Hello All.
Could you suggest some solutions to disable audio of the .swf file using Javascript or HTML. I use <object> tag to show swf. Maybe should be some additional parameter?
<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,0,0"

                        width='80' height='80' align="middle">

                        <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />

                        <param name="allowFullScreen" value="false" />

                        <param name="movie" value='some.swf' />

                        <param name="quality" value="high" />

                        <param name="scale" value="default" />

                        <param name="autoplay" value="false" />

                        <param name="volume" value="0" />

                        <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />

                        <param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />

                        <embed src='some.swf' quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff"

                            name="banner" align="middle" scale="default" wmode="transparent" allowscriptaccess="sameDomain"

                            allowfullscreen="false" autoplay="false" volume="0" width='80' height='80' type="application/x-shockwave-flash"

                            pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />

                    </object>

Try the param "mute" and set it to "true". Comment back to see if it works.

Tried both in the object and embed tags? Hmm... that's strange. Try setting the autoplay to true and see what happens. If it does load without sound, then there's something causing not to load the volume values when the user starts the play on click.

Hmm... I really thought it was a streamed movie but this is different. It seems like the SWF is treated like it was a gif. It is making a progressive download and I don't think you can play with it's sound properties. I think your best shot is to mute th SWF from Flash directly and if you want the user to start playing a sound, add a button for that in the movie.

You could also make the sound NOT start but play when the user passes it's mouse over or somthing like that... depends on what you want.

Thank you Caracena. As I understand I need to change the SWF file, but the file is uploaded by user and it's shown on my page. So I cannot change the file. I thought should be some settings of the Flash Player that controlled sound volume.

Look at http://www.boutell.com/newfaq/creating/mute.html

It seems that the problem are browsers as it should work with volume="0" as you originally stated. One option you have is to use a FLV player like JW Player where you can add a param for that and it will actually respect it, instead of using the browser's player, leaving margin for errors like this one.

Try setting up the player using JW Player's wizard at http://www.longtailvideo.com/support/jw-player-setup-wizard
