Hi

I've activated the MYMETypes FLV in my webserver iis windows 2003. I have a folder/application A which has flv files ( video and audio) and index.html and they play in the browser.

I have another folder/application B with html and swf and the video does not play. I put this application B in a windows 2000 server and the video plays.

Could you help me ?

workflow80,

Is this the MIME type that you added?

Extension: .swf
MIME Type: application/x-shockwave-flash

If not, then add that one additionally to IIS and you should be all set.

.swf was already added.  Inside the folder where the programmer put the camtasia page there is an html file, .swf and .mp4. I've tried to add the mime type .mp4 but each time i've restarted the IIS it dissapear the .mp4 mime type.

The linked question shows the MIME type as audio/mpeg, but I think it should be video/mp4 << try that!
