Can't Find Video Player Extension

I'd like to embed a video in my Qlikview document and I've seen several tutorials on how to use an extension to do it (like this one).  However, whenever I follow the link to the extension (like the link to video player on this page) I get a page that looks like this...

Has Qlikview stopped supporting this extension?  Is it common for extensions to disappear like this?  I can't find it anywhere.

Sorry.  Image of the page that I'm directed to for extension download didn't come through.  Trying again...

Re: Can't Find Video Player Extension

That's not the extension I'm looking for.  That download is for a file called WebPageViewer.qar which allows you to bring in YouTube videos.  What I want is VideoPlayer.qar which allows you to bring in locally hosted videos like an mp4.

Re: Can't Find Video Player Extension

Thanks.  That's the file I was looking for, but I can't get it to work.  I can create a VideoPlayer object but I can't pull in a video.  I've tried the default video it points to (http://video-js.zencoder.com/oceans-clip.mp4) and a YouTube video but I can't get either to play.  It just shows an empty window no matter what I do.

Re: Can't Find Video Player Extension

I don't know what changed, but I just tried creating a VideoPlayer object today and it worked.  Try again and see if it works.
