    Well in Windows XP, using IE7 anyway, the steps to get into the Temp Internet Files folder are (from the browser menu)
    Tools
    Internet Options
    Browsing History, Settings
    View Files
    this will open the folder and you should see all the files. Deleting them all, then closing the folder and viewing new Web sites and videos should put a whole bunch of files back in there. Go through the steps above again and you should see them, if not, it must be the wrong folder. If you found the files once, they will be there again. Once you get to the correct folder, take note of the address in the address bar and copy that into Notepad or something so you can find that folder again. Then close everything out, follow the path that was in the address bar until you find that folder again. Right click and create a shortcut that you can put on your desktop or someplace handy. That makes it much quicker to check into your temp folder for urls or downloaded stuff.

    actually, im using Firefox currently

    hmm, i managed to get to the proper temporary internet files, and i can also see the URL's!

    however, the megavideo url's dont seem to work on my player

    all my other videos show up, but not my megavideo video

    do you know of a player i could use that will support a playlist with megavideo videos as well?

    thanks again for replying!

    So other URLs work but not one like this from megavideo?
    Code:
    url="http://www215.megavideo.com/files/df4230573893414f26f42cb7965810ff/"

    Looks like your player is using some other relationship to the URL. How about this..will this work for you as a <location>?

    nope

    that did not work either

    which leads me to believe that the problem is the video player rather than the URL.
    i think the JW Media player is not compatible with Megavideo for some reason

    im trying to find another player that might work.. but no luck so far

    What I'm finding is that the <location> is not the same as the <url>.
    I'm guessing a little here but it seems that the <location> returns a whole lot of stuff while the <url> returns the address to the video file.
    Try this... clean out all files from your Temp Internet. Then copy this into the address bar of your browser.
    http://www215.megavideo.com/files/df...42cb7965810ff/
    You will be asked to Save or Open. This is the URL to the actual file, you can download the actual file.
    Then try this, using a <location> from your code, copy and paste it directly into your address bar.
    http://www.youtube.com/v/DlewcIRJvbY
    Be sure you have emptied out your cache first so you see exactly what you get with this <location>
    There's a whole lot of stuff besides the video URL.
    I'm guessing that with the sheer volumn of videos they deal with it's impossible to use video1, video2, etc. and so they are using a DB and scripting to access the videos, which expresses itself as that long drawn out url you see in YouTube (actual video URL) and megavideo. This may include the current placement on the html page... and notice it's also given an expiration time, meaning that this may work for a while put will it work after the expiration date?
    The player I am using uses actual video URLs, not the <location>.
    Now I really have no idea if this has made things more complicated and confusing or not... not sure where to go from here.

    hello

    sorry about that delay in reply

    hmm, well i had actually found one player that could play megavideo playlists, however when i asked someone else to view the page, the playlist did not work for them

    the next day when i checked the playlist, it did not work at all

    so now i guess im back to trying to find a proper play that could play megavideo playlists

    is the player you are using available on the net to download by any chance? or was it personally created by you?

    thanks alot for the reply and immediate help!

    I'll attach a player that you can try out. It has both a Welcome screen xml message and a xml playlist.
    I went back and plugged in the Megavideo address that originally worked only to find that it didnít work any more. Apparently they switch the locations around as new videos or more poplar ones come in. The player works fine but the actual url is no longer valid.
    Play with this player to see if you can use something like this. This is a custom creation to illustrate the type of work I do. If the actionscript works for you, then you can create your own or have a custom one designed for you.
    Good luck
