Please bear with me, as I am new to Flash ;-)
I have created a short (6 seconds) SWF movie with Adobe Flash Professional CS5 that I would ultimately like to show in the header of my site (www.martijnboersma.com).
When I double click the SWF file on my desktop it works just fine. When I upload it to my website (or any other SWF host for that matter) and click the absolute URL it does not play (in any browser).
I suspect that the file isn't ready for web publishing. Essentially, during the creation of the SWF file, I did the following:
This results in a stand-alone SWF which works fine when double-clicked on the desktop, but not in any browser once uploaded.
Alternatively, instead of exporting I have tried to publish the file, which doesn't allow for the SWF file to play in a browser either
Any help is much appreciated, and apologies for my n00b questions!
Thanks in advance :-)
Did you try uploading the f4v file along with the swf?
Which options did you choose:
- I used the Import Wizard in Adobe Flash CS5 to import the f4v
And after publishing are you testing locally or from the server:
I have tried to publish the file, which doesn't allow for the SWF file to play in a browser either
The quickest and best way for us to answer to for you to provide a link to the actual Web page... otherwise we are only guessing .... there are just too many variable for us to know for sure.
Thanks for the replies.
It turns out that the export settings were incorrect:
I did not embed the .flv into the .swf whilst exporting.
Now it is working just fine.
