ok, seems I got it now.
I can not ftp to the /store directory for what ever reason..
What seems to works is to create a directory called /videos
I ftp my video to the /video directory
Then I create a item (the video) to sell and put in the full url were that video is stored /home/applianc/public_html/forums/video/test.mov
When I am done creating the item (the video) it renames it and copies it to the /store directory
So now I can remove the video I sent ftp to my /video directory because it's now in the /store directory.
So now what keeps google or others from finding and/or viewing the video I have in the /store directory?
Thanks for putting up with all my silly questions.
