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? ;)

dont know if this is the answer but you need to have the video player skin you have chosen in the library of the movie. Have you got it there?
