    Does the html page code for the flash element include anything in the way of "AC_FL_RunContent"?  If so you also need to upload the AC_RunActiveContent.js file to the server.

    The first part of the link you show (up to "swf") does display a file.  I don't know what the extra url is doing there though.


    Can you show the code you use in the html page for inserting the Flash piece?

    You just need to upload the AC....js file to the server where you have the Flash and html files loaded.

    If you right click on the html page in internet explorer and select view source, you will see the html code for the page.  You have a problem with the page code.  The flash code is cut in half by the end of the html end of page code.  You need to clean that all up.  Most every html page ends with </body></html>, but for whatever reason, you have it in the middle of the code for the Flash.

    If I look at your page's source code, this is what I see:


    <html xmlns="" xml:lang="es" lang="es">
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
    <script language="javascript">AC_FL_RunContent = 0;</script>
    <script src="AC_RunActiveContent.js" language="javascript"></script>
    <body bgcolor="#ffffff">
    <!--URL utilizadas en la película-->
    <!--Texto utilizado en la película-->
    <!-- saved from url=(0013)about:internet -->
    <script language="javascript">
    if (AC_FL_RunContent == 0) {
      alert("Esta página requiere el archivo AC_RunActiveContent.js. En Flash, seleccione \"Aplicar actualización de contenido activo\" en el menú Comandos para copiar el archivo AC_RunActiveContent.js en la carpeta de salida HTML.");
    } else {
       'codebase', ' rsion=8,0,0,0',
       'width', '550',
       'height', '400',
       'src', 'prueba',
       'quality', 'high',
       'pluginspage', 'http://www.macromedia.cob#version=8,0,0,0" width="550" height="400" id="prueba" align="middle">
    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
    <param name="movie" value="prueba.swf" /><param name="quality" value="high" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" /> <embed src="prueba.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="550" height="400" name="prueba" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="" />
       'align', 'middle',
       'play', 'true',
       'loop', 'true',
       'scale', 'showall',
       'wmode', 'window',
       'devicefont', 'false',
       'id', 'prueba',
       'bgcolor', '#ffffff',
       'name', 'prueba',
       'menu', 'true',
       'movie', 'prueba',
       'salign', ''
       ); //end AC code
    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="



    As you can see, it is not properly coded, with most of the noscript section being inserted into the middle of the script section.  Yesterday I saw the neding html tags sitting in the middle as well, but today they aren't even present.  IF this isn't how the page you uploaded looks, I don't think this is a Flash issue, but a server issue.  You may want to clear your cache to make sure you are looking at fresh content.


    As far as the AC_RunActiveContent.js end of things goes, you don't have to do anything except upload that file to the server to the same folder as the html file.

    While I've not experimented with it, chances are if you remove the <script></script> section of the Flash code entirely, and then remove just the <noscript> and </noscript> tags from the rest of it, leabing essentially the same code as your older files use, it would play fine.  I believe the whole javascript thing was to resolve a security issue that Microsoft didn't want to fix otherwise for IE.

    You're welcome.  It looks like it's time for them to invest in some new equipment.

    I'm also having the "Movie not loaded..." issue so I read this thread carefully. Couldn't quite follow it all but....



    I created a simple Flex application and can run it just fine in the development environment.


    However, if I move the swf and all its related files upto a server and try to run it from there, I too get the "Movie not loaded..." message even though I've be able to do this many times before.


    The default html page generated by the Flex envrionment does reference "AC_FL_RunContent" as you asked.



    So you state we also need to upload a javascript file named: AC_RunActiveContent.js


    However, this file is not in the default folder bin-release created by the Flex compiler. However there is another javascript file named: AC_OETags.js


    The AC_OETags.js contains a function named "AC_FL_RunContent".


    So I am puzzled by your answer...



    Are you saying we should now be using AC_RunActiveContent.js instead of AC_OETags.js ?

    I can't answer for what Flex creates/requires because I am unfamiliar with it.  You could try posting in the Flex forum and see what help can be offered there.


    Is the AC_OETags.js file specified as a file in your html page code head section?  If so, that may be all you need if it contains the run content function.


    I'll try to attach a copy of the AC_RunActiveContent.js file to this posting.  If it uploads, then you can see if it works for you for lack of anything else.

    I fought this very same issue - in the end found that used other ftp connection settings helps


    I found that I had transfer settings for that domain set to text files, for some files it was ok even for flash so first I did not notice, but then I found and set to automatic or binary for swf, the file started to work like magic ;-)
