    Importing video into flash

    Hi all,

    I seem to be having a few problems importing videos into flash, I looked through the Flash 8 pro help files and it told me I could import .mpgs,.wmvs with certain software installed but I don't seem to be able to. Help files tell me to go to File > import > Import video. The problem is when i go to File > import I only see Open external library, which don't seem to work to import videos.

    Hope someone can help.

    Do you have a document open when you do this ?

    Trying Encoding to FLV First

    Rather than using Import >> etc (which SHOULD get you to the same place, but since that is giving you problems,) first try encoding the movie to an .flv.

    (Using the Flash 8 Video Encoder application window.)

    Then upload it.

    Then create a new .swf, add the FLVPlayback component and then using the properties panel for the component, reference the location of the .flv.
