Firebug is reporting that trailer.flv is not there.  Are you sure you uploaded it and uploaded it to the right place (public web root)?

I have the file trailer.flv in the same folder that the file video.html is in. It is bit of a strange hosting system for this site, where the site sits in a folder.

Is this a Windows server or a Linux one?

You are hosting the remote site from a Mac?

No, I just have the FTP information to upload the site. The site is hosted with 1and1

I had to have the video up, so I've streamed it from youtube, but I'd like to continue to troubleshoot this strange problem. I have put the page up here:

Forgive me, I'm not familiar with 1and1.  Is it Linux hosting or Windows?

Never mind, I got the server to report back.  You're hosting on Windows and the FLV mime type is not set.  Instructions to set it are here:

But you may need to contact 1and1 Support and get them to do it.
