    Insert Flash Video won't

    pbensky
      I have created a little test Flash movie. In DW I go t Insert->Media->Flash video.Click on Browse and select the movie (testmovie.swf).
      Click on Detect Size: after a wait it says the dimensions could not be detected. I enter them manually.
      Click on OK. It says "The URL cannot contain spaces or special characters. Change the path of the file name and try again"

      It DOESN'T contain any spaces or special characters! I get this same problem with any file I select.

      I can insert the movie by choosing Insert->Media->Flash, but then I don;t get the option to add controls to it.

      What am I doing wrong?
      The help files are, of course, no help whatsoever!

      TIA

          I should have said that I am using DW V8.02

            That suggests that you may be looking in the wrong place for these
            characters. Please do this -

            1. Create a new page (blank HTML).
            2. Drag and drop an image on the page, and before saving it, copy the code
            and paste it into a reply here.

            Let's see what that code looks like....
