Can Flash Pro CC publish to flash player 9??

Jun 18, 2013 5:20 AM

Hi

 

It is possible to publish to flash player 9 in Flash CC. Most of the flash ads still require flash player 9 as the highest version to publish for.

 

thanks

 

Andrew

    10.3 is as far back as you can publish unless you add an older playerglobal swc to the publishing options.

    to start, you need to find a version 9 playerglobal.swc.

    add the swc to the default location, Adobe\Adobe Flash CC\Common\Configuration\ActionScript 3.0\FP9\playerglobal.swc

     

    then you need to add an fp9 publishing template.

    you need a publishing template (xml) for fp9 so it shows up in your publish settings target combobox.

     

    here's some info: http://blogs.adobe.com/rgalvan/2011/11/adding-fp11-support-to-flash-pr o-cs5-and-cs5-5.html

    Sorry but why is this not built in? Crappy Flash CC... does Adobe know that major Ad-Servers do not accept SWFs higher than Flashplayer 9? Therefore Flash CC, as it is right now, is useless.

    Hey just went through the stressful experience of building some banners in CC only to realize they couldn't be exported as Flashplayer 9.  I tried then opening them in CS6 but they wouldn't load properly and when published their SWF would be extremely choppy.  Seeing as the client needed the animation quickly I tried everything and found a solution.  Figured I would share it here in case any one else finds them self in my shoes. 

     

    First I would save my files in Flash CC as an .xfl file.  Then in CS6 open the .fla file that was created with the .xfl folder and with out touching anything go to File>Publish Settings and switch the target to Flash Player 9 hit 'OK' then hit CTRL-F12

     

    And success I finally saw my animation playing back without being choppy.  I guess for the time being I will have to stick with CS6 for web banners.  It's a shame since CC performs so well and helps keep file size down a bit...  I would love to add a Flash Player 9 option to CC if possible.

    @kglad i tried that way, flash cc does not work with a fp9 publishing template. Problems with exporting as3 to fp9. So instead of keep fooling us in the wrong direction bring up a complete solution, right you can't...

     

    Flash's main profit scheme is online-marketing, also the only reason why flash still exists (everything else is already replaced). looks like adobe is dumb enough to pull the plug here. Nobody intelligent enough does Websites, Games, Video-Embeding and so on with Flash anymore.

     

    kglad if you want to do a good job for Flash, i mean it honest, then contact someone at adobe to really get the focus on the flash cc publish to fp9 issue. OK?

    Well thats the problem... you don't see it, because you most likely did not a full test. Ad some AS3-code to it and it will fail when you publish it. Looks like alot of Flash CC AS3-Code does not work in FP9. If not, it would be very awesome if you could share your solution here. And correct me if am wrong.

    you're wrong.

     

    i see no problem with actionscript unless i try to use something not available in fp 9 (like the native JSON class that was added with fp 11) which confirms i'm using fp 9 to publish.  so yes, there's alot of code that would work in fp11 that would not work with fp 9.  if you expect anything else, you have some fundamental misunderstanding.

     

    anyway, the solution is the same as i already mentioned, more than once.  here are the file paths on my computer (which are the default paths):

     

    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CC\Common\Configuration\Players\FlashPlayer9_0.xml

    C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Flash CC\Common\Configuration\ActionScript 3.0\FP9\playerglobal.swc

     

    and i attached two files so you don't have to find fp9 playerglobal.swf and you don't need to create a fp 9 xml.

    Thank you kglad for this solution... Looks like my playerglobal.swc was different to yours. So now we only have to bring adobe to the point that they implement it...

    Thanks kglad!! and thanks for attaching the files.  I agree with FUNE Adobe should definitely update CC to have the option of flash player 9.  Since it is the DFA standard at the moment.

    Thanks kglad,

     

    For Mac the file paths are:

    /Applications/Adobe Flash CC/Adobe Flash CC.app/Contents/Common/Configuration/Players/FlashPlayer9_0.xml

    and

    /Applications/Adobe Flash CC/Adobe Flash CC.app/Contents/Common/Configuration/ActionScript 3.0/FP9/playerglobal.swc

     

    To navigate inside "Adobe Flash CC.app" in Finder, you need to right click it and select "Show Package Content".

    Thanks for this.

     

    For others with Macs, the swc file given here did not work for me, I used this one which solved my issues: https://code.google.com/p/flashdevelop/source/browse/trunk/FD3/FlashDe velop/Bin/Debug/Library/AS3/intrinsic/libs/player/9/playerglobal.swc?r =1097

    To anyone on OS X that doesn't want to modify the Adobe Flash CC.app (because you shouldn't), you can drop the files into locations similar to those mentioned by Jarkko (#5652006) in your Library folder:

     

    ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Flash CC/en_US/Configuration/ActionScript 3.0/FP9/playerglobal.swc

    ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Flash CC/en_US/Configuration/Players/FlashPlayer9_0.xml

     

    You locale might be different (mine being "en_US"), and you'll probably have to create the FP9 and Players folders. I used the SWC from Antoine above and everything worked like a charm (#5713272).

    Hey guys,

     

    do you know what's wrong with mine?

     

    I did everything as kglad, Jarkko and Actionscripted instructed, but I end up with somehow corrupted file which is not working properly.

     

    Anyone know what could I do differently?

    Annemari, Have you double checked that the swc file is in correct folder? The message is your screenshot says that playerglobal.swc file was not found.

     

    Maybe you could try adding the swc file to both

    /Applications/Adobe Flash CC/Adobe Flash CC.app/Contents/Common/Configuration/ActionScript 3.0/FP9/playerglobal.swc

    and/or

    ~/Library/Application Support/Adobe/Flash CC/en_US/Configuration/ActionScript 3.0/FP9/playerglobal.swc

    (The Tilde (~) in the beginning of the path means your home directory which is usually Machintosh HD > Users > yourUserName)

    Sorry to harp on the same problem. Just upgraded to CC and finding this problem also. I've read thru everything and I am having the error too. It seems like I need to put the file into this path

     

    /Applications/Adobe Flash CC/Adobe Flash CC.app/Contents/Common/Configuration/ActionScript 3.0/FP9/playerglobal.swc

     

    But the problem is, I don't have this path!! Even when I view all of my hidden folders. I get to Adobe Flash CC.app and its not there.

     

    The error I'm getting in Flash is


    Warning: 5004: The file '/Applications/Adobe Flash CC/Adobe Flash CC.app/Contents/Common/Configuration/ActionScript 3.0/FP9/playerglobal.swc', which is required for typechecking ActionScript 3.0, could not be found. You may need to reinstall Flash.


    Do I really need to reinstall??
