first, there are a paint bucket fill options that automatically close gaps:

that will probably help you avoid problems.

 

but to see small gaps, use the zoom tool to drag a rectangle around the shape (or parts of the shape):

 

before zoom:

after dragging zoom tool magnifier:

now, this shape may look like it's closed, but it is not.  ie, it won't fill unless you select the close medium (or large gaps) option which surprised me.  i thought selecting close small gaps would be suffi

You seem to lack fundamental knowledge how to use the most basic features of Animate.

Consider going through the basic tutorials I posted in your other thread.

 

To fill with be bucket you need closed shapes.

Draw a box that will close those as shown here:

Clipboard-1.png

Then you can fill them in:

But you will immediately notice that the colour leaks into other shapes.

To check your outlines, zoom in and inspect them in outline mode. Then you will see that most are actually not connected at all:

Learn the basics with something simpler. This seems like a very complex image to attempt at your current level of knowledge.

Thanks for the information and explanation. I acknowledged some of them wasn't closed like the last pic. The video I shown above that my problem was I am unable to fill certain regions which isn't the case like the one that have closed shape.

 

But from the second pic, u have shown me that the regions (edit: in the video) is able to be filled. Any solution u have attempted, or u just fill the color and it worked?

I showed you in the first picture: draw a box. Look at the black rectangle. It is not the stage. I drew that rectangle.

I said all that I could say in my attempt to help you with this issue, mate.

Do simpler exercises until you master the basics.

Good luck!

I managed to get some of them filled by drawing a box around. But how do I know they are not closed, it is visible to me that all of them are already closed from what I can see.
