Problem with a xspf playlist using plesk7.5 for windows

    hi gang

    having a real problem with this so any help would be most appreciated, I have been consulting forums and have found people with similar problems but none of the suggestions fix my problem

    have been updating my site and attempted to include a flash media player
    from sourceforge.net.
    I have followed the instructions for use
    have created a .swf file that is the core of the player and placed it in a
    subdirectory of my site where all the mp3s are( .../mp3/)
    I then created a playlist file with the extension .xspf as instructed, this
    holds all the links to the mp3s that i want to play with full url paths
    I then intergrated the html code for the player into the index.php page file

    that i want the player on, and that should combine the player + playlist to
    create a fully functional player

    but, despite my best efforts the player shows on the page but cannot find
    the playlist, despite me triple-checking it has the correct url filepath
    I am total stumpted as to what the problem is and would appreciate any help
    you could provide.
    I wondered if it had anything to do with the file type on that server or
    something like that
    because the player is constantly saying "loading playlist" but never does it

    does the same if there's no playlist file there at all I've included the
    code for the player swf file the html bit and for the playlist file just in
    case you spot any errors there.

    cheers mate



    main player .swf file code [located in the .../mp3/ directory too]

    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
    width="400" height="168" >
    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain"/>
    <param name="movie"
    <param name="quality" value="high"/>
    <param name="bgcolor" value="#E6E6E6"/>
    quality="high" bgcolor="#E6E6E6" name="xspf_player"
    align="center" height="168" width="400"> </embed>

    the html bit that goes on the page index.php file

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="400" height="170"
    <param name="movie"

    and the .xspf playlist file code

    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
    <playlist version="0" xmlns = "http://xspf.org/ns/0/">
    <title>Jazzvalve Music</title>

    it seems that you should configure mime type

    cheers for the reply Glis
    thats certainly put me onto a new line of enquiry

    so as i gather that could mean that that extension is not recognized asa valid MIME type, is that just on my computer or the server?

    I gather also that this is fixable, but what Im still unclear about is how, do I have to use the IIS Manager in my windows XP to remedy it or is there some code I could add to the page where the player is or to the offending Playlist .xspf file?

    as you can see Im a bit new to it, and need help!!! as a Monkey I have fingers and thumbs its just the constant distractions the keep my eyes from the prize!!
