First time I decided to play with a flash movie using the FLVComponent in Macromedia Flash 8 Pro...
It is very simple to first encode the .wmv to .flv and then setup the component to target the .flv ... I tested and exported the flash and it works great. But once I upload the .html and .swf files with the correct code, IT WILL NOT PLAY. Instead I get the blank flash spaceholder. The .html plays fine locally...

If I create a generic .SWF file (Not using the FLVComponent), it will work fine!

I am also using the code that macromedia had given me...

Code: [ Select ]

I'd check with your web host and ask them to add the flv mimetype on the server. It sounds like the host doesn't know how to ask your computer to deal with the file. Also make sure your path to the movie is relative to the page that holds the player and not to the player itself.

I agree checking the mime type is essential, but also make sure your Flash Player plugins are updated to Flash Player 9 or higher. I had this same problem and although it played fine locally had the same problem on the web. Turned out my Flash Player was an unsupported version.
