FLV doesn't load
on Jul 23, 2008 at 3:25:53 am

Hello,

I've been trying all evening to upload an FLV file to my webserver, but, the file doesn't seem to be working correctly. I created the FLV from a quicktime file using the flash encoder (both the Flash 8 and CS3 versions), and uploading it via cyberduck and fetch.

When it gets onto the server, the filesize is correct, but I get the "the page cannot be found" when I type the URL into the browser. I know I have the url correct, and I've tried placing the file in several different directories, and even on my school server (a different server) just in case. Nothing works. Even wierder, my Firefox download helper plugin detects the FLV is there, but, when I tried downloading it using that plugin, I get a very small file that is blank.

Does anyone have any idea what could be the problem here or any solutions? I really need to put flash video in the portfolio website I am trying to build, and I can't have problems like this happening.

Thank you,
Scott Richardson

make sure your web server is setup to recognize .flv files. It can be done by adding the mime-type for .flv files on your web settings. Ask your web hosting provider about this.

Is your server Linux or Windows?
Did you try playing it from an on-line SWF?
A link to your FLV file would also be helpful...
