Apache Web server - Playing files locally
« on: December 05, 2011, 05:39:45 AM »
I installed the apache sever from: http://httpd.apache.org/download.cgi

In the URL I entered http://127.0.0.1/nameoffline.flv

Nothing plays... I just get a white frame

When I enter the URL from my computer  into IE  (http://10.10.x.x/nameoffline.flv) I get prompted to save the file to my computer.

Not sure what I am missing to get the file to play.

I found my issue with  playback... when I etup the scene I choose HTML.... Once I setup the External Video using the phyiscal IP of the machine and not the local host (127.0.0.1) it played the file back.
