Video Control Bar in Flash Displays on HD but Not From Webserver

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation
Advertisement
I am using Flash Pro 8 - putting FLV files in SWF files using
Flash Pro 8 and then "publishing" to Html and SWF to a location on
my hard drive.
When I display the webpage from my Hard Drive from where ever
on my hard drive I initially published to from Flash 8 Pro -
everything works fine - videos play and video control bar shows and
works.
When I publish this website to web server the video displays
and plays but NO Video Controller Bar (at bottom of the video)
shows at all.
Symptom: when I make an Html, SWF and FLA file into a folder
on my hard drive and display them in the browser the video control
bar shows. When I copy those three files into the hard drive
website in FrontPage, the video shows but the video control bar
does not.
So, I re-made the Html, SWF, and FLA files and put them
directly into the FrontPage website (on my hard drive) then
everything works fine when I use broswer (IE 6 or Firefox). z
But, when I publish the hard drive website to the remote
website hosting company, the video control bar disappears -
everything else works fine (video shows OK just no video controller
bar.)
My guess is that the SWF file has a non-relative URL
reference concerning the video control bar and when the three files
(Html, SWF and FLA) are moved to new location then that
non-relative address rears its head.
I should NOT publish from Flash 8 Pro directly to remote
webserver as it has FrontPage Extensions and does not like to talk
to FTP changes to website not coming from FrontPage client.
is my guess right? What to do?????

1. When I encoded the video in flash I selected one of the
pre-packaged control bars (so the user can control basic
functions). I then published an HTML and a .swf. The HTML works
perfectly however when I use Dreamweaver to insert the .swf it does
not carry over the control bar. I have tried pulling over the
control bar .swf and placing it under the video file but a HUGE
object is imported with a bunch of controls that do not work (bunch
of controls = play/pause/etc).
make sure the component skin is uploaded in same directory as
swf, movie, html

The second issue is this; the user still has to click once on
the video to use the controls... does anyone know what I am doing
wrong on the video file?
