I am just getting my feet with Macromedia MX tools and was trying a few things out with Flash MX and FlashCom.

I was running through a tutorial from the Macromedia website (how to setup a chatroom with AV's )

I followed all the steps and uploaded it but notice that it never connects.

Is there something I'm missing? I looked at a couple of other codes and they had some Action-scripting in there.

Need help. Thanks

Hey - most likely it's with your connection string. I haven't done that tutorial, but I'm guessing that it uses the simple-connect? If so, in the line where it asks you to add the connection string in the component parameters, it probably said something like:

rtmp:/my_video_app

If you upload to a server, it won't work because that connection is assuming the flash comm. server is on the same machine. It fcs is running on your home machine, simply change it to:

rtmp://myhomeip/my_video_app

note that there are 2 slashes after the rtmp: in the second string.

That should do it!
