Hi,

I have a Flash movie that grabs a variable value from JavaScript using SetVariable. It plays fine in IE, but not in Mozilla/Netscape. Can anyone help?

Most likely, the problem is how you're accessing the movie via the javascript.

Try something like:

if (navigator.appName.indexOf("Microsoft Internet")!=-1) {
document.getElementById("MOVIE_ID").SetVariable("VARIABLE", "VALUE");
} else {
document.embeds["MOVIE_NAME"].SetVariable("VARIABLE", "VALUE");
}
