Months ago my .swf objects were displaying just fine on my GoDaddy hosted web pages, but not any more. The stage box exists, properly sized as stipulated in the HTML, but the animation doesn't appear (not even frame 1). Just a blank area of background color. BTW: I determined that the stage box is there by using Firebug on Firefox.
What's REALLY strange is I have an older .swf file that still displays using the same HTML/PHP file. So, this problem involves files recently published (using the same Flash installation as what published the older .swf file [could be different Flash settings, though]).
I've tried using the raw HTML file generated by Flash and still no show. Also, in all cases, the Flash content displays just fine on my development server, and when loaded from the local file (on my client machine).
Yes, the .swf files are present on the GoDaddy server, and it has nothing to do with the name of the HTML/PHP file, since the same problem occurs when the name of the container file is included in the URL. I, also, tried adding a .htaccess file, to no avail:
AddType application/x-shockwave-flash .swf
I also tried loading the same page in Chrome, IE and Opera--NADA! Firefox is ver 3.6.16
Here's example code:
<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="false" />
<param name="movie" value="home06.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="bgcolor" value="#6666cc" />
The above code works on my dev server but not on GoDaddy! Also, when I right-click on the blank stage (on the GoDaddy version) the pop-up contains the following message: "Movie not loaded..."
Anybody got any ideas?
