Well, I'm getting video. Perhaps the person on the phone and the person 'adding' the mime type were not coordinated with each other.
Thank you for your response.I didn't type the correct url for the site that is not playing the videos. Sorry about that. Correct url is:
I am still getting white boxes when I play FLVs through SWFs as progressive download. However, just a SWF by itself will work, but this method is not efficient for my purposes since the SWF files by themselves are way too large and play too slow. I found that compressing and playing videos as FLV referenced to a SWF will knock file size down tremendously and play much better.
Again, I tested the same exact FLV videos in another site just to see if in fact the problem was with how I set them up to play. This "old site" was one which had a MIME type added about a year ago and the videos work on that site just fine, which gives me some hope. That is the site that you viewed. (http://www.adamclarkart.com) This was just for testing purposes though, and is not the site which I need to play the videos on.
I have looked at both sites carefully and cannot see any differences in the way the videos are setup to play. I have pestered my service provider with emails asking them to double-check that they added MIME type corrrectly. They just tell me that issue has already been addressed. I think I will have to make a call to them. I have been tormented by this for days...
I don't know. I am not getting video on the corrected URL, and when I put the name of the swf file in by itself in your URL, I am not getting a video AND I am not getting an error message.
I was going to suggest that your path was awry, but if there's no error message, it seems that something else is going on.
I'm not highly experienced with FLV; I know when I put in an swf with a bad path, I get an error.
Is it way too big? How could it be?
