In order to play FLV files in an HTML page, you need a "SWF wrapper" which loads in each video one by one. There are several video players already out there, or you can make one of your own if you own Flash Professional.

This previous question may be of some help (also, see the diagram down at the bottom and the description with the difference between embedding the video files in the SWF, and loading them at runtime)
http://www.experts-exchange.com/Software/Photos_Graphics/Web_Graphics/Macromedia_Flash/Q_26102365.html

Just ask if you have any further questions.

Cheers,
Andreas

see http://www.longtailvideo.com/players/jw-flv-player/
for a flv player.

First just make sure you can play a single video file and that you can detect when it ends.

Then, create a javascript array with all videos (generate the JS array from PHP), and as soon as a file is done playing, play the next in the list

Coonsider using YouTube or Vimeo - these sites have done the heavy lifting already.

I don't see the problem.
Both solutions allow you to add video files (maybe youtube will remove some if they are not in accordance with their rules)
you can add files to youtube. you just have to create an account to do so, and manage them
