Loading external swfs and flvs using xml

Can someone point me to a good tutorial that would
help me build a dynamic portfolio using AS2? I guess
I am confused about if there is different code to use
for loading pictures and other file types like flvs and
swfs. I know that I use a path to the file I want to
show in the XML. So do all I have to do is use a path
to a flv or swf and it will work the same?

Thanks to anyone who takes the time to answer
