    WPMU 2.6.2. It says something like "Unsupported file type" or something like that. Max. upload size is not a problem. I've checked that already.

    Allowed Upload File Types: jpg jpeg png gif mp3 flv mov avi wmv midi mid pdf swf

    I have no problem with uploading swf files.

    Some limitation of your hoster?

    Doubt it. It is (mt) but I'll check anyway.

    hey,

    I had the same issue.

    The flv MIME type is missing in wp-includes/functions.php but the swf one is present that's why you can upload swf files but not flv.

    Adding
    'flv' => 'video/x-flv',
    in the function wp_check_filetype should fix this.

    If it's still not working, meaning it's a server side problem, you can add
    AddType video/x-flv .flv
    in your .htaccess.

    hey,guy
    as i know, the flv is the main format on the web-video,maybe u need to upload it again.
    in addition,i got a free wondershare video to flash encoder from http://www.giveaway of the day.com few days ago and it can convert video to flv/swf,maybe u can check out it on its offical website. good luck !

    Why I am using WPMU 2.8.3 and this bug is still not fixed?
