Hi,

I used Flash Encoder 8 to convert an MPEG to Flash movie to be inserted into a web page. When the file was converted to .flv (I think!), I tried to open in Flash Player 8 and nothing opened - just a blank area in Flash Player 8.

Any idea what went wrong?

You can't just play the FLV file.
Start a new swf document and import the FLV file. Make sure you read the documentation on this, can be tricky.

If you want to check your flv file, there are several stand alone software packages to play them.

This one is a good player http://www.download.com/FLV-Player/3000-2139_4-10467081.html
