    Flash Video won't Play

    Hey everyone.

    I decided to swap out my flash slide show for a flash movie on my website, but I can't get it to play.

    The flash files are in the same folder as my index, and it does play locally. But when I upload to the server to see it online, I don't get video. If you click the link below, it's a black picture under the menu bar.

    Metal Gear Solid Walkthroughs

    I'm really stumped on this one so any help is appreciated. I'm using DreamWeaver to upload it by the way.

    HTML Code:
    <div id="flash">
          
            <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="720" height="250" id="FlashID" title="Metal Gear Solid">
              <param name="movie" value="something.swf" />
              <param name="quality" value="high" />
              <param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
              <param name="swfversion" value="6.0.65.0" />
              <!-- This param tag prompts users with Flash Player 6.0 r65 and higher to download the latest version of Flash Player. Delete it if you don’t want users to see the prompt. -->
              <param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />
              <!-- Next object tag is for non-IE browsers. So hide it from IE using IECC. -->
              <!--[if !IE]>-->
              <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="something.swf" width="720" height="250">
                <!--<![endif]-->
                <param name="quality" value="high" />
                <param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
                <param name="swfversion" value="6.0.65.0" />
                <param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />
                <!-- The browser displays the following alternative content for users with Flash Player 6.0 and older. -->
                <div>
                  <h4>Content on this page requires a newer version of Adobe Flash Player.</h4>
                  <p><a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer"><img src="http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif" alt="Get Adobe Flash player" width="112" height="33" /></a></p>
                </div>
                <!--[if !IE]>-->
              </object>
              <!--<![endif]-->
            </object>
    
    </div>

    I'm putting my old slideshow up for now so I don't drive my viewers away.

    Probably a path issue. Load the page with an http monitor and watch the 404 for the video file because it's been placed relative to the swf player rather than the html file

    Here is where the file is located. It won't even play: http://mgswalkthroughs.com/Images/Flash/something.swf

    And here's the one I was originally trying to load when I started this thread:
    http://mgswalkthroughs.com/something.swf


    Note that it's not actually that big. Why would the player load and not the video? Hmmm...
