I know the diff between and Flash and Flash Live Video. I'm producting a video for advertising. At the end of the video I want to overlay a button instructing the user to click here if they'd like to sign up for a demo.  With flash this is easy. Is it possible to do something with an flv file? I know youtube displays links on some of their videos. Is this built into youtube?

Thanks,
Glenn

No, that's not possible with the FLV video...  There is no interactivity you can add inside the FLV or any other movie files like WMV or AVI...  It's the job of the FLV player that should throw in whatever interactivity you'd like add in...
In other words, yes such functionality is built into the Youtube because that's how they programmed their FLV player...  So, you'd need to do the same thing if you want to achieve that...

Any recommendations on a flv player that I could use and then customize the 'on video finished' event to display a button to say 'click here to sign up of a demo' ?

You could try using the JW Player as a base and add in whatever you need in it...
