Adding a poster image to a FLV video playback component

I have a fla file - which contains a FLV Playback component. Which seems to work nicely. However I need to add a poster image to the beginning of the video. Can anyone suggest how this is done? (I am using AS2)

Add an empty movieclip over the top of the FLVplayback component. Load your start image into it, then add an event listener and monitor for the FLVPlayback.playing event to remove the movieclip with the image

Hi EastCoast,

Unfortunately I am not savvy with writing AS - any chance you could elaborate a little more?
