The issue I'm having is loading a flash player to this site
These are the steps I did
This is what I did Insert > Media > SWF
browse local view = ../xml-mp3-player-pi-10-source/pi/pi.swf
the .fla file does not automatically load so i browse in the Dreamweaver properties panel and repeat the same steps
browse local view = ../xml-mp3-player-pi-10-source/pi/pi.fla
next step: I select the FL Edit button in Dreamweaver CS4. Adobe Flash CS4 then opens and I do the following In the properties panel.
I edit the Flash Player from it's original size to Size: 340 x 280 px and edit Stage from #000000 to #CCCCCC
I then press Ctrl+S to update to Dreamweaver
next step: in Dreamweaver I update and change the original width & height to Width: 340 and Height: 280 to meet the changes I made in Flash.
I then press play in attempt to preview the player and the background where the player is supposed to be turns to solid #CCCCCC
At this point I am thinking it's a properties assignment issue cause I can't even get the player to play in local view using the Live View option in Dreamweaver which is set to: Use Local Files For Document Links
I uploaded the html file anyways hoping that Dreamweaver assigns all the files needed to run the player for me but the result I get is this http://artofsounddj.com/weddingexample.html
I also noticed that Dreamweaver made a Scripts folder for me aswell with two files inside named: expressInstall.swf and swfobject_modified.js
Do I put these files into the same folder as local view = ../xml-mp3-player-pi-10-source/pi or do they go into the ROOT directory?
The original file is named "xml-mp3-player-pi-10-source.zip" Inside this folder are folders named "myspace_protected_pi" myspace_unprotected_pi" "pi" "pi-flashvars" "pi-widget" "pi-widget-source" which are pretty much different versions of this flash player for myspace etc. Being that I don't plan to use the player for no other site but my website I only sent the folder named "pi" to my root directory being that every folder has pretty much the same things in them. Could it be that I have to send the entire "xml-mp3-player-pi-10-source" folder to my ROOT directory?
My ROOT directory looks as follows:
< ROOT/ pi <-- ie "pi" is folder with all the flash player files >
< inside "pi" folder = folders & files named as follows in order >
< folder name "_notes" >< inside folder name "_notes" = file >
< folder name "caurina" >< inside folder name "caurina" = folder name "transitions" >
< inside folder name "transitions" = files named >
< folder name "font" >
< inside folder name "font" = files named >
< folder name "pi_player_assets" >
< inside folder name "pi_player_assets" = files named >
example.jpg (files x10)
example.mp3 (files x10)
< the files below are not in individual folders >
