Set up your php.ini
* Recommended Settings for php.ini:
* Recommended Settings for .htaccess file:
o php_value post_max_size 100M
o php_value upload_max_filesize 100M
o php_value max_execution_time 1000

Download a Media Player
I have had success with:
Set up a Cron Task
Once again, find a geek and pay in beer
Create a Content Template
Content Construction Kit (CCK)
Create your Page
Go to Administer->Site Configuration->FlashVideo Settings
Select the link that says FlashVideo Settings for this node type
next to the Page node type.
Once you are in there, you will want to check the box that says:
Enable the FlashVideo for this node type.
And thats it!
Well, that was easy....let's see it in action!
