    Box Around Flash Movie

    Cloudbrk Level 1
      On my flash movies when I post them to the web, there is a box around the movie and then it says "Click to Activate and Use the Control". Why is it doing this and how can I get it to stop?

          I'm guessing your using IE. If yes then the problem is a result of a recent update pushed out by Microsoft. The fix is very easy, put the object and embed tags inside a document.write call in an external javascript file. Check here for the Adobe Active content fix and more explaination in the changes in IE

              For more comprehensive information with several solutions (some much easier
              to implement) see http://activecontent.blogspot.com

              (and the hundreds of posts already in this forum that you must have failed
              to search for before asking the same question that's been addressed so many
              times already)

                my 1st reaction is that these posts are just a funny joke - since about every 8th post is on this
                exact topic nowadays
                My newsreader is actually downloading them as the same thread because they share the same subject
                line - usually that happens with subects like "HELP!" or "URGENT!" lol
