You still have the URLs which appear to be pointing to the flash files on your PC...

<param name="movie" value="../../../Desktop/get_cartooned.swf">
<param name="movie" value="../../../Desktop/car_and_me.swf">
<param name="movie" value="../../../Desktop/megan_compair.swf">

Do you have some webspace somewhere? If so then you can upload the flash files to it via FTP maybe or whatever works the best.

Then you can change the references above to something like:

<param name="movie" value="http://example.com/flash/get_cartooned.swf">

Hi!

Can you post the HTML? Only the section that contains the flash...

Would it be better for me to give you my ebay url? Here it is:

http://stores.ebay.com/GET-CARTOONED

I still dont see it. It keeps saying, 3 items remaining. I have 3 flash files on the page. Does it take you a long time for it to load? I have DSL high speed.

Julian MatzJoint ChairpersonCommented:
Sorry, yes, I also looked into the source code, and there seems to be a few URLs which are wrong.

For example:

<embed src="../../../Desktop/GET%20CARTOONED%20LOGO.swf"
<embed src="../../../Desktop/CAR%20AND%20ME.swf"

There are actually a lot of these... You would need to store the flash files somewhere and use absolute URLs  on your eBay store...

Another thing is that you should not use spaces in your filenames, or these will be replaced by '%20'...

Julian MatzJoint ChairpersonCommented:
An example of an absolute URL would be this one:
<embed allowScriptAccess="never" src="http://www.godvalinchiart.org/CAR AND ME.swf?clicktag=http%3A//www.godvalinchiart.org"

The only thing to remember there is not to use spaces. In other words, "CAR AND ME.swf" should be changed to CAR_AND_ME.swf - i.e. the filename *and* the link to it...
