    Having problems with video link

    bobbytheman Level 1

      Trying to apply some Robert Reinhardth Techniques:


      I have my expressInstall & swfobject.js & flv & html page in the same folder. Why is it that when I look at it in browser it doesn't show up? I think it has something to do with the videoURL. Everything is in the same folder. Can someone tell me what I'm doing wrong?

      This is the java script in my html page.




      <script type="text/javascript">
      // <![CDATA[   
      var flashvars = {
          skinURL: "SkinOverPlaySeekFullscreen.swf",
          videoURL: "seattle_timelapse_VP6_384K.flv",
          autoPlay: "false",
          autoRewind: "false"


      var params = {
          bgcolor: "#FFFFFF",
          allowfullscreen: "true",
          salign: "tl"


      var attributes = {
          id: "main",
          name: "main"


      // ]]>

          You mention

          "expressInstall & swfobject.js & flv & html page in the same folder"

          but did not mention the player .swf file, the actual video player. Have you uploaded the skin or player .swf also?

          Have you included a link to the swfobject in the head? something like this:

          <script type="text/javascript" src="swfobject.js"></script>

          By the way, there is no techincal need to have all the files in one folder. You can place the individual files in whatever folders you want as long as you use the correct relative path to gather all those files into the html page.

          Best wishes.
