I am consistently running into the following problem, across all browsers. Upon inserting a .flv file, no matter what skin I choose, I get only the skin buttons-the video will not load, despite the path being correct. It seems to work fine on a Mac-the problem is on PC XP.
Hi - I'm not sure why it doesn't preview locally the way it should... I seem to have the same problem. My only fix for the short term is to upload the files to the server to preview, and it should work for you. I think it has something to do with the settings for the flash player - there are instructions to adjust the flash player settings in the settings manager to allow certain URL's to display properly... instructions for that are at the following link: http://www.macromedia.com/support/documentation/en/flashplayer/help/settings_manager04a.ht ml
Hope that helps...
You're right it worked fine from my testing server. To preview locally I followed the link below and enabled my entire folder-worked like a charm.
