    Default problem with tutorial:Creating a dynamic playlist forstreaming flash video

    hi, anyone tried the tutorial: creating a dynamic playlist for streaming flash
    video?

    i follow the instruction exactly as stated in the tutorial and test the fla
    file, it worked perfectly well when i open the swf using the macromedia flash
    8. Everything look fine. Nothing is changed except the url is changed to
    "rtmp://localhost/videosource" in the xml file.

    after i publish the file using the setting: access network only, i try to open
    the swf and html file from the folder, the thumbnail did not appear and there
    is no way i can click on any videos. What i see is only the list, and there is
    no response from the flash media server 2. All the files is in the same folder.
    Anyone please help with this problem???? thanks

    Do you know if the XML file is actually being read? If not create a
    TextField in the movie for tracing and debug.

    Hi,
    I am also encountering the same problem. I can see the list box being
    populated with thumbnails but the Video fail to start streaming.
    "Error : command msg sent before client connection has been accepted." keeps
    appearing in the log.

    Your original problem stated it worked but not when playing outside the
    Flash authoring environment by simply loading the swf from the hard drive.

    The Flash authoring environment is a trusted environment and so you really
    need to test in the actual deployment mode which loading an swf from the
    hard drive is not a valid deployment unless an installed Flash player is
    available outside the web browser which you would have as you have the
    authoring tool and your users will not.

    Use a browser with [url]http://yourdomain.com/yourmovie.html[/url] to do final
    debugging.

    In this regard you may need to debug the movie while running in real time
    mode in a web browser with http:// A technique to trace I suggested is to
    create a temporary TextField perhaps named out_txt and send trace message to
    it such as out_txt.text += "My Trace Expression".

    I'm having the same problem. It appears that the contentPath variable isn't
    being passed to the FLVPlayback component when it's created. Anyone have any
    ideas? The code looks like this...

    listListener.change = function( evtobj ) {
    var nav = list.dataProvider[list.selectedIndex];
    var reset = true;
    for ( var i = 0; i < nav.childNodes.length; i++ ) {
    var stream = nav.childNodes<i>;
    if ( stream.nodeName == "stream" ) {
    attachMovie("FLVPlayback", "my_FLVPlybk", 10)
    my_FLVPlybk.skin = "SteelExternalAll.swf";
    my_FLVPlybk.clear();
    my_FLVPlybk._firstStreamShown = true;
    my_FLVPlybk.contentPath = nav.attributes.url + "/_definst_/" +
    stream.attributes.name+".flv";
    my_FLVPlybk.autoSize = true;
    trace(my_FLVPlybk.contentPath);
    reset = false;
    }
    }
    }

    Hi,

    I guess the problem could be in the main.asc file placed in the
    appliactions\app_name folder. Try replacing the main.asc file with the one at
    the following location of your Flash8 installation.

    c:\Program Files\Macromedia\Flash 8\Samples and
    Tutorials\Samples\Components\FLVPlayback\

    This worked out for me.

    Regards,

    wont play. Ive tried to replace the main.asc without success.

    Since it has been a while someone posted I hope some of you have an answer to
    this problem.

    Best regards

    Hi,

    I have the same problem.

    Changed the main.asc
    Running through localhost not "Test Video" in Flash 8

    Thumbnails appear, but stream doesnt play.

    If you wait for around 5 mins then the stream plays, looks like its maybe
    progressive downloading.

    Pitty the author wouldnt get on and answer the question, seems everyone has
    the same problem.
