Layers have no effect really, because they're condensed into one layer on
export. make sure you don't have a stop action in the first frame of the
movie clip. You might even want to insert a play action there, although
there's no reason it's needed. there are lots of things that could be
causing trouble, so the best thing would be if you can post the .fla on a
web- or ftp-server and give us the address.
