If you don't know how to open a text file and search and edit a line, I don't think I can help you anything.

I cannot teach you how to edit a file line by line, since this will mislead issue to nowhere ... sorry :(

thanks for the help regardless.

I'm getting the same error. Since I find the installation instructions kind of vague, I've

1) uploaded the zip contents to \extensions\wikiFlvPlayer
2) added include_once('extensions/wikiFlvPlayer/wikiFlvPlayer.php'); to LocalSettings.php
3) added $MW_FLV_LOGO = ""; to LocalSettings.php
4) uploaded a video file to the web server (different \video directory)
5) added <wikiflv width="450" height="270" >http://n44vf.velocityxl.com/videos/n44vf/trenaman_kids.flv</wikiflv> to a mediawiki page

and I get the same error "Video not found: images/9/9f/trenaman_kids.flv"

You need to add video files through mediawiki file upload, not ftp.

Does the default video work after you installed?

Yep, that's all it was, thanks. I'd used another player before (I like yours better, BTW) which allowed ftp'ed files also, will this ever be a feaure of your player/configuration?

Use ftp is simple to make, I think you can do it as well if you know basic programming.

Yea, yea I could, but the reason I'm using mediawiki for this particular site is I don't want to spend time programming it. Thanks for the help, I'll keep using dhflashplayer.

Hi,

I have the same issue;

// $playerID = mt_rand(); //

I made this into a string.

$playerID = "xxx" ;

But still I get the same error.

:(

Then I guess the video file cannot be found.

Does the player play the default video?
