I need to be able switch which swf file is being played by clicking a link and with out the page reloading . I have 2 swf files both are in the same directory. movie1 & movie2.
I have seen similar questions solved by using an embeded object, this will not work for me.
the swf file must be called from AC_FL_RunContent.
Also I can not modifiy the swf files.

here is a mock up of my current code

<html>
<head>
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=iso-8859-1" />
<script language="javascript">AC_FL_RunContent = 0;</script>
<script src="AC_RunActiveContent.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
</head>
<body>
<table width="1000" border="0" align="center" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0">
    <tr>
        <td  colspan="3" align="LEFT">
            <script name="productVideo" type="text/javascript">AC_FL_RunContent( 'codebase','https://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0','width','640','height','390','src','flash/movie1','quality','high','pluginspage','https://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash','movie','flash/movie1, 'FlashVars', 'lscore=', 'wmode', 'transparent' );</script>
            <br><br>
        </td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
        <td width="100">
          <a href="javascript:playvid('movie1);">PLAY VID 1</a>             
        </td>
      <td width="200">
      </td>
      <td width="100">
          <a href="javascript:playvid('movie2);">PLAY VID 2</a>             
        </td>
</table>
</body>
</html>

you have two options, I believe...    use a shell.swf file to load in the proper SWF when you click a link, or you can use AJAX and innerHTML to switch out the content of a DIV.

you CANNOT load a new SWF into the embed code without reloading the page though...  it is client side code, and you would need to use AJAX to reload the content.


I would recommend using the one SWF file that loads in the movie1 or movie2 SWFs based on the link clicked...  you can easily setup External Interface for Flash to communicate with the shell SWF to load in the other SWFs...

your call...
