Need to reference domain name from IP

My Flash video chat room needs to be referenced from the domain. I have a dedicated Windows 2003 server wherein my Red5 is in the C:\Program Files\Red5 folder and all my web domains are in the D:\Websites folder path. Now, in each domain, I'd like to create a folder for their own video chat room, but in my flash actionscript, the IP is part of the path (Please see attached snippet). So, I need to know how I can include a domain folder in this path where the value = /red5chat/. So, let's say one website on my server is at www.mydomain.com, I was thinking of changing the value to something like this
http://"+_root.IP+"/mydomain.com/testlogin.php but that doesn't work. Hence this question for Expert help: How can I do this?

edit the FLA red5Chat.fla and configure these lines:
_root.IP = "88.191.36.127";
_root.port=1934;
_root.authentificateURL = "http://"+_root.IP+"/red5chat/testlogin.php";
_root.infoUserURL="http://"+_root.IP+"/red5chat/infouser.php";

Open in new window

Well, then it seems all you need to do is set up a set of redirect rules. This is a an ISAPI filter that I use to rewrite requests for our webserver:
http://www.codeplex.com/IIRF

You'd have something like this in the ini file:

# If the requested host matches any of the following domains
# foo.com
# mydomain.com
# bar.com
# www subdomain is optional
RewriteCond %{HTTP_HOST}  ^(www.)?(abcd.com|mydomain.com|anotherdomain.com)$
RedirectRule  ^/foobarbaz$ http://88.191.36.127/%2/testlogin.php [R]

Do you want a single Virtual Website in IIS that contains a list of directories, each directory for a domain?
Are you wanting to use a single compiled version of the Flash program, or is the snippet a config file for the flash program, which will reside in the domain?
I'm afraid I can't work out what exactly you want the end result to look like.

This is actionscript in a single .Fla file: "http://"+_root.IP+"/red5chat/testlogin.php";
Where it reads "/red5chat/" is a folder in "C:\Program Files\Red5" on my dedicated server.

Sorry mate, but I really I really don't get what you need. A lack of answers tends to imply that other users don't either.
I've never used Red5, so regarding the flash configuration I'm not going to be much use, but I've got a fair amount of experience regarding IIS & .Net

This is the setup I think you want is this:
IIS
  -  mydomain.com -> http://88.191.36.127/mydomain.com/testlogin.php
  - foo.com -> http://88.191.36.127/foo.com/testlogin.php
  - bar.com -> http://88.191.36.127/bar.com/testlogin.php
  - 88.191.36.127
      - /mydomain.com/testlogin.php
      - /foo.com/testlogin.php
      - /bar.com/testlogin.php

Is this correct, if not can you explain the setup you want.

What's stopping your adding a virtual directory in each domain, then you don't have to reference the actionscript uri by IP.
If you just want single login page, can't you modify login.php to accept the domain as a querystring?

Well, it sure seems like you understand, Mate, as you have written http://88.191.36.127/mydomain.com/testlogin.php. You see, Mate, I have a dedicated server, and the _root.IP = "88.191.36.127"; represents my dedicated server on which Red5 is installed. However, on my dedicated server, there are several domain names in my D drive. Can you see what I'm trying to say now?
