I have a flash template w/ a play button.. I want to remove that and autostart the swf.. i removed the button and every object connected to it.. but when i save the file, the swf won't work.

i'm new w/ this.. what went wrong? and what should i do? main objective is to autoplay the swf removing the play button..

Chance are the file needs that button. Flash is unique in that coding is sometimes connected directly with objects, so deleting an object can remove functionality.

Hopefully you have the original, and you should start with that. First just move the play button from the stage to the side, so its not deleted. Then click on the button and go to the Actions Panel (F9) and see if there is code that says just this:


and if its there, remove it. Otherwise click on the first frame and go to the Actions Panel and look for the code there. This code makes the movie stop.
