Ah! Glad you’ve figured it out. I’ll close this out then.

If you're providing an FLV, there's no need for primary: "flash" anyway. An FLV is, by definition, a Flash video, and can't be played with native HTML5. So, this video will always be played with Flash on a desktop/laptop, and won't be playable on a mobile device at all, no matter what you do.
