I want to put a .flv video on my web site so I copied this code from somewhere but the video does not display.

Where is wrong?

First of all, I had never heard of .flv file being able to play online, just .swf. But apparently, it can work. So, I wonder where you got that code from. Can you post the url to that?

I didn't know that either. I thought .flv was the master file, the one that can be edited, and that you had to create a .swf from that.
Frederiek
Yeah, me too. But I searched a little bit and found out that somehow it seems possible. I didn't really look into it, as I don't do Flash.

But, I wonder about the URLs in the snippet for the file. The domain name results elsewhere.

Besides, Flash has since 2005 been taken over by Adobe. So, even the Macromedia URLs need to be updated. Oh wait, there's still a macromedia site, with the Adobe logo.
