AllVideos is an awesome plugin and I've used it with many Joomla sites. This, however, is my first Joomla 2.5 experience.

There is an issue with a Joomla 2.5 test site where my local or remote videos will not play.  The site is accessible at .  Please also see .

A [youtube] video is added to the home page at the top and plays fine, so the plugin is working.  A local flv (/images/videos/astra.flv) is added below but will not play.  The player is definitely there, but no video.

I originally put the images/videos and images/audio folders in the site via ftp. I removed them and re-inserted with the backend media manager. The problem persisted.

I'm stumped.  Please help.

Relevant scripts are shown below.

All of the JW Player files are showing as 403 Forbidden.
For example:
Result is 403: Forbidden
So no player is embedded because the access to the player files is blocked.

It appears you have some sort of ownership/permissions issue with the player files.
Or it could be some security measure messing with the player files.

Note: I used the Firefox HttpFox extension to see the 403 errors on the player files.

Once you get that fixed, you will need to fix the plug-in configuration.
The embed code shows the file to play as: 'file': '/ar/images/videos/astra.flv',

Add that to the base URL of:
And you will get something like:
That will not work.

The video file is actually here:


Firefox HttpFox extension

The Firefox HttpFox extension is very useful for troubleshooting media player issues.
That is what I used to analyze this issue.

With this tool you can see where the player is actually looking for the media file.
This can point out plug-in configuration issues.
