Topic: Embed issues: Remote images

First off, I should mention I know very little about flash or programing in general.  Ive gotten as far as I have by reading posts and trial and error.

Im trying to use simple viewer in myspace.  Id like it to display my friends and have a caption link to thier myspace pages.

I registered for a file hosting site and uploaded the swf and xml files, then created sub-directories for the images and thumbs.

Using this code, I was able to embed the viewer into a div on my site.

<embed allowScriptAccess="never" allownetworking="internal" src="url.swf" FlashVars="xmlDataPath=url.xml" bgcolor=#000000 WIDTH=425 HEIGHT=400 TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash">
</EMBED>

It worked, but the images do not load.  I edited the xml imagepath and thumbpath to be the url for the folders containing each, but still no effect.  They look like this:

imagepath="http://filexoom.com/files/view/12923/simpleviewer/images/"
tumbpath="http://filexoom.com/files/view/12923/simpleviewer/thumb/"

What am I doing wrong? Please help.

Hi,

I've added Q25 in the FAQ, that demonstrates how to load SimpleViewer into a mySpace page: http://www.airtightinteractive.com/simp … r/faq.html
