    OSX 10.5.2 and AR8.1.2 playing swf files

    James Quirk
      After applying the latest Apple updates to OSX 10.5.2 I find that I can no longer play
      swf files from within a PDF file. I'm using AR8.1.2 with FP9,0,115,0 . Consider
      the example:


      It contains an /Annot "Click to activate SWF!" that is supposed
      to play the swf, but when I click it: a progress bar "buffering" appears
      in the bottom right corner of the screen and then hangs. The swf file
      is included as an attachment, shock-tube.swf, which can be
      opened in an external viewer and so I don't think the swf file
      is the problem.

      I have the same problem with the PDF available at:


      where the swf is embedded using Acrobat,
      rather than my homebrew approach.

      I would very grateful if anyone could shed light
      on this problem.
