Hi,

I have created a custom .flv player using Flash CS built in flv controls. The .flv movie I converted plays fine locally (I have not set an explicit path in the Flash project just / so that it looks in the root of the website for the movie) but when I upload the .flv to the website it fails to play.

The link can be found here:

Thanks in advance

Your IIS server isn't set to serve FLV files by default.

try this - it's a common problem...
