How to stream a local flv video from a remote server

Is there a way to have a flash program that resides on a remote server (my server) play a video file that is on a user's computer? So, for example, a client PC will have a file "c:\movie.flv". The flash program (fla) would be run off of a web server (say, "www.example.com/program.fla"). The flash program would then look to the client's PC and play c:\movie.flv?

Oh, and I need this to work with Actionscript 2.0

Thank you!
