Q: Chapter 5 videos have action script errors when trying to play them. What is causing this?

A: When adding a video from the library to the Stage, for some reason Flash forgets the file link.
To solve this, follow these steps:

  1. Click on the video on the Stage (after bringing it in from the library)
  2. Go to the Parameters tab down at the bottom (if it is not there, reveal the tab by going to Window > Properties > Parameters).
  3. Go to contentPath and click on the magnifying glass symbol to link to the local file the computer.
The file path names for the embedded FLVs are mangled. Changing the path to the correct link (the files are in the exercise files folder) solves the issue.
