I just uploaded my first mp3 to my gallery and I get the "Audio" thumbnail file, but when the page loads with the file embedded, under the embedded player, it says `This is a video, click on the thumbnail to download' - it's obviously not a video, but an audio mp3. It plays fine, it's just this text is being confusingly placed under the player.
How do I change this behaviour and remove the text? I know I can look in the language file, but there is only one entry in it for this and I'm sure it's used in the correct spot, somewhere right? So wouldn't want to change it and then cause confusion elsewhere!
Of note, when I upload a QT .mov file it plays it fine and gives me the "Quicktime Video" thumbnail, but there's no text displayed under the embedded movie file. I would of thought in this case to see the 'This is a video...' text message.
Anyhow, any ideas?

Yeah, I know. But I'm trying to understand why an audio file would have this reference text for video and why a video has no text shown, when it should be getting this same video related text.
Is it something in my configuration that is causing that or is it normal behaviour? If normal, what's the thinking behind it? I ask, as I'll have to explain it to my users when they ask me the same question
Ok, but doesn't seem the cleanest solution, at least with not knowing why it behaves that way.
By the way, there is nothing to click on to download with the player loaded - all you can do is click on the play/stop/pause/fwd/rewind buttons. The thing is not downloadable, but rather just playable as the screenshot above indicates......unless of course, you download it via the Zip n Download link which in this case, is enabled.
Well simply because it has to be there no matter what. Remember you only load players for certain files so what about all the other multimedia files out there that a user may allow? They are offered as a download link only since there is no associated player
Ok, thanks. I understand it's a hard call to make on how you have to cover all bases. I guess I can either turn off embedded players or simply change the language file.
Maybe as a suggestion......can you add a text 'Download' link to the the section which includes "Add to Favorites - Post a Comment" etc......or somewhere relevant. Would be useful, especially if the Zip n Download function is disabled in a configuration.
