If you export the LO and view locally does the .flv play then? It sounds
like mime types on the server a quick search of the archives should tell you
what's needed.

Subject: [Xerte] Media issue


Hello everybody,


I am struggling a little bit with videos. I understand that the videos which
are playable through the online toolkits are .flv. However, the system does
not seem to recognise my flv files (usually converted from mpg or something
else). I really don't quite know what to do next. The only thing that I can
think of is that the files are too big. Or maybe the flv files have to be in
a special format (mine are the default files generated by the AVS video
converter or by the Swish suite of programs)???


Any help would be appreciated. The system seems to ignore them completely
and nothing appears on the pages and the media preview complains that no
file has been selected. It all seems to work ok with sound files.


Thanks once again.



PS I have tried other formats too - but no result...
