Just to integrate, gnash doesn't support loading .flv as if they
were a top-level movie, still supports them if loaded by a NetStream
ActionScript object.
I think it would be nice to support direct .flv loading in a way
similar to the one we use to load .jpg files, that is create
a dummy SWFMovieDefinition, stick a NetConnection/NetStream in it
and point to the actual stream for loading...
See BitmapMovieDefinition/BitmapMovieInstance anyone willing to 
contribute a patch for that.
