    ok so I have uploaded the mpg file into images/stories folder.

    Now when i insert movie file in article i put in the following.

    type Windows Media

    File/url movie.mpg

    dimensions 300 x 300

    saved the details and saved the article. The article loads with the media player but the file still wont load.

    The JomlaWorks guys at JoomlaWorks | The Joomla! & Mambo Professionals make some ace plugins... one of them is used to embed videos. You can even embed vids of YouTube, Google Videos, Yahoo Videos, etc. with simple tags.

    I've tried out inserting .flv and .wmv files on my local test setup and they both work fine.

    These (as well as quicktime) are the most common file formats used for streaming so I'd try converting your .mpg to one of them.

    IF you want .flv - i recommend using Riva Video Encoder.

    regards
