Topic: works fine offline, but says "movie not loaded..."

Hi there, I DESPERATELY need your help as this is a project that MUST take off tonight!

It seems the simpleviewer works flawlessly locally in my html page, but when I put it online, it says "movie not loaded..." when I right click.

here is the website link for your reference:
www ninaspade com/bracelets html

This is so frustrating, it seems like I'm doing everything correctly. PLEASE PLEASE HELP!!!!

I appreciate your time to reply to this, thanks so much.

Re: works fine offline, but says "movie not loaded..."

I downloaded the relevant files and tried the site locally on my PC.
It didn't work at all on IE ('Internet Explorer cannot open the internet site') and 'Movie not loaded' on FireFox.

I replaced 'bracelets.swf' with a new 'viewer.swf' (renaming it to 'bracelets.swf') and it worked fine in Firefox but still didn't work in IE.
I would try re-uploading 'bracelets.swf' to your host.  Perhaps the original upload somehow corrupted your file.

I then moved the

<script type="text/javascript">
        var fo = new SWFObject&#40;"bracelets.swf", "viewer", "100%", "100%", "7", "#ffffff"&#41;;
        fo.addVariable&#40;"preloaderColor", "0xffffff"&#41;;
        fo.addVariable&#40;"xmlDataPath", "gallery.xml"&#41;;
        fo.write&#40;"flashcontent"&#41;;
</script>

section outside all the <divs> and put it just before the </body> tag and the gallery then displayed in IE, too.

i'll give it a shot, thanks so much for the help. I'll let you know how it goes. smile

Re: works fine offline, but says "movie not loaded..."

I know you mentioned you tried the site LOCALLY on your PC. I did what you suggested and it works fine for me locally as well.

But ONLINE it STILL doesn't work! I'm hosting the site with GoDaddy. I just don't get what I could be doing wrong.


Any other possible factors???

Re: works fine offline, but says "movie not loaded..."

are you using fetch to upload your files? fetch doesn't work with SWFs for some reason. try a different FTP program.

i actually am using fetch! i'm working on a mac as well.

I'm going to give this ftp client a shot:

thx!!

Re: works fine offline, but says "movie not loaded..."

okay, I just tried it, it isn't really the best ftp client, not stable enough.

May you please recommend a really good (preferably free) ftp client that's great for macs??

Re: works fine offline, but says "movie not loaded..."

Filezilla is free and has a Mac version.
It can be found at http://filezilla-project.org/download.php
However, I use Windows and cannot vouch for the Mac version.
