I made a flash banner to my friend so he could upload it on his site.
The flash banner on top loads in Mac OS X in every browser I try. On Windows though it works only on Firefox & Internet Explorer Beta 9. I disabled the firewall
to see if that helped, but no result.
There’s an inconsistency issue. At my workplace it works as it should.
It’s also important to note that other .swf files on the net plays fine, so it’s only this particular site.
What do you think?
Since you are using the old, outdated <object><embed> method, you normally use a classID with the object, like this:
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0" width="550" height="400">
along with the correct path to the file name... (you are using a fake filename in the object)
But a better method is to skip the <embed> entirely and use this updated version of <object>
<object data="http://www.gwarg.dk/images/GWG2.swf" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="550" height="400">
<param name="movie" value="http://www.gwarg.dk/images/GWG2.swf">
<param name="quality" value="high" />
You can change the path to relative paths instead of absolute if you like.
