Are you embedding the flash into a web page, or just accessing them directly?

Embedding into a page isn't terribly hard, but if you don't get it quite right it wont work. Here's an example.

Your file for sake of argument is "myFlashMovie.swf". Edit your page's HTML and include this where you want the flash file to appear:

Code: Select all
<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
WIDTH="550" HEIGHT="400" id="myMovieName">
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="myFlashMovie.swf">
<PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
<EMBED src="myFlashMovie.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#FFFFFF WIDTH="550" HEIGHT="400"
NAME="myMovieName" ALIGN="" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash"

If the file is in a subfolder somewhere you can specify that with the file name. Note that you're essentially defining the flash movie twice, that's because Internet Explorer is looking for the Object tag, while FireFox works off of Object.. this'll cover all the bases. You'll need to edit height, width, background color etc etc but you get the idea.

It should show it correctly. (Assuming you have a flash plugin working right)

Sorry i should have stated.The flash page works fine when launched from the desktop or on my web host server. It has been published and embedded as per flash 8. For some reason when i go to the page through XAMPP it see's the page(title bar comes up) but the content is not displayed. HTML pages show fine....any thoughts?

In the XAMPP Welcome Page:


There is a menu item under Demos for a Flash Art feature.

Does this work?

I do not answer to post via PM. Reason is the forums are for everyone's benefit.

Then XAMPP is working as it should. The problem must be in your code.

I run serveral sites that have Flash and I do not have a problem.

Perhaps you should paste you code so it can be looked at.

Here is one of my flash embeded objects in a html file:
Code: Select all
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"
 width="460" height="380" id="coffeexml" align="middle">
<param name="movie" value="salescontactform.swf"/>
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="FlashVars" VALUE="xmlfile=salescontactform.xml&w=460&h=380"/>
<param name="scale" value="noscale" />
<param name="salign" value="lt" />
<param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
<embed src="salescontactform.swf" FlashVars="xmlfile=salescontactform.xml&w=460&h=380" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="460" height="380"
 name="coffeexml" scale="noscale" salign="lt" align="middle" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"
 pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />
