    browser wont play my flv ... but flash player will

    Ok I just need take a deep breath.

    I'm making a little button that pops up a window with another movie (lets call this the player movie).

    Here is the script on the button:


    onClipEvent (enterFrame) {
    if (this.hitTest(_root._xmouse, _root._ymouse, true)) {
    } else {

    on (release) {
    getURL("javascript:spawnWindow('movies/laquinta.html','Player','toolbar=no,location=no,st atus=yes,menubar=no,scrollbars=no,resizable=no,wid th=320,height=350');");

    The player movie is just a flv player with a skinned controller.
    So ... when I test the player movie from flash everything works fine, but when i open everthing from my browser (both on my server and my harddrvie) it cant find the flv file.

    Does anyone know whats going on.
    Is it my script at all?

    Here is the link to the player movie that dosent work:

    the swf on the desktop plays the movie fine
    the swf on the server does not play the movie

    please guys i could really use some help with this
    if im in the wrong forum then please point me to the right one

    I checked and double checked the paths and its all good
    everthing is on the base level so in my media display component it just says laquinta.flv. Which is the name of the file.

    In my player movie I have a media display and a media controller.



    _root.holder.associateController(_root.controller) ;

    This is on the first frame.

    And thats pretty much it.
    It plays fine in just the flash player.
    But anytime I play it in the browser it poops on me.

    I have the latest flash plugins installed for all browsers.
    I checked my Preview settings. Every thing seems fine.

    These are the links to my files:

    when i open the html file from my desktop
    it still dosent play
    it only plays in the flash player

    if it were the server then shouldnt it play on my desktop?
    anytime i open it in a browser
    desktop or server it dosent work

    i used sorenson squeeze to compress the movie to flv

    i made a new flv through flash
    and again its the same story

    plays in the flash player
    and wont play in the brower

    please anyone i really need help with this
    im going on day to of trying to fix this and i dont know what else to do
