I can't get the player ...I can't get the player to work becuase I'm getting an error "Video not found: video.flv" I know the video is named correctly and in the root of the site, however I still continue to receive this error. Please advise.

it seams that my provider don't allow .FLV because on an other hosting server work all with out problem!! if it's the case you have to indicate that some where, that people dont wast there time because it seams that yours is precious . Thank you any way for the trick
urlencode the "funny characters" *_ONLY_* in the URLbc.. file=http://allhenweb.brinkster.net/pfn/abcdef/vronik/get_video.php*%3F*v*%3D*3C9CH3q9PLI&type=flv You *_DO NOT_* need to urlencode:bc.. &type=flv
What he is saying is: bc.. Adobe Flash Player security restrictions require that the movie (mediaplayer.swf or player.swf) and all data files (playlist.xml, captions.xml, etc) _MUST_ come from the *_EXACT_* same domain unless you put a cross-domain policy file on the the server that is serving the data files.
Thanks for the tips on the MIME types. I didn't get it working at first actually, but for whatever reason, I changed the file paramter to a full path instead of relative it worked fine. I don't know why this worked, but it did :
I am making an archive disk of a site, that has to be able to be played locally on any computer. The site is currently using JW player and plays the videos and mp3s fine.
I localized all the links to relative urls so the site can be navigated offline. That part is working fine, except I am getting the "video not found" error when trying to play the videos. It plays the mp3s okay, and even loads the preview images for the videos, just won't play the .flv files.
Is this something that cannot be done without a webserver? The disk will have to be able to be used reliably on any computer.
Here is the code (which BTW, works perfectly on the server as I said):
ps - I have verified that the links are converted correctly, and the files are where they should be.
....interesting, though, if I am reading the tutorial correctly, this should apply to mp3s and images as well, but they don't work unless I make the links for them like regular html relative links would be. This was the case in both FF and Safari on OS X. Haven't tried other platforms yet.
Had a hard time finding the link to the tutorial, so here it is:
_"The first problem relates to relative linking of files. *When linking to MP3, image and XML files, you should always start from the location of the HTML in which the SWF is embedded.* So in the previous example, if the SWF was placed in a subdirectory, the flashvar pointing to the playlist would remain file=playlist.xml and not file=playlist.xml. *The one exception is that the path of FLV files should be given relatively from the SWF file.* In order to prevent confusion, you can always point to files using an absolute URL (including the "http://www")."_(Bold emphasis added.)
MP3, image, and XML - from the location of the HTML.
I have JW Image Rotator running elsewhere on the server without issues. The server is locally hosted (Apache2.2.9 on Ubuntu 8.10) - not an ISP issue flv is in my mimes.type file. I've tried adding the type variable I can copy the url in my file flashvar to the location bar and the file loads fine (into mplayer or vlc) I've tried various relative URL's but even the absolute URL give above returns the video not found error.
havin similar problems simply want to embed a media player in my site-+stream i used the wizzard thing-again like above i just need it in english-everyone going on about servers-can someone explain EXACTLY what these servers are & how to embed a url to stream the wizzard has no help section+you have to figure out as you go-so a simple thing left out may be the difference tween success+kickin the cat.........again! says upload swf file to your server-is that your website? or this mystery "server" that no one talks about. a lil clarity in englissh would really be appreciated,cheers
I found a solution to my problem of "Video not Found or Access Denied" and want to share it in the spirit of helping others. I certainly need to give something back after the amount of help I've needed just recently. I found that if I set the file to the full url : 'http://www.rockkitten1234.talktalk.net/media/corrie.flv, rather than 'media/corrie.flv', it works. Oh thank goodness, finally it works, hope you find this usefull.
I have strange problem.If i put this link in player it will not work (http://upstream.flvz.com/convertite/448.flv) but if i add port 81 on it (http://upstream.flvz.com:81/convertite/448.flv) video starts but only on certains browsers or machines...Any solution?
Yes,that is the problem,most of people get error message with both links,i know that first one goes with port 80 but second one with 81 should work for everyone,i dont know why others get error message (video not found)
I didnt...Week ago you could watch video from that server,but yesterday everything has changed,i checked with similar sites and all their video show the sam error (video not found)...than,i changed to port 81 and it works fine for me but many people seems to have problems when they try to open file with ywplayer on port 81,here is the link for similar site with normal port,this video worked until yesterday http://www.nicijazemlja.com/portal/components/com_video/film-prevedeno-ok/the-core-dvdrip-video_4877aa12b.html
1) Select the site to configure in IIS, right click and select "Properties" 2) Under HTTP Headers Tab, select "File Types" under the MIME Map section and select "New Type" 3) Type ".flv" as the associated extension and "video/x-flv" as the content type. 4) Select "OK" and you're ready to fly!
