View Full Version : SWF not appearing in browser or even in dreamweaver preview.

I created a short flash movie in CS6 and exported as .swf.

I have inserted into my homepage (via Dreamweaver, insert>media>SWF) and I see the grey box in DW so it is there however when previewing via DW it just doesnt show, it shows the space where it should be but nothing, after uploading the page and the swf wont appear online either.

Can anyone have a look the page and see what I'm missing?

Did you upload the animation_promo.swf to the website? When I check the site http://magnetikmedia.co.uk/animation_promo.swf it says file not found

Hi there magnetik12

when this line...

<!--<script src="Scripts/swfobject_modified.js" type="text/javascript"></script>-->
...is commented out, as indicated in red, then your swf will work. ;)

This is my test site at magnetikmedia.co.uk/new1 so it was uploaded there. Uploaded to the current root too (magnetikmedia.co.uk) but no luck

Excellent, this did the trick. That line must be from a previous script I had in so was weary about removing it as there is a flash banner across the top but removed it and everything still works :)
