I ended up downloading your SWF file and converting it back into an FLA. I
went into the Library and found the videos that you have just turned into
movieclip symbols. The symbols are named sprite130, sprite157, sprite161, and
sprite169 in the Library. If you double click on any one of them in the
Library they will open on the main stage. Now if you click on the video
component on the stage and then hit F9 on your keyboard(or go Window>Actions),
the Actions panel should open up and there will be actionscript code there
which looks like the following.
(This is in the sprite130 movieclip)
autoPlay = true;
autoRewind = true;
autoSize = false;
bufferTime = 1.000000E-001;
contentPath = "LazY Trumpet Pictures 012.flv";
isLive = false;
maintainAspectRatio = true;
skin = "MojaveExternalAll.swf";
skinAutoHide = false;
totalTime = 0;
version_1_0_2 = "";
volume = 100;
This was the code I was talking about. This is the code that you need to
delete. It's on all the video components in the 4 movieclip symbols above. How
that code got there in the first place is a mystery to me. But all that the
code is doing is running the parameters that have already been set in the
Parameters tab of the video component. And the reason the videos weren't
playing is because Flash got confused as to which parameter settings to follow
- and thus, ended up doing nothing.
Now, you can either leave the video inside the movieclip symbols or you can
return the videos back to their positions on the main stage. Either way you
still need to get rid of that code.
I'm sorry I had to go thru a backdoor and open your Flash movie, but I was
certain that there was code on those components. I have destroyed both the FLA
and SWF file.
Hope that helps!
