Just a little help request for a problem that I'm not sure if
it originates within Flash or with Dreamweaver's code.
I have a swf that needs to load data from an XML file. This
swf works fine when I test it on its own, loading the XML data, and
displaying everything properly. It also works fine if I navigate to
it directly (that is, typing the whole path to the swf into a
browser - the swf opens on its own, loads the XML data, and works).
However, when I put it into either my testing server (Windows
Apache 2.2 with PHP 5 enabled), or on the web server (same, but
Linux), and try to load the file from its place embedded in the web
page, it doesn't work.
Unfortunately, I'm not all that experienced at coding HTML,
so I do not know if the problem is that I'm using the code that
Dreamweaver CS3 places when I choose to embed a Flash object rather
than the code that Flash CS3 puts out when I click to publish (yes,
I'm using CS3 with AS2). Could it even be a PHP configuration issue
that doesn't let the swf file load the XML due to some security
setting? I have not touched the PHP.ini settings (yup, I'm a PHP
You should really be looking at the html file that gets
published with your Flash movie - not the swf. The html file is the
true window into published Flash movies as it's what all servers
So try looking at your Flash movie thru the html file - not
Also, if possible, avoid using Dreamweaver to publish pages
with Flash objects in them. Dreamweaver writes a whole bunch of
extraneous code that's really not needed. Use the html page that
gets published with your swf file from Flash.
