Hello there guys,

I'm wondering if it is possible to script a SWF file to load and play movie files (such as AVI, WMV, MPEG, etc.) from an external folder or directory. Think of it as a Youtube video player for offline use.

I ask this because I am in the process of creating an offline, wiki-style database that requires embedded, multimedia files. My thought is that the videos are located in a sub-directory within the main database directory, and the same SWF is used throughout the pages of the database, each instance used to load and play a different video file, EXACTLY like an offline version of Youtube.

Well, is this possible?
