Topic: IE8 Issues - SWFObject and <Object>

Hi Everyone,

I have tried everything imaginable regarding <object>, <embed> and object/embed tags. I have also tried using SWFObject. I can only get my gallery to work in FF and Chrome, not IE8. All testing has been done on Windows 7.

My SWFObject Page is at

My Object Page is at

Any help is greatly appreciated.


Re: IE8 Issues - SWFObject and <Object>

OK. I think I figured out the Problem in in IE8. There is no classid generated in the code provided by SimpleViewer Pro. Maybe not be the actual issue, but it solved my problem.

Here is the code that worked for me:

<object classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000" width="900" height="600"><param name="movie" value="simpleviewer.swf?galleryURL=gallery1.xml"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><param name="bgcolor" value="000000"></param><param name="base"
value="" /></param><embed src="simpleviewer.swf?galleryURL=gallery1.xml" type="application/x-shockwave-flash"  allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="900" height="600" bgcolor="000000"></embed></object>
