if you're using an flvplayback component make sure the skin is in the correct location.
The video does not have a skin on it. It just loads, plays and ends. I have an ActionScript listener attached so that when the video ends, it goes back to the main menu.
I hope it will be helpful to add in some info that I left out of the first post. I don't know how handy it will be, but here we go:
The presentation is coded in AS2. It was built before AS3 came out, and since all the projects we've done have been very similar, it's easier (and cheaper) to just swap out some files and graphics than fixing what ain't broken.
I'm using Flash CS3 on a Mac running 10.6.6, but I've also tried publishing it on a PC with Windows XP in CS3 as well.
The only place the .flv files don't work is in a web browser on a PC, regardless of whether it's embedded in an .html file or if opened by the browser. If I view the .swf files in Flash Viewer, the .flvs load right up, and they work when I view them directly in an .flv player as well.
videos don't just load. something must be loading it.
are you importing your video to a timeline in the authoring environment?
I'm importing it as a 'progressive download from server' deployment. I don't want to put it in the timeline because the videos are 2~5 mintes each, and I don't want them to de-synch.
I tried adding a skin to the video, but that didn't solve the problem; even after making sure it was located in the same folder and linked properly.
upload your files to a server and post a link to your embedding html.
My guess would be paths. Are you using relative or absolute paths?
Also, when you added a skin to the video, did the html page at least show the skin?
