Thanks for some great software it really is superb.
One small problem is that i have uploaded an mp3 file but the play button does not show just download and get code.
I have clicked the enable flv and mp3 options.
Any ideas would be appreciated.
I have a similar problem, but mine is primarily with flv files (mp3 is playing for me). In settings, I have clicked to enable both the mp3 and the flv flash video players. Mime types are in place for both.
--- All mp3 files show with the Play, and Get Code buttons (but, not the Download button... should that be showing?). Clicking Play, launches the player and the mp3 plays.
--- The flv files show with only Download and Get Code buttons (there is no way to Play).
---- Here is my list of Multimedia mime types:
What could I be overlooking?
The files are you trying to play have the extension '.flv'?
When you look at the url of the file you are clicking, does it have flv= in the string?
And finally, what mime types are actually being assigned to the uploads?
1. Yes, they do have the extension .flv
2. Well, I am not actually clicking the url of the flv file... instead, I am looking for a "Play" button to appear (as it does now for the mp3). Instead, for the .flv files, I see a "Download" button. If I click that "Download" button, it starts to download the flv file. Answering the question, I think you are asking, if I place the cursor over that Download button, no it does not show flv=, but instead it shows:
I explain my experimentations with that further in the discussion below.
3. Here are the extensions assigned to the uploads: .gif,.jpg,.pdf,.zip,.doc,.txt,.rtf,.png,.bmp,.mp3,.flv,.mp4
In the admin area there is no place to assign mime types to "uploads," but instead the sections are: "viewable" and "downloadable" and "multimedia." The flv mime type is only in the multimedia section.
If I place the cursor over the Play button (which appears when viewing lists of mp3 files) and then right click and copy the link, it gives this url format:
If I place the cursor over the Download button (which appears when viewing lists of flv files) and right click and copy the link, it gives this url format:
Then for testing, I took the above copied link for the flv, but changed it to this (just changed the word "download" to "flv"):
Then I pasted that changed url (as above) into my browser, immediately it launched the flash player and the video played perfectly.
What is also noteworthy is that the display of files shows the following:
I have blocked out my domain name only because I don't wish it public yet... but I will give you (David) the link (and full site access) via email, if it would help you to analyze better. Notice that for the flv it shows the type as: application/octet-stream.
Perhaps, the the program is not interpreting an flv correctly as a media file, but instead as an application/octet-stream .

If you want me to have a look, send a small donation and your FTP details via e-mail and I`ll see what I can do.
For certain, I am pleased to make another donation.... as I said at the time that I made a donation last month, "I am very happy to contribute some funds for your excellent work and plan to do more in the future."
Your work is wonderful (and the support you provide for your products is excellent). Everyone should be helping with contributions to enable you to continue.
