Hi guys,
I'm developing a dynamic web application in Eclipse where the user uploads videos to his folder. The prolems is that I can't see the images once they've been uploaded. I've tried relative urls and absolute urls like:

The paths are correct but I can't see the images on the (external) browser, although I can see my standard site images. Could any one tell me what might be going on?

This is really not an IDE question, more of a servlets question. Moving.

When a video is uploaded, exactly where is the video placed? How does that location relate to the location of your web application? How are you providing the user access to the video via the browser (a direct link via the anchor tag, and indirect link via a request to a servlet)?
