Windows Media Player cannot play the file. The Player might not support the file type or might not support the codec that was used to compress the file.

This means you are trying to play a file that:
1)That has not been compressed correctly
2.)Saved in a format compatible for wmp
3.)has a copyright block

its not copyrite as i made it and it is a wmv file i did not know i was suposed to compress it how do you suggest i compress it? zip or winRAR??

The problem is that the file simply does NOT exist!! if you look at the code you will see that the source is set to be your own computer. For some reason, it will NOT upload the file and it will also NOT save the correct source.

Andy, as i told you, UPLOAD the file using FTP or file manager, and then set the source in the WMP to be the URL of the uploaded file.

This is the only way for a 23 MB (!) file...
