SWF Help

Hello Jason/Team,

I have converted a FLV Movie into a SWF file and when I uploaded it to PS4 the flash did not work, not sure why.

however, I opened up a new blank html and the files works fine with the code, and the files in the my root.

Now i am trying to insert the code into the content area using admin user panel.

Here is the code; however, I am having difficulty in trying to figure out how to make the code reference my .swf and the skin .swf file.

Can you assist me with this ? and/or what am i doing wrong ?

code:

<object id="FlashID" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="550" height="305">
<param name="movie" value="LXH2.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
<param name="swfversion" value="6.0.65.0" />
<!-- This param tag prompts users with Flash Player 6.0 r65 and higher to download the latest version of Flash Player. Delete it if you don’t want users to see the prompt. -->
<param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />
<!-- Next object tag is for non-IE browsers. So hide it from IE using IECC. -->
<!--[if !IE]>-->
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="LXH2.swf" width="550" height="305">
<!--<![endif]-->
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
<param name="swfversion" value="6.0.65.0" />
<param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />
<!-- The browser displays the following alternative content for users with Flash Player 6.0 and older. -->
<div>
<h4>Content on this page requires a newer version of Adobe Flash Player.</h4>
<p><a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer"><img src="http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif" alt="Get Adobe Flash player" width="112" height="33" /></a></p>
</div>
<!--[if !IE]>-->
</object>
<!--<![endif]-->
</object>
<script type="text/javascript">
<!--
swfobject.registerObject("FlashID");
//-->
</script>

can you send a link to the page where the flash file is working and a link to the page where it is not working for comparison?

Will Do... I appreciate the help Jason.

The only way that I can get it to work is to make what is called an embedded video swf, which does not allow me to apply a skin for control purposes and the synchronization of the video and sound does not match which is what adobe said would happen for lengthy movies using the embedded feature of uploading a movie into flash and then creating a swf.

The other reason I am trying to upload the code, is I am not sure how the separate skin file is reference so the swf using the skin file for user controls. Is that file suppose to be uploaded into the same directory/folder..i.e. imagesupload/cms_files, which is not the preferred method.

page.php?News=1

Here is the code for the embedded type swf file were I referenced the file:

<p style="text-align: center;"><embed width="482" height="319" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="/imagesupload/cms_files/Its Time Embdded.swf" scale="showall" play="true" loop="false" menu="true" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></embed></p>


page.php?News=5

Code for News=5

<p><embed menu="true" loop="true" play="true" src="/imagesupload/cms_files/LXH2(1).swf" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed></p>

Also, note that this is for Flash 8 and up to 10 version.

Not sure if your go get flash player link may not be pulling a the higher version player ???

your code:
<param name="movie" value="LXH2.swf" />



and:
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="LXH2.swf" width="550" height="305">


is a relative link to the swf file.


it is looking for the swf file at:
LXH2.swf

but it does not exist there.


you will need to edit the path to properly point to the swf file.

I tried this orignally, but had no luck... tell me if this is correct way to write the path:

your code:

<param name="movie" value="/imagesupload/cms_files/LXH2.swf" />


and:

<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="/imagesupload/cms_files/LXH2.swf" width="550" height="305">

well it definitely wont work if the file reference is not corrected.

you have not updated the code on the
page.php?News=5

page, so i really cant troubleshoot any further. all i can say with the code on that page is that it is not linking to the swf file correctly.
