Assuming you have an instance of the FLV component in your library named FLVPlayback, the following code will dynamically add an instance to the stage, play the flv, and when complete, remove the flv component and goto frame 10.

If you search for flv in the Flash help you will find reference to other parameters for the flv component such as auto hiding skin, autoplay etc.

And obviously you will have to change the sizing, positioning and naming parameters to suit your needs.
import mx.video.*;
_root.attachMovie("FLVPlayback", "my_FLVPlybk", 1, {width:400, height:300, x:10, y:10});
 
_root.my_FLVPlybk.width = 400;
_root.my_FLVPlybk.height = 300;
_root.my_FLVPlybk.contentPath = "movie.flv";
_root.my_FLVPlybk.skin = "steeloverall.flv";
 
var listener = new Object();
listener.complete = function(evt)
{
  removeMovieClip(_root.my_FLVPlybk);
gotoAndPlay(10);
}
_root.my_FLVPlybk.addEventListener( "complete", listener );
