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

http://www.shipfish2u.com/Video/SF2U_Loader/sf2u_loader.mp4 is not opening. This means kindly check with your server access settings.

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.
