    Default cannot get streaming video to play

    made a simple 22 MB (2.5 min) WMV file
    (set to stream for 100-500 kps connections)
    it will not play (in local publish)
    used standard plug-ins . . . tried windows media player and real video and
    quick time player
    after publishing, I see the console - but the play buttons are grayed out
    I made up-loading the site now
    topgun.com/ghost
    should be up by 9:30 pm tonight

    Are you actually using V8 or V9? You posted in the V9 group (no problem) but
    your code says V8. I'm trying to emulate the problem but need to know which
    version of NOF you're using.

    Ok - I downloaded your original video and reprocessed it creating a 1mb file
    and a 2.5mb wmv file. The smaller one is loaded on the home page at
    www.1ahost.co.uk/ghosttest/ and the slightly larger one is on the converted
    better page. They both play ok for me but the original still doesn't. From
    that I would deduce that you have a problem at the start of your file and by
    reprocessing it, it overcame the problem.

    I'll let you take it from there.
