Were the videos encoded for progressive playback? That might solve some of your issues.
thank-you for your reply chris.
i'll try encoding the videos to progressive and see if that does the trick.
let you know.
nope, it's still the same after encoding all to progressive. tried both FLV and F4V formats
this is very frustrating... what could it be?
Drat! You might try looking through the Flash Builder forums to see if they might have a video playback tips. There might some property that Flash Catalyst is not exposing or something in the app itself that needs to be changed.
If you have Flash Professional, you could try creating a simple FLV player using it and see what the performance is like from the server.
Not sure if that is a really great answer that's a lot of extra work and could result in possibly much more frustration.
I have tried everything to get the video to play they make it look real easy on the tutorial but there is definatly a bug in
the application everything else works great though.
