videos will play just fine in the run local version.
Unfortunately, when I try to test the click on the main.html page in the deploy-to-web version I get the video players, and the other interactivity of the application but no videos show up in the player. I've tried this on two different computers using both Dreamweaver and a generic HTML editor, but I still can't get the videos to play in the web version.
Just out of curiosity, does the deploy-to-web version need to run on a server that has capabilities such as php or some other 'helper programs' to play the videos?
Please help me with this.
Are you loading the videos to your server along with the data and program files?
You don't need PHP to run them.
Are you testing your site through a web server or through a local connection? I've had trouble getting video to work viewing a deploy-to-web site through a file:/// address. Try either uploading the site to a web server, using WAMP,MAMP or LAMP, or export to offine to test if it's working.
Hope it helps.
