Embedded Flash Video not showing up in browser (Works locally though)

I'm trying to embed a flash video file (.flv) in a basic html document using Dreamweaver.  When I choose to "preview in browser" (locally) it works fine.  However, when I try to view it on my live server, nothing shows up.  I'm confident that I've uploaded the necessary files, which are  the .flv file itself, the skin file (.swf) and the player file (FLVPlayer_Progressive.swf).  Dreamweaver builds the process that uses all of these and I've uploaded them.  I'm just stumped as to why nothing shows up when trying to view it on the remote host.  Any tips would be appreciated greatly!

The site where the video SHOULD show up is http://www.pbu.edu/videos/videotest.htm

Check the permissions on your files.

Sometimes you need to add flv as a mime type to the server also.

I don't think you have a problem at the server, the video is showing up ok here when i click the link.

I also see the video correctly, have you made changes to the permissions or mime types?

Yep, that did it.  For those of you who kindly responded subsequent to the first post and this one, you were able to see it successfully because we made the adjustment to the MIME settings and solved the problem.  Thanks so much.
