Hi all.

In short, the question is:

Should I be able to use "Flash MX 2004 Pro" media components including a FLV(flash video)on the pocket PC?

At the current time, it doesn't seem to completely work. The component is visible but the video doesn't load. I am using the "Stand Alone Player for Pocket PC" (SAP) which converts the swf to an exe for Pocket PC use. I have also tried it using just a swf, neither seem to work.

Just for the record...I have already downloaded the Pocket PC development kits--they dont address media components, they just call urls for video--which opens the media player. I need to embed the video (its a full screen application) and can't have the windows media player opening.

Any help or insight would be greatly appreciated. THANKS!

what device are you testing on and what is the target CPU of your audience?

Dell Axim; recommended by Macromedia as best P-PC to run flash.

I should add...that this is stand alone PPC application. Users will use Pocket PC that I set up--thus, I will be controlling the environment.
