I suggest the working examples that ship with Wowza here:
Check out the simplevideostreaming example, open the FLA file with Flash, go to the layer 1 actionframe, and look for the NetStream and NetConnection, and how to connect and play videos. It’s all working already in these examples and you can modify them and use them.
I had already gotten the simplevideostreaming example to work. I was able to select the Layer 1 in the simplestreamingvideo.fla file, and to open the Actions Window. There I was able to find some entries that used NetStream, but none that looked anything like this:
Did the author mean “nsplay”?
The following looked a bit like it might be related, since the comment above it indicated it’s about playing a video. I don’t see how this relates to the suggestion above, though.
I think the problem I have is that this simplevideostreaming example is actually quite complex. I appreciate that the market for Wowza in the past has been for technical professionals, but I don’t want to become a Flash guru, I just want to play clips from our vast collection of long-tail Knowledge Management videos. Could I beg someone to create a REALLY, REALLY, REALLY simple (“hello world” level) example of playing a video from a defined time?
