I converted an avi file to a flash file for my website.
The player buttons on the TV Montor do not work. An error message shows up at the bottom of my webpage. Also the TV montor page became my index page of my website, When I just wanted to us them as samples on my site. How do I correct this problem.

My website www.swordproductions.com

The video works fine for me.

To fix it from being your homepage, rename the file created by VideoWrap (index.html) to something else. You may need to reupload your old index.html file.

That's interesting - I've just checked Marcel's site and I have the same problem - the buttons on the TV don't work. I can get the clip to play via the player bar but not the play button on the TV itself.

I suspect this is to do with my firewall settings. Did you manage to get your buttons to work Marcel?

I just got the product and am having similar problems. The site is www.partners-in-ministry.org/12-16-sermon/ The flash works fine in local mode and the banner image comes up in the video box, but when I click on the video box I get a "wheel" (Macc) and the video never appears.

Is there a player file(s) that must be copied to the website root from the Videowrap folder in order to get the video to play? I simply hosted the folder to my web site and linked to the folder's index file, but this brings up the template but on play, nothing happens (except the spinning Mac wheel).

Thanks Cogz, but I never got your e-mail so I'm still in the dark.

Ok, to quote what I sent...

"Yes, I've tried to view your flash movie using FireFox here and indeed it doesn't seem to load. When you encoded to the flash format on your hard drive before uploading it, did it play in the browser then? It should have created a .flv file which is the actual flash movie, if it wasn't in the original folder before you uploaded it maybe an error occured during the encoding. To answer your other question, no you don't need to copy anything to the root, just uploading the folder "as is" will work.

So firstly, I would double check for the .flv file, if it doesn't exist, try encoding it again. Failing that, you'll have to tell me some more information about the original source movie file so I can try to figure out why the encoding isn't working."

Works fine in the Browser from the local folder. I've compared the file sizes, etc local to remote using FireFTP (the client I used to uploac the folder and even re transferred the FLV file, which was there. Still no dice.

The original was a 15 min piece I captured on a Sony DVD Camcorder, then ripped it to a MOV file using Mac The Ripper, thence to this program. I also created an MP4 file for iPhone that works fine. I'm using a MacPro for this application and so far haven't had any luck. Actually tried from another site with same result. Here's the INDEX.HTML code from the folder. Maybe it contains a clue:

Do you think this issue might be related to the problem? If so, what do I do about it? Have to go to my ISP, or can this be mounted within the FXHome folder?

Well, I think the problem WAS with the server. My ISP finally admitted he had not registered FLV files on our server. Bummer. That seemed to fix things. I am still having intermittent problems on another server. I create the Videowrap directory and upload it to the server, but for some reason the browser cannot find the URL to the folder index.html until I link it from the site index.html. Using a Linux server and Dreamweaver. DW seems to want to get involved even after I FTP the folder up.

I think there's still something about the process I don't understand. The files consistently load from my computer.
