    Hi All,

    I have setup atutor at the office for internal training purposes.
    However after settingup courses and uploading files (tried both mp4 and flv files) , when logging in as a user(student) and want to view a file, it tries to download the files instead of playing it in the browser.

    We have enabled the flowplayer plugin but no changes whatsoever.

    How can we get the plugin to play the videos instead of downloading it?

    The help would be greatly appreciated.

    This may be a server configuration issue. I would suggest you talk to your system administrator.

    See the handbook regarding the [media] tag.
