OK, I have a legit website. Because of limited space on the hosted sites computer, I only have the markup files loaded there. The music videos are on my machine here at my house. Supposedly, my SP is not blocking anything. Verizon if it helps.

I have a linksys router connected directly to them and is forwarding all requests to my server. The machine is a stand alone computer since I read that cross domain may be an issue. I am using the free flowplayer. Videos are in .flv, mp4, mpeg, m4v format. The ones supported by flowplayer.

I had this at one point working perfect at my house using IIS on a test domain with 2003 servers. Couldnt get it to load in IE but thats a separate html5 issue.

What else could I add? My server is in the dmz, and firewall is off. They play locally so what could be blocking them. Get the old file not found. But I can browse to and play them.

Should I try and move 1 file up to my hosted site? Connect directly to the SP from my house, no linksys? Im at a lose here.

Is it possible to share from my house? Has to be... TIA
