I am new to Moodle and trying to embed media files according to what I find in documentation and this forum. I have activated the Media Plugins in administrator->Modules->Activities and checked that the settings are fine.
I am able to embed mp3 files and they stream well. However, when I try to embed flv or mov files it does not work. If I insert the link by choosing spaces, nothing shows, but the browser does indicate for a time that it is transferring data. If I add the link to the media file to text (e.g. "Click here" and set the target to a new window) a new window does open, but instead of seeing the video I see squiggles all over the page. This happens with both mov and flv files. (Both of these play fine outside of Moodle).
I am using Moodle 1.7.1+
Any suggestions will be much appreciated.
