    Can't get video streaming of flv working

    I have an flv I created from an avi using the Flash CS3 Video Encoder. I converted it to "Flash 7 - Custom Settings" because I want the video to work in Flash 7, so I'm publishing for Flash 7.

    So I have a video called Video1.flv and I want to simply have the video play in an swf file.

    So I open my fla, and select File->Import->Import Video... I select the file, but I want to use a relative path, so I simply place "Video1.flv" because it will be in the same path as the swf. I then selected "Progressive download from a web server" because there is no special software for streaming on this server. Now I publish for Flash 7, upload the swf and flv into the same folder.. and nothing happens. It's set to auto play but it just sits at the start of the video with the word "streaming" but nothing happens. Nothing is being streamed.

    Here are the files:

    http://members.iinet.net.au/~freeaxs/flash/Video1.swf
    http://members.iinet.net.au/~freeaxs/flash/Video2.swf
    http://members.iinet.net.au/~freeaxs/flash/Video1.flv
    http://members.iinet.net.au/~freeaxs...FlashVideo.zip

    I also tried another way following the guide from here but that didn't work either. That is saved as Video2.swf and Video1.swf is using the MediaPlayback component. The fla's are in the zip file.

    Please help I am desparate to get this working, and I'm sure this is supposed to be something simple!

    Incidently I also tried using an absolute path and it still won't stream.

    Am I doing something wrong?

    Nevermind I got this working, very strange but when I publish the same fla in Flash 8 it works. Don't ask me why!
