Trouble viewing an uploaded file

Medium Priority
Last Modified: 2013-12-24
I added a page to a friends web site awhile back where people can go to download overlays to display on their web cam when in a chat room. At the top of the web page I have this statement "Left click on a overlay to view it, right click on a overlay and select "save target as" to download it"

This has been working great. Today I uploaded two new overlays for him (first time anything has been uploaded to this page in a few months) and when I left click on either of the two new overlays a browsers page opens but the overlay will not preview. All the previous uploaded overlays work well.

Another problem I have is when I right click and download one of the new overlays I can't get it to work even though the size of the file (.swf) is correct. Before I uploaded and downloaded the files they worked.

Any help would be appreciated.

I believe I found the problem I think it was was an upload problem.
