    Hi everyone! I currently am working on a website redesign for one of my relatives. She would like a video at the beginning, like what sony has on their website (link here) but a little longer. She gave a video to work with (a crappy quality one) and I converted it to a flash video (FLV). Now, I am having trouble getting it to work is the problem. Here is the link to the page. And as you can see, it doesn't work. Here is the code I have inserted, and the path is correct:

    PHP:
    <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="640" height="360" id="FLVPlayer">
      <
    param name="movie" value="FLVPlayer_Progressive.swf" />
      <
    param name="quality" value="high" />
      <
    param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
      <
    param name="scale" value="noscale" />
      <
    param name="salign" value="lt" />
      <
    param name="FlashVars" value="&MM_ComponentVersion=1&skinName=Clear_Skin_1&streamName=beta/images/kriswilson&autoPlay=true&autoRewind=false" />
      <
    param name="swfversion" value="8,0,0,0" />
      <!-- 
    This param tag prompts users with Flash Player 6.0 r65 and higher to download the latest version of Flash PlayerDelete it if you don’t want users to see the prompt. -->
      <
    param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />
      <!-- 
    Next object tag is for non-IE browsersSo hide it from IE using IECC. -->
      <!--[if !
    IE]>-->
      <
    object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="FLVPlayer_Progressive.swf" width="640" height="360">
        <!--<![endif]-->
        <
    param name="quality" value="high" />
        <
    param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
        <
    param name="scale" value="noscale" />
        <
    param name="salign" value="lt" />
        <
    param name="FlashVars" value="&MM_ComponentVersion=1&skinName=Clear_Skin_1&streamName=beta/images/kriswilson&autoPlay=true&autoRewind=false" />
        <
    param name="swfversion" value="8,0,0,0" />
        <
    param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />
        <!-- 
    The browser displays the following alternative content for users with Flash Player 6.0 and older. -->
        <
    div>
          <
    h4>Content on this page requires a newer version of Adobe Flash Player.</h4>
          <
    p><a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer"><img src="http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif" alt="Get Adobe Flash player" /></a></p>
        </
    div>
        <!--[if !
    IE]>-->
      </
    object>

    I also have an HTML5 video working on some browsers, but not others. Here is the link. The mp4 works but the ogg file doesn't. Is there another website or app that converts it besides firefogg? At least I think that's the problem...I'd much rather use HTML5 if I can.

    I'm hoping someone will help me out on this, it's probably some stupid mistake. Like I said, I'm a beginner. If it matters, I just used dreamweaver's integrated flash video thing, and chose progressive download. Thanks, and sorry for the long post!

    It's supposed to for the redirection, I don't have it redirecting to a real page yet on purpose.

    Did you upload the scripts folder to your webserver. Dreamweaver creates a new folder called Scripts. You need to upload this to make it all work.
