    opening website flash video link also opens download dialog window

    I moved a website I didn't build to Godaddy hosting by downloading all the files by FTP, then uploading them to the new hosting location.  This website has a lot of short flash videos (.flv) for instruction and demonstration, and many (but not all) of the links disappeared in the transfer process.  Editing the pages to replace the links seemed to be straightforward, but when the revised pages were uploaded, I found that clicking on any of these new links would open the video, but also open that dialog window asking if you want open or save the file (with the heading "opening .flv"). Tested the same on four different computers.  The video links that survived the transfer intact do not do this.  Any suggestions for eliminating this behavior?
