Setting Correct Link Paths:

Depending on your server configuration you may have to use one of several paths to link to your media.

#1 : Directly linking to your path on your server

if this gives you issues try

#2 : Linking to a folder direct


if this gives you an error try


One of these options should work best. Try different options to get the best results!

Some direct links to outside flv's may experience long buffer times - so check those links!

Firefox has some known issues with streaming audio and video - If your video starts and then stops suddenly, you may want to close and and restart your browser.

You can load you tube videos into the player by finding the direct youtube link to the flv or downloading the flv with the firefox videograbber, there are many online scripts and video flv grabbers available. The link must be a direct link to .flv not just a youtube code. Due to the constaint changes in youtubes API some of the flv grabbers might be out of date.
