Create database with name porcaroo_blendnik in local MAMP myPhpAdmin
Unpack wordpress-2.8.4.zip and edit config.php
Go to localhost:8888/blendnik/wp-admin/install.php and follow the directions
Install the necessary plugins (FLV and Flash Grand)
Make a couple of posts with an image and a video and text
The php.ini files for MAMP need to have their memory limit upped to something bigger than 8MB, I made it 100MB. The FLAGallery complained then I had to go on a wild goose chase to figure out why.
Used wordpress classic theme
When adding the FLA gallery had to make a custom size for it to look right.
When inserting the pictures and videos it was possible to use
relative paths, eg: wp-content/movies/foo.mov
OK there are problem with .flv files. Stick with QuickTime
Another thing: There was one point where I ran into a problem where phpMyAdmin stoppped working. The way to make it come back was to delete MAMP and MAMP Pro and re-install from the .dmg file, license code=MP-0FA4-5FDC-421D-07800
