Can anyone figure out why I can't get this video xml Sitemap to be accepted by Google Webmaster Tools? I edited out some of the optional fields and am now down to the basics... and it still gets the red X:
If the code isn't accepted on this post (TOS?) I would be more than happy to provide it for inspection... thanks :-)

CODE:

- <urlset xmlns="http://www.sitemaps.org/schemas/sitemap/0.9" xmlns:video="http://www.google.com/schemas/sitemap-video/1.0">
- <url>
<loc>http://www.example.com/product/widget.html</loc>
- <video:video>
<video:content_loc>http://www.example.com/product/widget.flv</video:content_loc>
<video:player_loc allow_embed="Yes">www.example.com/product/player.swf</video:player_loc>
<video:thumbnail_loc>http://www.example.com/product/image/wideget1.jpg</video:thumbnail_loc>
<video:title>Widget</video:title>
