I've got a flash file called "menu.swf", and it calls an external ActionScript file "". I uploaded the menu.swf through the upload functionality, so now it's sitting in assets/upload. I then insert it into one of the pages, but when I preview the published page, the files shows blank.

It appears that the menu.swf is loaded, but it can't locate the Where should I be placing the I tried putting it in mysite folder, asset/upload (same level as menu.swf) and just the root folder with no avail, can someone help?

assets/upload should work, does firebug give any errors when getting the file?
i'm not sure but isn't the as file being used when compiling your swf file only or
is it needed to run the swf?

The as file is required externally to run some other classes. I've had a few more goes with this, and I think the problem might be the URL rewrite, like when I insert an image, I noticed that new images were created in the "_resampled" folder, if I place my swf manually under that folder it'll work, but otherwise it won't. Anywayz, I'll give it a few more goes, thank you so much for helping out.
