Problem with FLV component

I am loading some video in through xml and when I run the function that plays the video I get the error: Unable to make connection to server or to find FLV on server.

My flv component is inside of a movieClip ( for attachMovie purposes ) vidPlayer is the instance name of the actual component.

function loadVid(itemID:Number, target:Number) {
    var src = projXML.firstChild.childNodes[target].childNodes[itemID].attributes.src;
    var width = projXML.firstChild.childNodes[target].childNodes[itemID].attributes.width;
    var height = projXML.firstChild.childNodes[target].childNodes[itemID].attributes.height;
    var vidClip = _root.createEmptyMovieClip("vidHolder", 5687);
    var connection:NetConnection = new NetConnection();
    var stream:NetStream = new NetStream(connection);
