I wonder if someone could help me solve a little .html addressing problem ?
I run a site for French speakers learning to to listen to English. Up to now I have offered .avi and .srt files to download and play on local PC
Now, with Flash Professional I can also offer Flash video with subtitles to watch in the browser.
I can code everything up, upload to server, embed the necessary code in an html page and it runs fine - but only as long as all the files are in the same folder
Here's a link so you can see what I'm doing
However, this only works if I have all the files in the same folder on the server. Unfortunately, when I designed the site, I decided to keep all the pages of this type in the same folder - so the .flv. swf and related files are not in the same folder as the html that calls them.
I thought I could get around this by putting an absolute address in the html, as
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="368" height="312" id="Frys_Planet_Word" align="middle">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.regardez-des-videos-en-anglais.org/December2011/FLV/Fry/Frys_Planet_Word.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
<param name="play" value="true" />
<param name="loop" value="true" />
<param name="wmode" value="window" />
<param name="scale" value="showall" />
<param name="menu" value="true" />
<param name="devicefont" value="false" />
<param name="salign" value="" />
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" />
... but no luck... My problem is that although I can change the folder structure for new additions, retrofitting Flash Video to existing clips is going to be a nightmare if I have to swap everything round
I am a linguist not a programmer, so would be very grateful for the expertise of the wise owls on this forum
