I need to be able to set the contentPath from my FLVplayback, but I cann't get it to work.

if I do this on my swf file it works.

myFLVPlayer.contentPath = "myvideo.flv";

but when I send the movie name from the HTML page it doesn't work.
I created a falshVar so I can send it to my swf file. Here is my code... also I have a debug textbox to see if the name is correct.

*****
I can get the name to display on my textbox.
debug.text = trace(_root.flvFileName);

but when I set the contentPath to my trace(_root.flvFileName); it doesn't work.

How can I do that? I just need to set the contentPath on my FLVPlayback.

on my fla file I have a FLVPlayback that I called myFLVPlayer in one layer,
and I have another layer with this action script; myFLVPlayer.contentPath = _root.flvFileName;

that's it.

one question.
Why it always play the first movie that I load?
If I send another movie to play it will not play the new movie, always play the old one.

mmmmmmmmm
really dont know .... i think its better to use video class
its better than FLVplayback

when u use video class u make only  one netconnection class to it
then u can make multi net stream class instance .... every instance will display difent flv file

video class is the beat way to display FLV ... it gives you alot of option to controll ur FLV files easly

I need this because I have 3 movies to display in different pages, and I don't want to make one SWF for each page, I would like to create on player and just send the flash video file to the player.

open new file
open library
from the lable of the library panel click the right of the lable of the panel
chose new video and chose it as action script cotrolled then press ok
it will apper on ur library    ...... drag it from library into the stage
give it instance name " theVideo " 

go to frist frame and put this action :


var nc:NetConnection = new NetConnection();
nc.connect(null);

var ns:NetStream = new NetStream(nc);

theVideo.attachVideo(ns);
ns.play("ur flv file here.flv");

FLAASHER,
     I have the movie working, and when I load the movie I don't see the play,pause, etc from the control. Do I need to add all of it? Or is there a easy way that I can add everything like using the FLVPlayback?
