You might need to adjust your apache configuration; the file is being sent as 'text/plain'.

My host said the foll to me when i asked them about streaming flv's

Quote
With bluehost you will have to use the progressive download option. It is one of the availible options when you insert and display an FLV file in your HTML documents using the Flash Video component. You will also have to add a mime type either with the mime type icon or via the htaccess file, the htaccess file will have this code when complete "AddType video/x-flv .flv", which it sounds like you've already done.
 
1. Progressive Download Video:
If you choose this video type, the video is downloaded to the user's hard drive, but starts playing the video before it finishes downloading. The video is downloaded from beginning to end, unless the user closes the connection before the download is complete. The user must have Flash Player 6 r65 (or greater) installed to see videos encoded with Sorensen Spark (included with Flash MX Professional 2004 and its standalone encoder). The user must have Flash Player 8 installed to see videos encoded with the On2 codec. For more information on which versions of Flash Player work with the different video codecs, search “on2 VP6 video codec�(with quotes) in Macromedia Flash 8 Help (F1).
 
Note: The FLV video included with the article source files uses the Sorenson Spark codec, and can be viewed with Flash Player 6 r65 or greater.
 
2. Streaming Video: If you choose this option, the video starts playing after a short buffer period, when a small amount of data downloads to the computer to ensure smooth playback. You must have Macromedia Flash Media Server available if you select this option. The user must have Flash Player 6 (or greater) installed to see your video, assuming it uses the Sorenson Spark codec. This option will not work with bluehost as we do not have Flash Media Servers.

any advice?

thnx..

Add the mime type into the .htaccess file as suggested.

I had already added flv to the mime types in .htaccess file.
i think there is sum issue with the player, since as i said earlier whn i try to view the flv's in windows media player it works fins,except when trying to move away from that page the browser freezes and crashes.

If you're talking about this mod here - http://forum.coppermine-gallery.net/index.php/topic,43180.0.html

then, as Joachim pointed out, you failed to modify theme.php according to the instructions. The flv Player will not work with the basic Flash ActiveX code. Follow those instructions exactly and the player will work, I assure you.

Note: It would've been better to post your support request in that thread.

If a particular section doesn't exist in your custom theme, copy it from themes/sample/theme.php, as suggested in the docs: http://coppermine-gallery.net/demo/cpg14x/docs/index.htm#theme_sample

No, that's wrong: the file include/themes.inc.php contains the defaults that you should keep untouched. Instead, do as I suggested and only copy the stuff you need to see changed from themes/sample/theme.php. Do not copy from include/themes.inc.php. Do not modify include/themes.inc.php
