Finding FLVPlaybackAS3.swc in CS4 for Flex

Back in April I posted about how to setup FLVPlayback in a Flex ActionScript Project.

I installed CS4 (and uninstalled CS3) Friday night before I took off for the weekend. I just made sure it opened and that was about it. This morning I open up my Eclipse/Flex workspace to find that all my projects that used the FLVPlaybackAS3.swc were busted. No biggie. It is currently pointed to:

C:/Program Files(x86)/Adobe/Adobe Flash CS3/en/Configuration/Components/Video/FLVPlaybackAS3.swc

I'll just swap out the CS3 to CS4 and it will be fixed... nope. There is no Components folder anymore. DOH.

With a little searching and hunting around you can find it here:

C:/Program Files (x86)/Adobe/Adobe Flash CS4/Common/Configuration/Components/Video/FLVPlaybackAS3.swc

Similarly, the component source can be found here:

C:/Program Files (x86)/Adobe/Adobe Flash CS4/Common/Configuration/Component Source/ActionScript 3.0/FLVPlayback

Hope that helps some people from searching too long.

VERY MUCH APPRECIATED! Just spent nearly an hour trying to find that and was about to give up and go back to building this thing in Flash instead of Flex...
