    HTML & Director 11

    bluejays86
      Hi, I am new to Director. I have been told that I need to add the following tag to my movie to update my movie to SW 11. Where do I go in Director to put this html code? Thanks for any help, Brian.

      <object classid="clsid:233C1507-6A77-46A4-9443-F871F945D258"
      codebase=" http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/director/sw.cab#version=11,0,0,0"
      ID=b width=320 height=240 VIEWASTEXT>
      <param name=src value="a.dcr">
      <param name=swRemote value="swSaveEnabled='true' swVolume='true' swRestart='true' swPausePlay='true' swFastForward='true' swContextMenu='true' ">
      <param name=swStretchStyle value=none>
      <param name=PlayerVersion value=11>
      <PARAM NAME=bgColor VALUE=#000000>
      <embed src="a.dcr" bgColor=#000000 width=600 height=400 swRemote="swSaveEnabled='true' swVolume='true' swRestart='true' swPausePlay='true' swFastForward='true' swContextMenu='true' " swStretchStyle=none
      type="application/x-director" PlayerVersion=11 pluginspage=" http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/"></embed>
      </object>

          It does not go anywhere inside director. It is the HTML for the page
          that displays the dcr (shockwave) movie. When you publish the movie in
          Director, you can check the HTML box (in Publish Settings) for HTML and
          it will make a HTML file similar to this. Since you have your own, you
          would not need to do that... just substitute this HTML for the one that
          Director builds for you.

            Hi Brian,

            I have a tutorial on publishing to Shockwave at:
            http://www.deansdirectortutorials.com/publishing/shockwave.htm

            It explains the settings in Director and some of the HTML code.

            regards

              I am concerned because I am trying to force Shockwave to read Audio Xtra 6.1. My ".dir" used 6.1 but my ".dcr" uses 6.0. I have the following alert in my movie script which shows the version:

              alert (string(axGetVersion())).

              When I found the hmtl it already had the player version set to 11. Any thought how I can force shockwave to use version 6.1 of the audio xtra? The following is the current html in my ".dcr".

              <html>
              <head>
              <title>vocabularyArt</title>
              <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=UTF-8">

                The version of the xtra that you use in a dcr has exactly nothing to do
                with the HTML code that calls the dcr. If your Director authoring
                environment uses the newest version when you publish the projector, then
                the newest version should be used in the dcr.

                If that has already been done, then it is possible that the repository
                you point to in the xtrainfo.txt is serving up an old version. In which
                case, make sure it points to an updated version.
