    alvanh Level 1


      I publish my first flash site Here http://90plan.ovh.net/~lollypop/Trackone_records//deploy-to-web/index.html

      They have some mistakes but I have everything. sound etc..


      Here the same site:   http://90plan.ovh.net/~lollypop/Trackone_records/Intro_2.html           This time embed in html file with this code:



      <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=10,0,0,0" width="1024" height="768" title="Main.swf">
      <param name="movie" value="http://90plan.ovh.net/~lollypop/Trackone_records/deploy-to-web/Main.swf">
      <param name="quality" value="high"><param name="LOOP" value="false">
      <embed src="http://90plan.ovh.net/~lollypop/Trackone_records/deploy-to-web/Main.swf" width="1024" height="768" loop="false" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"></embed>

          Hi Alex,


          It looks like the second folder is missing an .mp3 file that your .swf is referencing.  Like most HTML pages, your Catalyst projects reference assets using a relative path or link -- so if you move (or copy) the .swf, you must also move any video/audio files that it refers to so it can still find them.


          (The way I figured this out, btw, is to run your site with the "debugger" version of Flash Player installed in my browser.  This brings up a message box whenever your .swf encounters an error.  This doesn't help diagnose every problem you might run into, but it was useful in this case).


          Hope that helps,


          - Peter
