I'm trying to evaluate the software and having issues with embedding media into the wiki.
I'm running confluence CentOS and testing on Mac OS X/Safari browser. For the mp4 format, I get a question mark when I add attachment (using instructions found on http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Embedding+Multimedia+Content).

I would appreciate any pointers or ideas.
