    FLV Video is not playing in Firefox browser; however, it plays fine in IE

    I have a wordpress blog and a "jw player" plugin.
    I'm trying to self host a video because I don't want to embed a youtube video.
    I want my video to automatically start and not have a link to any other site (like youtube).

    My video plays in Internet explorer, but it doesn't show up in FF Firefox.
    My website is commercerising.com

    In my post, my html code is the following.....

    <script type='text/javascript' src='jwplayer.js'></script>

    <div id='mediaspace'>This text will be replaced</div>

    <script type='text/javascript'>
    'flashplayer': 'player.swf',
    'file': 'http://commercerising.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/09/Jake-SizingTest-File1.flv',
    'controlbar': 'none',
    'autostart': 'true',
    'width': '480',
    'height': '270'

    Please help! Thanks!
    p.s.- if you have another recommended wordpress plugin or another solution, I'm happy to hear it. My goal is to have the video play and not be clickable to another site like youtube. I don't want comments or "likes" or "dislikes". I think my best option is to self host the video....and my goal is to have it play on ever browser including FIREFOX and CHROME and others. Thanks again.

    make sure you have latest version on jwplayer and all of its files are uploaded properly.

    The problem was that when i uplaoded the files in my root, i uploaded a folder called "jwplayer". Then from that folder, I moved my ".js" and my ".swf" files into my root.
    I went back and copied the ".swf" and ".js" into my original "jwplayer" folder. Now they are in both the root and the "jwplayer" folder, and it's working on Firefox now also.
