  • Embedding Flash in my website... browser problem?

    I took a course in Flash about 6 years ago but have since forgotten most of what I learned, so I am trying to relearn it by myself using Flash CS3.

    I created a Flash banner to embed into a website. I used dreamweaver to insert the .swf file. But when I try to preview it in Explorer, the Flash banner was blocked and a message said that the browser wasn't allowing any running scripts or activeX controls and I had to manually unblock it for it to show.

    Now, I remember when I took the Flash course 6 years ago, there was a technique I learned that will make sure that the Flash file will play no matter which browser I'm using, and I wouldn't need to unblock anything to see it. Does anyone know what I'm talking about? Please help!

    Thanks

        Upon researching SWFObject, I came across this:

        http://norrisoftenhance.ning.com/

        Does anyone have any experience with this software? any good? bugs to report?

          No, but I don't think it is really that necessary. The documentation for swfobject 2.0 are great and pretty easy to follow. Once you do one or two its a piece of cake. And imho the best way to put flash on a site - it is the most accessible I believe.

            That sometimes happens to me when I try and preview on my local machine, it usually works fine when I upload to the server.

              It should only NOT work locally if you have not uploaded your swf file movie to your server yet, and are using absolute links. If you are using relative links, you should most definitely see the flash during local testing.

                Food is one of the worst subjects to photograph. There's a whole art to making food appear appetizing, mostly by doing all kinds of unappetizing things to it. A photog friend of mine was into it for a...
