Hi friends, sorry if this is in the wrong forum.

What I want is to put a linked video inside of a SWF file.

On my web server these three files will exist:

- index.html
- gate.swf
- ratherbigvideo.avi

This is what will be in index.html:

<embed src="gate.swf?usefil=ratherbigvideo.avi"></embed>

When you enter the web page the video (.avi) will start playing through the flash file (.swf).

And if I were to change the querystring sent to the flash file to another video file, that one would play instead, regardless of file extension (and codec used).

Now I ask you: Is this possible to do?

If you want to have an external video being streamed to a swf, you need to make it a .flv file(Flash Video)

There are lots of tutorials if you google flash flv's.

for example this video to flash converter converts any video format file to swf or flv. works perfectly for me.
