Hi, first post here.
I'm working on a website that has many movie clips within movie clips, and I'm trying to import a FLV into one of these movie clips.
I followed the instructions outlined in the book "Macromedia Flash 8 Advanced", which are pretty much the same as in Flash's help:
• File > Import > Import Video
• Select video to convert and import
• Select "Progressive download"
• Adjust video encoding, select skin
Then the player skin appears on the stage of my flash document. This all seems to work fine, but when I publish my document to view the video, neither the player nor the video appear.
I had placed the video player in an empty movie clip. Just to see if it was working at all, I placed the player on the main stage starting from frame 1. Still nothing.
I then created a flash file with nothing on it except for the player, and that worked.
Is there a reason why the player wouldn't show up in a document with other movie clips? Is it possible to load a video into a flash website with multiple layers of MC's? Does anything in the Flash books actually work? ;)
