MP4 (mp4v&mp4a) file playing audio only
I'm having problems playing an mp4 file, using the mp4v and mp4a codecs. The URL to the file does not end in the file extension (it has a set of security parameters following it) but I'm used the flashvar "type=video". I can successfully play FLV1 encoded files with a .mp4 filename extension, from the same location, also using security parameters. I've also tried the flashvar "type=mp4", although I am using JW FLV Player 4.2.90. I've tried giving the problematic file a .mov or .flv extension, to no avail. The same file will successfully play using VLC media player, regardless of the extension. This leads me to conclude there must be a compatibility problem between the JW FLV Player and the mp4v codec.
I'm currently uploading the file to the nonsecure location http://bitcast-a.v1.o1.sjc1.bitgravity.com/planetstream/gph08ep2.mp4, it should be available 10 minutes from now. (approx 2008/12/03 05:20am GMT), so if anyone has success playing this using the JW FLV player, please let me know, including what parameters you used to play it. (be warned, the file is approx 270MB in size)
