    Movie not loaded




      I have a problem with hosting a .swf file.

      I used to have a CS5.5 version of it which worked fine.
      I recently compiled a flash project with Flash Pro CS6, and since then when I try to load it in my website it gives me a blank screen with that "Movie not loaded" problem.
      When I open it locally it works.
      When I open it in the browser with the HTML wrapper it works.
      When I drag and drop it to the browser it works.

      But when I try to access it from my site it doesn't.


      I tried to delete my cache, cookies related to the site, compile it as debug version, go to the Flash player settings advanced tab and "delete all...".

      Nothing worked.


      I use Apache 2.2 if it matters.


      If you need anymore info to troubleshoot this problem please let me know.


      Help will be appreciated.

          Look for classes that got an update between 5.5/6 or were moved to different packages.

          If your main.as was compiled with flash CS5.5 and the loaded one with 6,

          if there are conflicting class definitions, the parent`s one will be used, thus causing the loaded one not to function as expected.

            Provide a link to the online implementation so that file locations versus html pathing can be checked.

              Ok I fixed it.
              It was a problem with the Apache server.
              I restricted access to subfolders, and it seems that it blocked the new .swf for some reason.


              I fixed it like this (httpd-vhosts.conf):

              <Directory path>

                   AllowOverride AuthConfig Indexes

                   Order deny,allow

                   Deny from all

                   Allow from

                   <Files "*.swf">

                        Allow from all



              Though it's weird it only happened after I switched to the new file, because I didn't have to do this with the old build.
              Any idea why it happens?
