DW cs5:  trying to use the insert FLV function:  all I get is - Screen Shot 2013-01-09 at 9.50.08 AM.png

The page and the Scripts folder are in the same root folder.

What am I doing wrong.  I used encoder to make .mov into .flv.

    Hi John,


    here are all the required DW-steps. In order you could control this, I'll try to describe in detail from the beginning (translated from my German DW):

    Create a really new subdirectory (only for this trial, later put in your file in question).
    Create a new html/php-file(only for this trial).
    Work in designMode --> Insert Flash-Video.
    Search/browse ---> yourFLV.flv
    Skin: Halo Skin 3 (min. width 280) ( it was my choice)
    width 640 ( it's my choice)
    height 480 ( it's my choice)
    I clicked all the boxes

    ---> And now away with all these files below (produced from DW) to your server and there in your directory you have worked with.

    Best you have a look with WIN-Explorer into your directory, to see all the files DW has created in your subdirectory and don't forget one):


    YourFlv.htm (or YourFlv.php)
    Clear_Skin_1.swf (my choice)
