Yup, my suspicions were correct. I couldn't check the source code for my earlier reply as I was driving at the time, but now that I'm in front of a PC I notice that you're calling the SWF file on the SkiMovies.com server (http://www.skimovies.com/videoplayer/mediaplayer.swf
) and the FLV file on J&E Productions (http://www.jandeproductions.com/2008/26JAN08.flv
). I presume that you did that with the FLV BBCode -- that's a custom BBCode I created to embed SkiMovies.com flicks. What you've done, which calls the SWF file on SkiMovies.com and the FLV file on J&E Productions, won't work due to security restrictions within the SWF file -- the video and the SWF file both need to be on the same server.
There's also a new Flash BBCode. I'm still searching for some thorough documentation but from what I can tell it only works with SWF objects and not FLV files. The best reference I can find is the following:
- Code: Select all
Inserts a flash movie into your post.
(Inserts http://url.com/flash.swf into the post)
IIRC WinFF gives you the option of saving the video as an FLV file or SWF. If not there are plenty of other freeware video converters/transcoders that do provide that option, one of which is Super ( http://www.erightsoft.com/SUPER.html

I've got plenty of space on my website if it would help to try placing/installing something there (i.e. some Shockwave Flash stuff), although I suspect that might be something that has to be installed more basally at the level of GoDaddy.
Not at all. JW FLV Player, the SWF file I'm using merely needs to be uploaded to the same webspace as your FLV file, then called within the embed code. It's freeware, and you may find the program download and example embed codes at http://www.jeroenwijering.com/?item=JW_FLV_Player
Another project on my to-do list is to implement a phpBB modification which allows Google Video, YouTube, etc. to be displayed within posts.
