Maybe you have some special characters or empty spaces in the names of your files?
The only thing I notice is that InDesign created another folder called, "beyondmagazine_Resources."
That folder has my .flv file (movie clip). So the only things I uploaded are beyondmagazinel.html, beyondmagazine.swf and
the folder "beyondmagazine_Resources." When I open the .html on my desktop, everything is perfect! It's just after uploading to
the internet that my video will not play. I do see the cursor turning into a hand...indicating that the button I created to start the
movie, is actually working. The video just turns white, as though it has disappeared. Please help. I would like to dazzle my client
with this sample, but I just need to get that video working. Thanks. Eric
What´s the name of your flv?
You may also try to open your flv directly form server, there may be some user right issues...I have seen that some FTP client softwares has troubles to give proper user rigths for subfolders....
And if you have Safari web-browser, use it for testing. After you have opened your magazine and gone to that spread where your video suppose to be, open Window>Activity report dialog and check if there´s some files missing (they are marked with red color)
I did what you suggested and I noticed that
from the Window/Active report, the file is missing. I even tried just
viewing the movie.flv and it still cannot be found. I even placed the move.flv
outside of a subfolder and uploaded it and my browser still could not find it.
Do you think it is my FTP software? I've never worked with a .flv file before.
If I take a video clip off my phone and convert it to a .flv file and upload that will I still experience problems?
What can I do to correct any user rights?
THANK YOU!!! That was definitely the cause of my frustration! I am glad you mentioned Drop Box, as well.
I was able to set up an account there, until my host provider and support .flv files. Thanks again for you help.
