that seems like a little bit of a roundabout way of doing this, why not try http://docs.moodle.org/22/en/Media_Player or, if you are in a commerical environment and don't want to shell out for a license, the html5 video tag?
I just set this up on our page (moodle 2.2) and it is a very easy, future-proof method.
1 go to the page you want the video to be on and use the "moodle Media" button (on the formatting toolbar, next to the emoticon button) to upload the video file (not the .lnk file but the video file itself, you may need to use something like miro video converter to make it an mp4 or ogg video first for compatibility reasons).
2 this will put a link on the page (something like http://your.server/moodle/draftfile.php/#/user/draft/#######/video.ogv)
3 click the HTML button (on the formatting toolbar, next to the spellcheck button) to bring up the HTML Editor.
4 in the editor your link will show up like <a href="http://your.server/moodle/draftfile.php/#/user/draft/#######/video.ogv"></a>. Before the start of the <a href=... copy in the following <video><source src=> and after the </a> copy in </video>
5 copy just the url of the video from the <a> tag and paste it in between '<source src=' and '>'
6 you should now have something that looks like this -
<video><source src="http://your.server/moodle/draftfile.php/#/user/draft/#######/video.ogv"><a href="http://your.server/moodle/draftfile.php/#/user/draft/#######/video.ogv></a></video>
When the user gets to the page, one of two things will happen. If they have a compatible browser they will see a box on the page with basic controls like play, pause, etc. They can play the video in their browser much like they would a youtube or TED.com video. The immediate upside here is that they do not need macromedia flash, java or anything other than their browser to accomplish this, meaning that the video can be played without any nasty, user-experience breaking prompts to install plugins. They do not have to have windows media player, quicktime or whatever other media application on their computer either.
If they do not have a compatible browser (Internet explorer pre version 9 is a good example, and encompasses a good 34% of the internet last I saw) they will just see the link to the video file itself, allowing them to download and play it on their computer if they have the relevant media player.
A few addendums to this -
Depending on what browser your userbase is on, you may want to vary what format you use. because half of our userbase is on IE and the other half on firefox, we actually include two <source> tags, the result being that the browser displays whichever video it is compatible with. Wikipedia has some very useful info on what browsers support what and what else you can do with the tag, including removing the controls, setting it to autoplay when loaded or setting it to loop. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HTML5_video
I mentioned miro video converter. There's lots out there and I haven't been using it long enough to give a serious endorsement either way, but it's worked so far for me (being open source and free was enough to convince me) http://www.mirovideoconverter.com/
if I skimmed over anything or explained it badly, let me know. Moodle is still very much a mystery to me, so I have to come to these forums often searching for help, but HTML is something I am far more familiar with, so I jump at the chance to be on this side of the helping equation for once :D.
