the mp4 file is on the server in the /video/sf2u_loader folder
When I am in my FTP program, on the local side I execute the files and they work, if I execute the one on the remote side it fails.  I have cleaned it up again and it still does not work.  This is really strange...thanks for your help

I am guessing I am missing something here.  Just in case...here is a snapshot of the server folder.

Pretend you are talking to a six-year-old

Is this a linus server? Then check for case-sensitivity.

Nope, its Windows.  I have sent an email to the server master and he will check it out.  I have lots of flash on the site...this is the first time I have had any trouble.  Might be something small.

It was a mime problem.. If you have a second to take another look at it now that it works and tell me how to get rid of the border around the skip intro link image...it would be appreciated.

THANKS for you help!!
