    Flash not playing once uploaded to website

    azchuck86
      Hopefully someone can help. This seems like it should be so easy.

      When I test flash video .flv locally on my computer, everything looks and works great. Once I upload the html to my website, flash no longer plays. Server is Linux but that should not matter. I'm using Dreamweaver 8. Test code is below. Does anyone have any suggestions? I've included the FLVPlayer_Progressive.swf file and other swf in the same directory.

      cheers,
      Todd
