Hey Guys and to Others Interested:
I spoke to Ray yesterday via a ticket, and we got very close to fixing the problem.
1) It seems my code was correct, but Ray figured out that my code was trying to reference my flv file but but I had not uploaded the flv file my server.
also, We had to modify my swf file, created by adobe flash, so the code within the swf referenced the flv file from the URL of my site.
2) Where we were still hung up yesterday was that, apparently, you MUST have your swf, flv, and skin, in the root directory. I think you told me to do this Neilo in your posts, but I didn't listen well enough, i guess bc I had a other issues that were limiting me.
Having said all that, the video looks great with the skin, and now I will be able to use adobe flash to make a sweet looking page with movies on top background graphics and possible animation. page.php?News=1
Thanks very much for your time, feedback and support.
