    Internet Explorer & Flash

    Hi all,

    I have made a little flash movie which I wish to display on the school website. I have embedded the flash movie into an HTML document as a test. I opened it locally in IE and it works fine, however when I open it in IE when it is on the webserver, it just fails to load (this appears to happen in IE6 and IE7).

    However, when I open it in firefox on the webserver, it works fine?

    The test page I made can be found here:

    http://www.ridpoolprimary.co.uk/year2.htm

    Is this security permissions in IE that is causing this to happen? If so, what is causing IE to block it and how would I get IE to accept it as legitimate?

    Thanks!

    Have you enabled 'Scripts and executables' to be ran from the web server?

    This could solve it.

    I'm a bit confused by your answer. I think you might misunderstand my first post. I'm not actually on the webserver, I meant when I'd uploaded it to the webserver, it just doesn't work.

    Also, it works in firefox, just not internet explorer?

    Can you get access to the web server though?

    No It isn't one we host in school. We rent it from plugsocket.

    I see, I might still be on the wrong line of things here, but can you ask your hosting to allow 'scripts and executables' on your account?

    This might be stopping it from running on the webserver (because .swf are classed as executables I believe).

    Re: Internet Explorer & Flash

    It's nothing to do with executable processing on your webserver, flash files are executable on the client. The server just servers it as though it is any other file.

    It file works for me in Firefox, but like you state fails in internet explorer. Fiddling with all Internet Options does nothing which leads me to believe that it's something to do with how the html page year2.htm was created.

    Since you are using wink, can you render the project again, and upload both the .swf and .html file to your webserver and try it again.

    Matt

    Edit: Ignore that, just looked at some of my wink projects and the html rendered is the same as yours. Running mine locally work fine. As does yours.
    Does seem to be something to do with IE settings then, let me investigate a bit more.

    Should still work Geoff.

    Try placing the swf and html file in the same folder (i.e. don't use the media folder) and modify the html.

    That seems to have worked for me also.

    Curious.
