I have just installed NN6.2, for development testing purposes, and have also installed the latest flash player and plugin for netscape ver 6.2 however, netscape still is not playing the movie.  The browser allocates the correct area for the movie, however (starting plugin for type application/x-shockwave-flash) is displayed at the bottom of the browser window and the movie is never played.  Any ideas as to what the problem could be?

(ps. the movie plays fine in ie 5 on the same machine and in NN4.8 & NN7 & IE6 on another machine)

thnx
Mike

Problem has been solved, I did not realize that the movie I was attempting to play required flash player 6+.  I upgraded the flash player on my development testing machine and am able to view the movie.  Just a foolish oversight on my part.
