Flash 8 vs. Flash 7

Hello,
I just completed a nice little project making use of the
FLVPlayback features of Flash 8. I imported video files and encoded
them to .flv files and stream them from a server. Works great.
However, I just learned that some of my customers run Linux and can
not access the system because they can not run the Flash 8 player.
Does anyone know if these same features are available in Flash7
(which I belive is also called Flash MX 2004)? I have Flash 6
installed and I know they do not exist there. Thanks for any help.

The FLVPlayback component requires Flash Player 8. The Media
components
(also in the Components panel) work in Flash Players 6 and 7.
Your success
will also depend on what FLV encoding you used. The On2 codec
requires
Flash Player 8.
