Need Help: Converted & Embedded SWF movie not working…

    1. Using Adobe Flash CS4 & Dreamweaver CS4 (PC)

    Problem:
    I have a .FLV movie file which I’ve imported into Flash by doing this; file > new (actionscript3.0) > import video > added skin > exported movie. Then using Dreamweaver I dropped my SWF file onto my page, accept all the files and code that Dreamweaver added…then I go and preview and it works fine, player shows and video plays. However, when I upload the files to my server it doesn’t play. It only has the video player with no movie. I’m not sure what I’m doing wrong, but any help would great at this point.

    I’ve pasted the code I’m using…thanks in advance…solekorea…

    <object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="427" height="278" id="FlashID" align="middle" title="Emmett Trailer">
    <param name="movie" value="assets/videos/SM.swf" />
    <param name="quality" value="high" />
    <param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" />
    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
    <param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
    <param name="swfversion" value="6.0.65.0" />
    <!– This param tag prompts users with Flash Player 6.0 r65 and higher to download the latest version of Flash Player. Delete it if you don’t want users to see the prompt. –>
    <param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />
    <!– Next object tag is for non-IE browsers. So hide it from IE using IECC. –>
    <!–[if !IE]>–>
    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="assets/videos/SM.swf" width="427" height="278">
    <!–<![endif]–>
    <param name="quality" value="high" />
    <param name="allowfullscreen" value="true" />
    <param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />
    <param name="wmode" value="opaque" />
    <param name="swfversion" value="6.0.65.0" />
    <param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />
    <!– The browser displays the following alternative content for users with Flash Player 6.0 and older. –>
    <div>
    <h4>Content on this page requires a newer version of Adobe Flash Player.</h4>
    <p><a href="http://www.adobe.com/go/getflashplayer"><img src="http://www.adobe.com/images/shared/download_buttons/get_flash_player.gif&quot; alt="Get Adobe Flash player" width="112" height="33" /></a></p>
    </div>
    <!–[if !IE]>–>
    </object>
    <!–<![endif]–>
    </object>

    Just to double check, you have confirmed that your swf is uploaded to the correct location? (yoursite.com/assets/videos/SM.swf according to your code)

    Based on what you’ve said, it sounds like it is a path issue.
