    Configuring Amazon CloudFront Streaming Using Flowplayer

    This is my first time using Amazon CloudFront to stream a video. I have followed their tutorial at: http://aws.amazon.com/articles/4112, but something is not right, as you will see at: http://lifepurposeandmoney.com/blend-yoursecret-sauce/.

    1. There are three black boxes instead of the one video displaying a splash page.
    2. Clicking on one of these boxes produces the error message "The address was not understood." No wonder, as the address is mp4:Blend-Your-Secret-Sauce, yet this is how the tutorial said to configure it.
    HTML Code:
    <a class="rtmp" href="mp4:YOUR_VIDEO_FILE_WITHOUT_EXTENSION">
    I imagine there really needs to be more to the address, like
    http://s3.amazonaws.com/YOUR_BUCKET/
    but this is not specified in the tutorial.

    3. The splash page is not displayed.

    I will appreciate help.

    Hm, your code is quite badly messed up there, with <p>s and <br>s in the middle of your scripts and

    Code:
    </BODY><br />
    </HTML><br />
    in the middle of your page. Those errors cuold be causing things to fail, but also there is something wrong with the links provided. For example, this link is broken:

    http://s3.amazonaws.com/life-purpose...cret-Sauce.jpg

    So you need to sort out the right URLs first. Are those dashes and underscores right? They look odd. And should the words in the URLs be capitals? These are the sorts of things to be asking.
