    Flash swf file in header Link to this post

    Hi guys,

    I created a flash graphic with Adobe Flash 8. After publishing I get a SWF and a HTML file with the appropriate code. I have placed the <OBJECT> part into my header.ss file.

    Here the code in header.ss:

    <object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,0,0" width="760" height="157" id="Header" align="middle">
    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
    <param name="movie" value="themes/Vista/images/header.swf" />
    <param name="quality" value="high" />
    <param name="bgcolor" value="#ffffff" />
    <embed src="themes/Vista/images/header.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#ffffff" width="760" height="157" name="Header" align="middle" allowScriptAccess="sameDomain" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" />

    After I fushed my page I can see the space holder for my movie but the movie doesn't start. A right click on my header movie tells me that the "movie is not loaded".

    Any idea how to fix that. If I load the published HTML file in my browser I can see the movie running.

    Sometimes I think I am a idiot. Although I'm working in a Windows environment CMS is still installed on Linux. As you can see the file name "header.swf" is in lower case but Adobe saved it as "Header.swf". Of course Linux handles those files as total different files. So after renaming the file I now have a nice flash header.

    Well I hope I have at least helped someone with this article. Basically you can copy and paste the code inside your header.ss file and change the file name, path, width and height of the swf file.

    That's it.
