    f4v's not loading

    dasherk Level 1



      I started with a flash catalyst project... exported the swf, and uploaded the deploy-to-web version to my web server. The local version I published worked perfectly. The web version loads fine, but not the videos......... I can't figure out why.


      I've doubled checked the files were all loaded correctly, and even uploaded a second copy to the root.... same results. I attempted to load only one of the videos in chrome (built in f4v player - neat eh?)... and the video loaded and played. So I tried loading the main.mxml into flash builder... and I changed the paths from simply assets/media/xxxxx.f4v to the full path http://www.pccompclean.com/etc/etc/etc and it still didn't work. At this point, its 12:30am and I want to jump out my office window from pure frustration (don't worry, I wont)....


      Please help me..............

          ugh... so its 1:30am...


          and i finally found the problem.... i did a batch job on vids, reencoded  as FLV instead of F4V... voila... success......................... kind of.


          so now im left with videos that dont work... for a reason i dont understand. and 2, videos that do work, and are smaller, but at a different resolution....

            This problem has finally been solved with some help from IT... turns out the server (Win2k3) does not have a MIME-type entry for F4V's... which makes sense, why would it have one?
