I am trying to redirect the following URL:

http://mysite.com/mov/examplename.swf
To:
http://mysite.com/view.php?name=examplename

I have tried the following but it will not work:

RewriteEngine On
RewriteRule ^mov/([^/]*)\.swf view.php?name=$1 [L]

Can anyone see where I have gone wrong here? My .htaccess skills are not great but I'm pretty sure that should work?
