According to Flowplayer 3.2 it can play .avi, .wmv, .mp4 and .mov. At the moment MovieMacro uses an older version of Flowplayer. It should be as simple as upgrading the player files in the macro.

On the other hand, .avi and mp4 (maybe even .wmv) are container formats and video playback of the video is determined by the availability of the embedded video/audio codecs.

When I get time, I'll see if I can get Flowplayer 3.2 working.

I implemented flowplayer 3.2.2 but the other file formats didn't work. I decided not to upload the latest version of the code since there is nothing to gain from it. If you want a copy of the code let me know then I can upload it somewhere.

Alternatively I would recommend you use ffmpeg and convert your videos to .flv for online display purposes.
