Hello, I have this player that is wigging out on mov files but plays all the rest just fine.  It works locally but not online...  I need to fix this to play a mov file streamed to the client computer, (progressive download?).  Any help here would be great as I can get the flvs to work great, but just not the mov file which is so much smaller... thank you...

    It seems to work for me...sometimes.  However, I noticed the preloader usually freaks out and starts counting large negative numbers.

    The movie file is relatively small (~330k).  Can you just cut out the preloader, or load it without streaming?  I think somehow the preloader and streaming are working against each other.

    I wish I was a better programmer to be able to debug your code, but I hope this helps.

    Also, to be safe, you might want to close the gaps in the name of your MOV file (Underwater with underscores or no space.  You never know what's going to freak out and not be able to intepret the spaces.
