Hi Paolo, I'm not quite sure why the .swf does not show up in the attachment list, because it seems to be there...

But you will not want to upload the .html file if you want to make the video display directly inside of the message, instead you need to take the contents of that HTML file and paste that HTML code directly into the message editor window for your forum post.

For example if you open up seat.swf.html in notepad, you will see some HTML code. There is one line in there that starts with <EMBED> - copy that line and paste it directly into your message body, same as the text that you normally type in for a message (rather than as an attachment).

So for example in this case enter this text:

<EMBED src="http://moi3d.com/forum/get_attachment.php?webtag=MOI&hash=c040804e58f460551bf19b7673467a68&filename=seat.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#ffffff WIDTH="605" HEIGHT="595" NAME="seat.swf" ALIGN="" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer">

But the only problem is that these flash videos can be rather large in size, and there is a limit of like 50MB for each person to upload attachments to the forum. If you do several videos you will pretty quickly fill up your entire allotment so you may need to upload them to some other video service instead.

Anyway, if you enter that text above into your message, it should make the flash player show up directly inside of your message post, like this:
