I was given an f4v file to add to a page. I have posted plenty of flvs on the site and figured it would be no problem. I added f4v as a mime type in IIS and restarted IIS. I verified that all the files involved (the player, the movie, the user control) were in the locations specified in the object code. I got nothing on the page. I copied an flv into the same location as the f4v and THAT worked. What might be going on? I did try changing the version to 9,0,115,0 as I read somewhere that was the first supported version for f4v, but that didn't work either. Here is the code:
<object classid = "clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0" width="320" height="240" id = "FLVPlayer">
<param name="movie" value="/about/flvplayer_progressive.swf" />
<param name="salign" value="lt" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="scale" value="noscale" />
<param name="FlashVars" value="&MM_ComponentVersion=1&skinName=/about/user_control&streamName=/somedir/somesubdir/anothersubdir/media/moviename&autoPlay=false&autoRewind=false" />
<embed src = "/about/flvplayer_progressive.swf" flashvars="&MM_ComponentVersion=1&skinName=/about/user_control&streamName=/somedir/somesubdir/anothersubdir/media/chemlab&autoPlay=true&autoRewind=false" quality="high" scale="noscale" width="320" height="240" name="FLVPlayer" salign="LT" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
