Ruben,
There is a technical issue with the adobe forum site, so let me ask the same here.

I did checked VCAST and mobile shop and it worked great for those options. Still I have some questions.

I assume the 'video' parameter will always launch VCAST video.

1.Does FL support launching VCAST tones app? If so what would the syntax be?

2.I know cmshop was not made successful with 'Search' in some handset. Is it possible to do a exact app search like "Search=xyz" in FL?

VCast and MobileShop integration with FlashLite: It was not officially completed feature, however for now you can do the following to make it work in a limited way:
1. VCast integration:
- There used to be a restriction of the VCast player is that, you can't pass pass a arbitrary URL and expect VCast player to pull the video from there and playback. This restriction still exist (at least couple of months back when I checked). Packet video/Verizon has security around it.
- If you want to play video from local file system you need to have the wmv video file (requires a particular bitrate etc) at the following location fs:/verizonmediaplayer/downloads/
Unfortunately that doesn't help you anything much, because you as an application developer wouldn't be able to write any file in that location.
- What can be done: You can only lunch the VCast service or if you get a valid VCast URL from Verizon then you can lunch the VCast service with a specific URL. If you call
getURL("video:vcast") >>> will lunch the VCast service at the top level.
getURL("video:") >>> will lunch the Video player or VCast service at the sepecified URL.
Mobile Shop integration:
getURL("mobileshop:)
For example if you want to direct the user to the purchase page of an application/game you need to know the ItemID or the catalog ID from Verizon. In that case you can call
getURL("mobileshop:ItemID=3920129);
