Just in case someone else has the problem above, it was simply when I copied and pasted the code from the example, it also pasted in some invisible returns/gibberish. I'm on a Mac so that may have been it. Once I deleted the spaces, the code was clear or errors.
Now my hopefully last problem:::::
I have got the main window working fine, the initial video in the main window, when you click for the private chat, that comes up, the guest trace is being passed and there are 2 new streams in the flashcom window with the chatters name in the 'name of the stream' area.
So apparently that all works, but I still, after hours and hours, cannot get the video in the private chat window to display.
Can anyone/has anyone gotten the example to work and if so, can you shed any light on this?
I'm burnt out trying.
For those who have read this far:
In the newRoom MC I've placed a video instance named my_video.
Something I didnt' understand was the attachMovie in the code, why do I need to attachMovie?, shouldn't the video instance sitting in the newRoom MC be enough?:
dstStream = new NetStream(_root.client_nc);
Please help...sleepless in Canada.
