I'm developing using VS 2005 Professional and running UVG using the built in ASP.Net Development Web Server. I get the error "This file can't be converted to Mpg movie" when attempting to upload .wmv files.

I understand that this issue and error has been discussed here:

But no clear solution was offered.

I installed the Binaries as described in the manual and used UVG Converter to convert to .flv video format.

I have two issues:

1. How can I run the UVG_AddVideo module in my development environment?

2. For many reasons, I would prefer not to use UVG Converter. Can you please reply with what I need to ask my hosting provider to make UVG work without UVG Converter? I understand he has to enable external processes on the server but I need more details.

If you are sure you installed the binary pack properly, then the most possible reason is external process is not enabled, to confirm this you can tell me the url of your FirstRun module.

In some situation this solutions works:
in your web.config, add this line:
<add key="DirectShellExecution" value="true" />
to appSettings section.

If it doesn't work, then you must contact your hosting service provider to grant appropriate permissions, however, if they already disabled this, I think they will not agree to give you this permission.
