    Help! trying to get Flowplayer to play a .FLV on mysite, need help with HTML

    Hey, Can anyone help me, I am trying to get a Demo Reel Up online. and I dont know much about HTML. I am using Flowplayer to play my .FLV video.

    I posted here because I wasnt sure were to post my question.

    Flowplayer has some guides, but to me it makes no sense.

    http://flowplayer.org/documentation/scripting.html


    I can get the player to appear on my webpage with this code.....

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="FlowPlayer.swf"
    width="320" height="263" id="FlowPlayer">
    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain"/>
    <param name="movie" value="FlowPlayer.swf"/>
    <param name="quality" value="high"/>
    <param name="scale" value="noScale"/>
    <param name="wmode" value="transparent"/>
    <param name="flashvars"
    value="videoFile=mymovie.flv"/>
    </object>



    what would I add to get this scripting to play my video? When I click on play nothing happens right now.

    So when I add this script right now to my page, I can see the player but when I press play nothing happens.



    Any help as soon as possible would be greatly appreciated thanks in advance.

    I completely agree their guides need an example, they really need to show how to structure the 3 parts they include in first Installation Page...

    So still trying to get flowplayer going...

    Code:
    <!-- player container. display:block not needed--> 
    <div style="width:425px;height:300px;" id="player"></div> 
     
    <!-- this script block will install Flowplayer inside previous DIV tag --> 
    <script language="JavaScript"> 
        flowplayer( 
            "player",  
            "FlowPlayer.swf",  
            "mymovie.flv" 
        ); 
    </script>
    see if this works.
