Topic: Path issue when embedding Autoviewer in Rails app
Has anyone been able to successfully embed the Autoviewer (not Pro, the free version) into a Ruby on Rails app? For proof of concept, I ran through the installation steps copying the viewer.swf, xml file, flashobject.js and images directory under the Rails root directory called "public".
In my page (view), I added a leading slash to the swf parameter value to specify the root path -- "/viewer.swf". When I load the page, the swf runs but Autoviewer never seems to find the images. I can even see that the Flash "play" button/icon is displaying toward the upper left side of the viewer (out of place) but no images ever load.
This seems like a path issue but I don't know any other ways to troubleshoot. Any other tricks I can try? I noticed that Autoviewer Pro gives you more flexibility with the path but I don't have Flash 8 so I can't go that route.
