We have been trying to get this done for hours and have finally given up for now.

We would appreciate any advice you can give.
Thanks,
Richard

from reading looks like you need to embed Apple's quicktime player.

I got this code from Apple's website
Code: [ Select ]
<OBJECT

CLASSID="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B"

    CODEBASE="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab"

    WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="256" >



    <PARAM NAME="src" VALUE="My.mp4" >

    <PARAM NAME="autoplay" VALUE="true" >



<EMBED SRC="QTMimeType.pntg" TYPE="image/x-macpaint"

PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download"

    QTSRC="My.mp4" WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="256"

    AUTOPLAY="true" >

</EMBED>



</OBJECT>
  1. <OBJECT
  2. CLASSID="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B"
  3.     CODEBASE="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab"
  4.     WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="256" >
  5.     <PARAM NAME="src" VALUE="My.mp4" >
  6.     <PARAM NAME="autoplay" VALUE="true" >
  7. <EMBED SRC="QTMimeType.pntg" TYPE="image/x-macpaint"
  8. PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download"
  9.     QTSRC="My.mp4" WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="256"
  10.     AUTOPLAY="true" >
  11. </EMBED>
  12. </OBJECT>


It came from a link for Quicktime 6 and they say the information is obsolete so you might want to browse around the Apple site if that doesn't work.

Here:

That looks a bit more current.

As long as you target the Flash 9 player and use Actionscript 3 you can stream non flv files through the netConnection and display them with the video player component.

You can use .mov, .mp4, in addition to .flv but the .mov and .mp4 files MUST be compressed using the H.264 codec or they won't work in flash.
