    Flash CS5 Publish Preview not working

    kisanbhat Level 1

      I am working on Flash CS5 Professional. I have created a simple fla file but not able to Publish->preview the swf file in Google Chrome.

      When I click on Publish Preview it opens a new browser window but nothing happens.What am I doing wrong?

          When you test the movie, FLash shows you the SWF within Flash itself. Can you see it there? As far as viewing in Google Chromse (or any browser), are you publishing an HTML page along with the SWF file? If you can't view it in your browser, check to see which version of Flash Player you have installed (of any at all) in Chrome. Do you see it play in any other browser you might have on your computer?

            Yes I can see the SWF playing inside flash. I have the lastest version installed on Chrome, IE and FF which is WIN 10,2,154,12. I can see other swf playing.

            I just checked again and found out that after couple of reloading of the HTML page displays the swf. BTW I have default Publish Settings.

             

            Thanks for your help.

              Is this issue only when viewing a Flash-create HTML page locally (on your computer)? Can you see other Flash content in your browser when you are online?

                This issue is only when viewing a Flash-create HTML page locally on my computer. I can view others, when I am online.

                  I'm having the same issue. Flash runs fine in Chrome, except for when I choose File->Publish Preview->Default - HTML in Flash CS5. When I try to Publish Preview, Chrome, my default browser, opens a new tab that is blank. Repeatedly pressing Refresh doesn't do anything for me (it still loads a blank page).

                   

                  I just played with it a bit. I think I've got it figured out.

                   

                  Flash CS5 loads Chrome with the file address in the address bar, but it doesn't Go. If I copy the address, open a new tab, right-click in the address bar and choose "Paste and go", the Flash file loads. Going back to the original tab (the one opened by Flash when I selected Publish Preview, I pressed Enter in the address bar and the Flash file loaded.

                    Great. It worked man. Thanks a ton for mailing me a solution.

                    It worked by pasting the URL in the new Chrome Window.

                    Is this a bug? I hope someone in Adobe is listening.

                     

                    I was trying this for several weeks and was so frustrated and then I gave up.

                    You gave me a perfect solution to my problem.

                     

                    Thanks again.
