asked on 

swf file created with ProShow Gold will not load when published to website. It will load and play locally only.

I'm simply trying to publish a page with a .swf file using Macromedia Dreamweaver. The file loads fine and plays when executed locally, but not from the html page it is embedded in. The swf slide show was created with software called ProShow Gold and can be found at http://www.fondulaclibrary.org/NewBldgSS/FlashShow2/FDLBuildingPlanFlash.html
All that loads is the navigation bar.
When I publish a swf file I created with a Macromedia Flash template, it loads and plays fine. The problem is, I don't know how to use Flash.

Any help would be appreciated. I have to get this slide show on our website ASAP --I'm to my deadline.
Thank you!

I see it's buffering the images..it probably won't show until the entire swf is loaded..and this is especially the case if there are components in the swf..you don't notice this on the local machine due to the speed it can run at..
just looked at the proshow site and as you only need 2 files .. the swf and the html..then everything is inside the swf.. no dynamic loading of images for instance to keep the swf size down.. so.. what I said above.. out of interest..what is the size of the swf?

Hi fondulac,

You are not embedding the Flash correctly to handle the new IE active component requirements.  Which version of Dreamweaver are you using?

More information is here:

The swf file is 27.3 KB. I am using Dreamweaver 8. What is the proper way to embed the flash file?

It's not finding the FLV file...
SWF is looking for the FLV file from this location...  Is that the right path to the FLV file???

Hey, when you told me that it wasn't able to read the FLV file, I checked in IIS on the Windows 2003 web server and that extension wasn't a registered mime type. I simply registered it and now it works.

Thanks! You've been an amazing help!
