I am having problems loading a video flash file from a website. The pages were assembled in Dreamweaver CS3 and uploaded to the site using DW's own FTP. I have had a whole host of problems but now all I get is a blank screen when I try to load the file off the server.
Attached is the code for the page ( I was advised by my host that there was errors in it, I'm a newbie so I wouldn't know what to look for)
If you would like to see the problem the website is and navigate to the media page and click on the first image on the left. I was sure it would be just a broken link but dreamweaver doesn't see a fault.
Thank you very much in advance
