Support » Fixing WordPress » FLV videos not playing

  • Hi, when I embed a flv file into a blog or page it does not play. The source code reveals that the file is recognised but I can only see a blank space on the page. I have tried with .mov and .wmv files and these work fine.

    I have tried loading both FLV player and Embed FLV plugins and have tried switching off all other plug ins but still no luck.

    Can anyone help?

    Hi, I do need some help, im trying to insert a video in flv format in wordpress post, for that I installed the WP-FLV plugin.
    Everything is ok, the file is in flv format, in the uploads folder, but wordpress recognizes it as a flv.fla file, Is it normal?
    Then when posting, I do put the path to the file on the post wraped with the code for it.
    It really shows the player, but if I finish the path with …/promo.flv , it says that “video not found or access denied, if I change it …/promo1.flv.fla error#2032 (I guess thats because its flv.fla)

    code for the post
    <flv href="/uploads/2009/07/promo1.flv" width="320" height="240" autostart="false" />
