OK, I've been doing Director a LONG time. This should be an
easy thing. Yet I'm stumped. I usually do application development
and haven't played with Shockwave in a while so that could explain
All I'm trying to do is play Real Media files in Shockwave.
I've read that there are some problems with working with Real on
OSX - and I've experienced this, so I'm doing the dev on WinXP. So,
I imported a Real video file. It plays fine in Director. I publish
it in Shockwave and all I get is the Real logo. It won't play. I
have included the RealMedia Xtra in the movie settings and have
selected "Download if needed" and "Include in projector". I added a
button to play the movie - sprite(1).play() - nothing.
So then, just for kicks, I decided to try a QuickTime file. I
ended up getting the same results (I even tried the same test with
different files in OSX and still no go).
So, somebody please tell me what stupid switch I forgot to
flip to allow me to watch video files from a Shockwave movie.
Currently all of this testing has just been on my hard drive, so it
has nothing to do with bandwidth or anything.
