Can You Play The Video On My Site?


Recommended Posts



Just testing out something on a Joomla based CMS and I posted a video using the AllVideos plugin ( http://www.joomlaworks.gr/content/view/16/39/ ) on my site. I can see a flash video, but when I put in a WMV, video 2 strange things happen when I try to view:

1.) I get asked to download Microsoft Silverlight (never heard of that before for WMV!)

2.) The video does not play


The video is about 16mb, so not so big. I emailed tech and they said this:

It is not something related to the server - but, it is depending on the browser and the system that is accessing. If the system is compatible with the video format and if there is a player it will work normally. The current video is instructing me to install "Microsoft Silverlight" when accessing through firefox (I am sorry, I am on Linux).



The link to test the video is here:



Any ideas why this won't play for me?

From this page:





- Windows Media playback is now done using Silverlight (Microsoft's "Flash" alternative)



Yeah Fotis replied to me saying to download Silverlight and I did, the video still won't play unfortunately. I see they released an update today and I'm going to see if it fixes the issue.


I'll report back with my findings...

It doesn't play for me either on my Mac (and I have silverlight installed).


However, I peeked at the page and it references


but that returns a 404, but I found


exists, so you may just have an improper reference in there.
