Hello Patrick

Yes, you may be quite right that the problem is an incorrect URL. This is what you must carefully check when you enter your URL on the site of freevideocoding:
  • The URL of your video is http://tombrown.co.uk/resources/Myvideo.flvReplace "Myvideo.flv" by the name and the file extension of your video file.

  • The URL depends on where exactly you saved your video file within your Yola File Manager. If you put your video into another folder, e.g. a folder called "Videos", in your File Manager, you must add this information to your URL: http://tombrown.co.uk/resources/Videos/Myvideo.flv
  • Please note the exact spelling of your file and folder names! If your folder name is spelt with a capital "v" for "Videos", you must add it with a capital "v" to your URL. The same goes for the file name and the file extension. If you don't spell it the exact same way, the freevideocoding player on your website will not be able to play your video.

Please let me know if you still struggle to add your video.
