Hello guys...

I been trying to get a swf to work since Nov,22,2010.. Todays is the Nov30,2010 you can tell I be spending time working with it!

Ok I when through almost every thread here about swf and bla bla bla....

I am trying to put a slideshow in my template... I put like 3 o 4 different codes <object> with <embed>, and without it, with the IE if element and all that good stuff... I edited the htcacess file and added swf and xml to it.... I try uploading the swf to the asset and didnt work, as well to another directory....

I tried to upload through the admin panel and inserting to a page and it didnt load either.... The interesting point here is that if I access the file directly from my browser it shows up and play well... here is the latest code that im using.. thanks! here is the link

<object width="636" height="222" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="">
<param name="movie" value="" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
