If I want to use Flash Player on my site; do I have to upload Flash to my Host? Or what.
Playing Flash files is the responsibility of the browser--meaning, clients download and install Flash Player as a plugin for their browser of choice: IE, FF, Safari, etc, so their browser can interpret *.swf (Flash format) files.
If you would like to display a Flash file in your webpage, you use the <object> HTML tag to link to a *.swf (Flash) file much in the same way you would an image.
Creating Flash files is a skillset unto itself, and requires Adobe's proprietary Flash software.
Give us a link to the page with the flash on it. Its possible the flash player in your browser is outdated or the path to the flash file is wrong or you've put it on your site incorrectly.
Did you upload your swf files to the flash directory on the site? Your flash button should be called button.swf.
You can tell my ignorance from this question I expect. Perhaps you have some reference that I can look up. Thanks for your help.
Zip up your files and upload them here.
I don't see how its working on your computer but not on your site unless as stated you haven't uploaded all of your files. Do you see ANY swf files?
What I meant by zipping up your files (likely didn't know what I meant) was to put all the files you are working with in an archive (.zip) and upload it here. Do you even have a folder called flash on your computer?
Thanks for continuing with me. I think that I have found the answer. When viewing on the computer, the program used appears to be the 32 bit IE7. When using the website, I believe the PC is using the 64bit version of IE7 which has not yet a 64 bit version of Flash to work with. Apparently it is still coming. I'll see if I can configure the PC to adapt.
I have a Flash folder but it is the 32 bit version. I can find no swf files. The main page is in a folder on my PC which I have uploaded to my site complete. It only contains the main program and three of the jpegs.
I have found some files on my desktop in a folder 'Free Flash template' it includes some swf files.
I'll do some more investigating and post some results later.
