Hi Piet

Are you sure the swfobject.js file is being loaded? How did you include it? Using Requirements::javascript()?
I suggest you use [url=http://getfirebug.com/]FireBug[/url] to see if the file loads or not.

Hi Banal,

I was using Firebug and i got the message "swfobject is not defined".

I followed the instructions as published at ssbits.org (Embed flash content using SWFObject) but maybe i have to add an include somewhere. Keep in mind that i just started using silverstripe so it can be that i missing something that's obvious for an experienced user.

Thanks,

Piet

Does swfobject.js show up in the Net Tab of Firebug? I.e. is it being loaded?

swfobject.js does not show in Net tab of Firebug. I added also a flash in one of my photo albums and that flash is showing without any problem.

When i checked the html code there is no doctype etc for the page where swobject.js is not loaded. Maybe this will help?

I was using theme BlackCandy but switching to theme Tutorial (putting FlashPage.ss in themes/tutorial/templates) i didn't got the problem with swobject.js. So it must have something to do with the theme and i will investigate further. Your help is still very welcome.

Works fine. But still one question ; where do I have to place the skin file ?
In the proposed solution, the flash file plays without a skin. I tried every possible location.
Normally you have to place the skin file at the same location as the swf file to play.
Doesn't work.

Any ideas ?
