Dynamically changing the SOURCE of the FLVPlayback component, AS3.0

I'm using the FLVPlayback component in an AS3.0 environment.

I want to be able to keep a single component on the stage but change the source parameter dynamically via ActionScript (I have made some thumbs and the user will click on a thumb and the thumb will load the new source).

I put an instance of the FLVPlayback on the stage and called it myPlayer, then tried to load different videos into it using the myPlayback.source method.

I could, of course create the whole thing dynamically using import and addChild, but I wanted to put the component on the stage manually, so I could easily choose a skin, scale and position.

But when I put it there manually, I cannot change the source using the statement in paragraph 3. Any tips?
