I have a small web app (using vb.net/asp.net) that I have created a control with an oject and I show a short video. The video is a .mov file. When I run the page on my local testing machine, it works just fine. When I move the files to the server and test it, the movie just won't play. There are no errors on the page or anything, the movie just won't play. I know the path to the video is correct. When I click play, it says 'Opening Media' for 1 or 2 seconds and then it goes back to the ready state. I'm wondering why it works locally but not on the server. Does the server need a media player?
Here's my control:
<object id="<%= ClientID %>_Player" classid="CLSID:6BF52A52-394A-11d3-B153-00C04F79FAA6" width="<%= Me.Width %>" height="<%= Me.Height %>" style="margin:0px auto; z-index:10000">
<param name="URL" value="<%= me.VideoUrl %>" />
<param name="autoStart" value="false" />
<param name="uimode" value="Full" />
<%--<param name="autoplay" value="True" />--%>
<embed id="<%= ClientID %>_Embed" type="application/x-mplayer2"
