Video wont dispay once loaded on server.

Posted on 2008-11-13
Last Modified: 2012-05-05
I'm trying to add a video to my site. I'm using Dreamweaver and have used the "insert>media>flash object" command to generate my code. The video works fine on my local server, but when I upload it to the remote computer all I get is a white spot where the video should be. The server configuration is exactly the same as my local server. The file AC_RunActiveContent has been uploaded and is in the /scripts folder. Does anyone have any ideas as to what is going on here? Thanks.

    Hi Elliott,

    If this is a Windows server, you may have to ask the server admin to associate the .flv mime type correctly:
