Hi. I have a small website under construction. I am trying to add my all time favorite movies by streaming them. I am trying to get the same effect as at http://watch-movies.net. I have combed the web over and have not come to any clear way of doing this.
My website is: http://bwgarman.com Click on Movies, then "Oh brother where art thou?". The player pops up and says it is transffering the data, and at one point you can press the play button, but nothing happens. I sat for nearly an hour waiting for it to play. My goal is to have the movie play while it is downloading, like at watch-movies.net. (By the way I have this question into them, but they haven't yet responded. I'm hoping someone here will).

My code is as follows:

<div align="center"><object id="MediaPlayer1" CLASSID="CLSID:22d6f312-b0f6-11d0-94ab-0080c74c7e95" codebase="http://activex.microsoft.com/activex/controls/mplayer/en/nsmp2inf.cab#Version=5,1,52,701"
standby="Loading Microsoft Windows® Media Player components..." type="application/x-oleobject" width="280" height="256">
<param name="fileName" value="obwat1.flv">
<param name="animationatStart" value="true">
<param name="transparentatStart" value="true">
<param name="autoStart" value="true">
<param name="showControls" value="true">
<param name="Volume" value="-450">
<embed type="application/x-mplayer2" pluginspage="http://www.microsoft.com/Windows/MediaPlayer/" src="obwat1.flv" name="MediaPlayer1" width=280 height=256 autostart=1 showcontrols=1 volume=-450>
</object></div>

Please help if you can.

Thank you!
Brenton

Not 100% certain yet, but I think your problem is that you are trying to stream a 324MB FLV (flash video file) in a Windows Media Player component, and I seriously doubt that's going to work. I'm downloading your FLV now, but it's huge and ETA is at the moment 36 minutes until arrival. I'll get back with you with an alternative. Basically the gist is you have to stream an FLV in a Flash FLV player component.

Thanks for your quick reply. You are right about the size of the .flv file...it came from a 1.2gig .avi file.

Now I Know I am supposed to play the movie in a Flash FLV player component and have done what I thought was just that. I put FlashPlayer.swf, I have tried player.swf and even tried to call video.exe.

I was told by different places to download these flv players and then put these particular "components?" in my directory and upload via ftp to my website.

Does this help you to help me?

Thanks agin for your reply.

Well first of all your code is a problem because you are embedding Windows Media Player and that won't play FLV's. You need to be embedding Flash. But beyond that, it's not just the code, I think your FLV is actually messed up. I can't even import it into flash to use the playback component.

I'm curious what you used to convert the AVI to FLV because really a 1 GB AVI should compress much smaller than 324MB.

Brenton, but I can't see any movie out there on your website. I wonder you are editing your site.
As I know, Flash CS3 can create a swf player with your flash work, but that swf player can't control the playback of flash videos. I think you may search softpedia to find some flash video player with control bar, you can also find some good video converters on softpedia.
Hope it can help you.
