    HELP! Embedding Flash with Dreamweaver CS4

    chilversj
      Hello i'm have issues with CS4 embedding Flash FLV's.
      It won't show up when it's on the server but it's working locally.
      i've uploaded all the files in the scripts folder and the swf skin files.
      But it still won't work server-side.
      I did not have this issue with dreamweaver CS3 as i've found that Dreameaver CS4 seems to
      change how the code of how the .FLV is embedded

      any ideas??
      or is anyone else having this issue?
      thanks
      Jordan

      here's is my current test page link with a sample flv video:
      http://www.lambethdesktop.com/flashtest/index.html

      i've also attached the code of the html page it has been embedded in.

          This script appears to be missing (or uploaded to the wrong folder)

              I found out that I had a "scripts" folder locally that I hadn't put on the server yet. Once I did that, everything worked fine. Hope that helps.

                I have a similiar trouble, ie7 just visualizate one "flash movie"; in the declaration script:
                <script type="text/javascript">
                <!--
                swfobject.registerObject("FlashID2");
                swfobject.registerObject("FlashID");
                //-->
                </script>
                when the two flash movies is declarated, no one visualizated, but, when i comment one, another one is visualizated.

                then the problem is in the "swfobject_modified.js", but where and how.

                and the trouble is in the new adobe dreamweaver cs4;

                Ideas, please.
