    I have followed your instructions to the letter but still my video won't play. How do I...

    "Check that your PHP installation has the CURL extension active and activate the plugin throught the "plugins" menu found in the WordPress backend."

    What does that mean in simple English and how can I do that?

    Also... how do you display the flash video pic for your video? Is this correct (below)? I can't see any examples... Wish developers would put more examples in for us non-programmer types. :-)

    Thanks :-)

    Hi Martin,
    Sorry on the delay in getting back to you. Curl extension is simply referering to a library that needs to be included with the installation of PHP running on your server. To Check this open notepad or similar create a file named test.php with the contents:


    And then view the file in a browser it will tell you everything about PHP running on your server. Scroll down or ctrl + F to search and look for CURL if its there your server has everything you need.

    As for the second question I am not exactly sure what you mean. Are you talking about static picture i.e a picture that shows while the video is not playing?
