because one of my swf-files works with source code, I suspect that your swf file is corrupted or not properly converted or created, because even this does not work: http://delormdesigns.com/Oxen2008/Oxen2008Fair.swf
So I will suggest, try to import another swf-file from which you know that it works.
Thank you Hans-Gunter. That was the issue. I thought I was creating the swf properly since it worked on my hard drive, however, something must be up. Perhaps another question for the Flash forum!
you are very welcome! ... and excuse me that I can't resist, did you "try to import another swf-file from which you know that it works"? And, of course, your thougts to look for the Flash forum is also a very good idea, I know, there you will find really experts for your subject.
Yes, I did exactly what you recommended. I swapped the swf with another, loaded the page, and tested it. It worked perfectly. So, even though the original swf worked fine during the preview test, there must be something about the file that does not work when loaded on the site.
I found an article about creating and inserting a flv file from an avi...that will get me 1/2 way there so I will be trying that. Perhaps there was a step in the avi to flv process that needs fixing...and then the swf creation would work.
I appreciate your responses!
thnks for your flowers!... and please come back to say us whether you are on the right track now.
