Hi guy's, I am back....

here is where I am:

1) I can upload media files (.wmv/.avi) from silverlight upload module.
2). Files are converted w/ ffMpeg.exe on the server. I see the results.
3). ffMpeg changes my file name to a series of numbers and creates a copy of original w/ same number id.
4) I place a FlashVideoPlayer module on a page, set the movie url to that .flv filename..No Luck

I know the file is there...but still this error??

any ideas on what I could be doing wrong.??

server side mime type??

The version of flowplayer I have is 3.2.5, I also changed that in the player /module settings.
I open all file rights for all pieces involved...

sorry..moment of clarity!!

With IIS 6.0 on Windows 2003, Microsoft doesn't include the proper MIME type for FLVs to play by default. Here's how to add it so that your videos will stream properly.
Click New and enter the following information:

Open the site to configure in IIS. Right click and select "Properties"
Click the HTTP Headers Tab, select "File Types" under the MIME Map section, and then click "New Type". Enter the following:

Associated Extension box: .flv
MIME Type box: flv-application/octet-stream
Click "OK" and close the IIS Properties box
You may need to restart the WWW Publishing Service
That's all there is to it!
