Hi all,

I've getting a small problem with my new website, for some reason the html page fails to load the Flash movie for both ie and firefox. When i test it on the desktop it seems to be working fine, but not on the server! Whats wrong and what am i doing wrong? Do you think its a Flash problem or an html problem? Please let me know! Im really confused. Thanx for your help!

Heres the link

Smile, you're in good hands :) I like the template, btw.

It loads for me in FF3 but not IE. I never liked the way that Dreamweaver exported code for Flash, but its definately the code. You seem to have commented out the AC_RunActiveContent.js javascript file?

Read the post in my signature about Embedding Flash Properly for another method.

Again, look at my post about embedding flash properly, and you should be good to go if you follow it.

Well I'm telling you that you need to drop what you have, and use my example, and without seeing the whole HTML page I can't be sure if you are using that AC_.....js file which I have trouble with often.

You are missing the ac_runactivecontent.js file in this page, its not in the <head>

I would start with copying what I have written in that post (download and make sure SWFObject is in the head), and change the references to your SWF. You have ?button=2 at the end, might try to remove that and see if that helps. Is it needed? You should send that using SWFObject.
