Installed the Attachment mod version and do get a box but it just loads and loads never displaying the flv file.

This is in Firefox if that matters.

could you please post a link to your site? so I can check out the error?

@ joeydee:
If you read carefully, you will see:
This Version will NOT work with phpBB2 Modules designed for *Nuke Portals"

So it does work with phpbb2 unless you have it installed in a Nuke portal.
If you have, then I can't help you with the attached flv's, the bbcode flv's should be possible, please ask if you only want that.

you can see a post here where the file doesn't work...and you can see a post here where the same file is embedded using code in bbcode.php which does work.

I can't seem to find the problem, I see you have modified the mod, could you try the default install and see if that works?

Works great....there were a few problems though.

For whatever reason the sql didn't set the cat_id correctly in the db table (set it to 0 on initial install instead of 4)...everything else was done fine.

The sql itself....if you have a group_id of 8 already (as I had) the first half of the sql will run with the second failing due to this. Isn't group_id auto increment and if so, wouldn't you just omit that part? Possibly the same with cat_id? No idea, didn't really dig into it.

FWIW, my issue was that I was trying to load the swf file from the /templates directory instead of forum root....no biggie but the ./blah.swf is important. Tried changing the path but never got it to work...oh well.

Thanks for the mod!! :)

I don't have a live demo, maybe someone else?
the mod attaches the flv-video in a flash-video-player to the message.

so you would be able to restrict certain groups to viewing the content right? because thats just standard phpbb options.

What is the quality like in a FLV player? i was producing in .swf and the quality is phenomenal but the file sizes are too big so i need to change production.

It's realy easy, just click on "new reply" and then you will have the ability of uploading a file as an attachment, click 'Browse' and select your flv. Then hit 'add' and it will be attahced to your post as a viewable video.
You can also use the bb code if the file already is on your server, or on another website.
for this to work, type [flv]http://www.website.com/flvvideo.flv[/flv]

Thats it.
