I made a flash website, and I wanted to have a song playing on application start. It worked when I exported locally, but when I uploaded it into a host (Deviantart.com) the audio was gone.
I tried making a button and direct-linking to an mp3, but that always resulted in a new page opening up.
I even converted the mp3 into an flv and made a play/pause button, but the problem still occurred.
Is there a way to add the song?
Have to ask the simple question first, did you upload the file? Is the file still there, or did the web host remove it? If you have Firebug installed in Firebox, or use some other web debug tool, you can see if there is a file path error.
Hope this might solve it,
I just think that flash catalyst doesn't intergrate the mp3 into swf, like Flash normally does. . . If that's the problem, then I'm going to have to import a swf file into the flash catalyst project that already has the song attached to a play/pause button.
Flash Catalyst keeps it's media files external for faster load times.
