    Flash won't load in Mozilla/NS 7

    Hi all

    I don't write any flash myself, however the following site (one I've used a lot in the past) will not load in Mozilla and apparently not in NS7.

    http://www.levelsix.ca/

    Doing a search on the topic, I've found that it may be either the javascript calling the flash or the MIME settings on the server. My knowledge of javascript is rudimentary but it looks okay from some other samples I've seen.

    I'm a flash-know-nothing, but would like to help provide these chaps with a solution if possible (the kayaking community is pretty tight).

    Any comments would be appreciated.

    Cheers

    Hi,
    yep i just tested in nn7 and indeed no luck.
    There are two possible problems here. Firstly, and this is the most likely, is that a <div> has been used to position. <div> is interpretted differently in different browsers, though i cant see why this would be a problem in mozilla / gecko browsers, it may be the cause (esp when combined with flash).

    the other possibility is that there is something missing from the embed flash bit, but i didnt notice anything..

    anyway, there isnt any specific problem in these browsers with flash, just checked my site again, and it works ok.

    so my suggestions are:
    1)position the flash with tables rather than <div>. If poss you should always do this cos they are much more backward compatible.
    2)if this fails, use the embed and object stuff directly from the flash publish command, or use this (from my site, http://www.luminate.org.uk/)

    Code:
    <OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
     codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0"
     WIDTH="698" HEIGHT="400" ALIGN="">
            <PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="withscripting.swf">
            
            <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#999999>
            <EMBED src="withscripting.swf" bgcolor=#999999  WIDTH="698" HEIGHT="400" ALIGN=""
     TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></EMBED> 
     </OBJECT>
    though i think the div might be the prob here..
    hope this helps
