I'm dragging the Flash SWF icon onto my page and uploading the chosen file but it won't play on my site. Note; The original file isn't corrupt because it plays fine on my computer off line.

The reason that your FLV will not play in the SWF widget is that it is not a SWF file.

To play your FLV try this thread I started for doing so here: http://forum.yola.com/yola/topics/how...

Alternatively, you can use Zamzar to convert your FLV to a SWF here: http://zamzar.com/url/

Happy site building

Hello,

You can also follow these steps to add an flv file to your site:

1. Upload your file to your File Manger.
2. Locate the URL of your file. (e.g. http://yourdomain.yolasite.com/resour....
3. Please go to freevideocoding.com and select the media you want to post.
4. Enter your Media file location (the URL of your file).
5. Select "Embed the Player".
6. Click on "Make HTML" button.
7. Highlight and copy the code provided.
8. Drag and drop an HTML Widget, paste the code, and click "Save".

You should see your video working. Please note that there is a buffering period - the speed of this is dependent on the speed of your internet's server.

Good Luck!
