I can’t see the player buttons for my movies!

Here is what I am doing:
I Drag the flv file (converted wmv movie with flash 8 video encoder) into flash 8, go through the wizard selecting a player (steel all external), it makes the file...but when I play it all I see is the movie no controls? HOWEVER when I do this with one of the movie files that is lower res it works fine.
Is this a bug or am I missing something??
