can't play swf downloaded from website

I've picked one .swf from my temporary internet files and tried to open it on standalone MM Flash Player 6. Only thing I could see appeared to be some kind of loading frame instead of expected interactive graphic area. I checked file on some protection removal utils and it looks like there isn't any kind of protection on that .swf.
On the web page swf opens correctly. I can view all other swf-s thrue standalone player.
Why I can't open this .swf ?

Try dropping it on QuickTime Player. QT is a great Flash player and may work where the Flash Player doesnt.

can you post a link to this flash file so we can look at it, if possible. sometimes the flas may be trying to access to another file or have a reference to another file which may cause it to not work. in the browser it can fetch the other file it needs. you may want to empty out your temporary internet files folder and disconnect your internet connection and check in the browser and see if it still works.

hope this helps ;)

Adress is : http://www.mvp.hr/3-5-preporuka-za-putovanja.htm   (mpv3.swf)
I've tried QuickTime with no success.
If I try to save the whole page on my HD I still can't view that flash though I'm connected.

that's right, download the xml file that it needs...use this code to make it work (the link to downloading the 2 files are at the bottom)...copy this code into a text editor and save it as an html file on your computer and download the 2 files (by right clicking on them and clicking on save as) into the same directory as the html file and it works like a charm!
