this seams to be a bug of some sort. I have the same problem.
I want to play a flv inside an .sw in Adobe Air. Result: Connection Error!
Hopefulle there is someone out there to help us!
Thank you for your reply Claus.
I also think there's some sort of bug, but may I ask you where did you get the connection error message? Cause in my case i just don't get any feedback when I try to play the flv file. Is there any console or log file I can check?
what I do is:
1. create a file using Captivate
2. i place a .flv video in this file
3. save the file as .swf
4. then i go to dreamweaver and put the swf on a html page.
when viewed in a browser, everything runs fine.
when i pack this page into an air application (in dreamweaver) the video does not appear,
instead I get this "Connection Error"
I do not know a console or log file.
However, I learned that there is a .xml file located in the same AIR folder that you publish in.
In this .xml file there is a setting :transparency. in order to playt a .flv file this must not be be "transparent"!
(i read this somewhere in the net)
hope that helps
I will talk to a professional programmer, if I have any news, i will let you know
