# Local File Playback

Reported by: Owned by: anonymous lcordier normal MovieMacro normal 0.11

### Description

I couldn't get local file playback working as documented. I made the following changes to get it working:

(Forgive my ignorance in making diffs, pushing changes, and whatnot; the change is pretty small anyway)

/movie/Macro.py, ln. 40:

return '/' + '/'.join(parts)


... to ...

return '/'.join(parts)


Then you can reference the local file using the following syntax:

[[Movie(htdocs:/site/filename.flv)]]


Please take a look at this; if my changes are correct (they work for me!), then you should update your docs page & code.

It doesn't make sense, the function generates an absolute URL, one that starts with a '/'.
If you remove the first slash it is not an absolute URL anymore.
It works for me as is. When I get time, I'll add some debugging code to the macro, then we can test what is going on.

After installing this on trac 0.11.3 i had the same problem, and this solution fixed it for me.

Works for me too. I can confirm that it creates a path with chrome for the jwplayer and other assets.
