Load external flv in a mc on release

[COLOR=black]hello all[/COLOR]
[COLOR=black]i am attempting to load an external flv into an EmptyMC on my stage from a button all using actionscript 3.0. any ideas on how i can accomplish this? i have tried many different ways but nothing seems to be working…[/COLOR]
[COLOR=black]thanks for looking![/COLOR]

Here is the shimmy, as defined in the documentation:

package
{
    import fl.video.FLVPlayback;
    import flash.display.Sprite;
    
    public class FLVPlaybackExample extends Sprite {

        private var videoPath:String = "http://www.helpexamples.com/flash/video/caption_video.flv";
        
        public function FLVPlaybackExample() {
            player.source = videoPath;
            player.skinBackgroundColor = 0x666666;
            player.skinBackgroundAlpha = 0.5;
        }
    }
}
