i made a swf gallery that is placed inside an html page. the swf load the external graphics. now, when i play the swf itself it works fine but when i insert it to my html page it does not load the external graphics. i did put the external graphics inside the site directory and i made sure the paths in the fla file are correct.
but it does not work.

    You should probably move this question to the Flash TA...they can help you better.  Post a message in community support and ask the mods to please reassign the topic.

    Add a dynamic text field in the flash movie that displays the file path of the images it is trying to load.  Then compare each file path against the HTML page's file path.  Remember that flash is looking from the HTML page's directory and not the original Flash file's directory.
