Flash Panel Problem in CMS

Hi all,

I'm able to upload my .flv files just fine, but when I try to insert the movie in the page, the Flash panel that appears on the right doesn't recognize the .flv file, and nothing shows up. I'm sure I'm in the right folder.

Any ideas?

I really need help with this. I'm passing this Silverstripe site onto a client and they may want to insert flash movies later on, and they don't know how to insert flash content in the html code.

Any ideas would be really appreciated. Is anyone else having this problem? Is there another forum already covering this problem?

there's a youtubeservice module that can display videos by a specific tag/user on a separate page:

recently i've added BBCode support, so you can add videos straight into your content textfield (e.g. [youtubevideo]yourid[/youtubevideo]). this currently works only in entries of the blog module, but with a bit of customization you can make it work on any content field.
