I've got a flash movie set up online that isn't working
properly. The details are this: the movie has two frames, the first
being a blank loading frame meant to keep anything from being
displayed till the variables are delivered by my PHP script, and
the second being the frame with the actual movie content.
The actionscript I use on the first frame is as follows:
"txt. . .secure bit is the location of my PHP script that
delivers the necessary variables. I know that the PHP side of
things is working because the flash program DOES load all the
variables in exactly as I want it to. The problem I am having is
that when played, the program stops indefinitely on frame 1. I have
to right-click and force the program to play before it flickers
past frame 2 (the content) and back to the loading frame, where it
then loads the variables and plays like it's supposed to.
You can play the flash movie at
http://images4u.com/thumbs_i4u.php?play=EBfig298x.swf As I described above, it remains blank indefinitely, so you
will need to force it to play to see what I'm talking about.
I'd appreciate any help you guys can give to get the movie
playing automatically as it should.
The first time flash attempts to do the loading, there
appears to be a 301 redirect from images4u.com to www.images4u.com
for the requested text data.
This then appears to sent... but then flash requests a
crossdomain.xml file from www.images4u.com and it receives none
(404 not found).
At that point I assume that the LoadVars onLoad does not
The second time around it requests it from the
www.images4u.com domain and there is no problem - it doesn't seem
to need a crossdomain.xml permission.
So the problem is with the redirect. I don't know exactly the
solution. I would guess either make the request from flash to
www.images4u.com/etcetera or put a crossdomain.xml at your sites
root covering both www.images4u.com and images4u.com in terms of
