Uploading a SWF to the BreezeServer for playing FLV Content on BreezeServer.

I'm creating a SWF that only contains the MediaPlayback component in Flash and that would ideally by linked to a FLV in the content section of the Breeze server. Although I can get an absolute path to the folder that the FLV was uploaded to (i.e., http://mycompanyname.breezecentral.com/p58544386/) and I know the name of the FLV file (i.e., John DoeSm.flv), when I setup the MediaPlayback component to point to http://mycompanyname.breezecentral.com/p58544386/John DoeSm.flv, I get nothing.

The reason WHY I am setting up this SWF to "play" the FLV file, is because the I can setup the MediaPlayback component to automatically start playing content. The Media Player that is built into the Breeze Server doesn't allow for the FLV to begin automatically. Has anyone been able to get this to work or have any recommendations? Below is the research I've done to try and make this work, but with no avail:

I thought that this might be a sandbox issue so I uploaded the SWF (MediaPlayback Component) and the FLV to the Breeze Server. Linking to the FLV by relative and absolute paths (In a browser, If you type in the absolute path, followed by the actual filename, you get an error message from the Breeze server, "Not Found") did nothing for me.

I thought that the permissions might also be causing the problem, so I made sure to manually setup the SWF and FLV files to "Allow for Public Viewing", which didn't do anything for me either.

I also tried putting the running my SWF locally, with hopes that an absolute path to the FLV would be able to link to and play the video content, but again, with no avail.

You will need to create an html wrapper (named "index.htm"). Make sure all the files are in the same folder. Use a relative path from the player swf to the flv.
Zip the folder and upload as content.
That is the general process for uploading swf's that load other content. All the files have to be in the same zip. As far as I can tell there isn't a way to do it without an html wrapper.
Hope that helps,
Jeremy

That's great to know Jeremy (nice name, BTW). Breeze Support also recommended the following process which worked well too:

The generated URL for a FLV file on a Breeze Communication server will look something like this:
http://macromedia.breezecentral.com/p87121699/

But the link to the actual FLV is inside:
http://macromedia.breezecentral.com/p87121699/output/<filename>.flv

So make sure that the FLV file have the permission to "Allow public viewing", and have your Media playback control to point at this format: http://macromedia.breezecentral.com/p87121699/output/<filename>.flv
