    lost my skin!

      Hello helping hands. When I add a skin to a movie in flash and set poster frame, then test movie, all appears fine. Then I export it, then import it onto my Dw page. When I test in browser, the skin does not show up, just a white ugly border. Seems I've lost my skin along the way. I tried to import the skin into my folder, but still does not show up. I can still play the movie because I added an arrow on screen with action script, but where the heck is my control skin? Bah! Please help, hair going grey-er.

          Did you upload the swf and all other supporting files to server?

            I found that when I put the skin in the same directory as my page file, it shows up, but now there is a moving green grey zebra bar where the load progress bar is and the movie doesn't play at all.

              Did you upload the flv file to server and is it also in the same folder as
              your page and swf?

                Thanks for confirming, Nancy. That seemed to be one problem, then when it was fixed, it plays fine in my browser from checking in Dw, then when I upload synched files to server, I play it on a webpage and it doesn't play at all again. The posterframe and skin show up though! A green dashed bar moves along where the load progress bar is. You can see it for awhile if I haven't figured it out at my website. Thanks.

                  I started all over and it is fixed. Unknown bug. Must have made a mis step in creating the poster frame. Thanks for the help.
