Topic: Embedding viewer on a remote page, need help
First off I'd like to say that SimpleViewer is the perfect viewer app for what I have been trying to accomplish. Great work Felix.
Now, I am trying to get my galleries to load within a seperate html page that does NOT reside on the same directory (or even domain at times) as the viewer itself.
My end goal is to use SimpleViewer for eBay listings, as I think that it is very eye catching and like it says, simple, and functional.
My problem is, nothing I try works!
I think the biggest problem is that I don't quite understand how to use the xmlpath imgpath and thumbpath vars, but I'm working on it!
Here is my test page, on it I've used the code provided by adobe to embed a flash movie on a page that should work in MSIE and FF/Moz/Opera as #1, and used the snippet of code Felix has given to a few others here which from what I can tell is almost the same thing, but does not have the <object> tags to make it cross-browser compatible, as #2.
In IE6, #1 loads, and shows the "loading xml data" but doesnt load anything, again I think this is due to me not having the proper information to pass the actual xml data to the viewer since it is not in the same directory as the test page. I have flash but havent purchased the source code yet to see if I can edit it to retrieve the xml. #2 loads and when I hover over it with the mouse i get the alt text that says "Click to activate this control" I click it, it loads and I have to right click and click "Play", which displays a viewer with no data that has the gallery browsing arrows and the download link.
In Firefox, both seem to do the same as in #2 in IE6, and I have to right click the movie and click play to display the controls and the download link.
Here is the actual viewer I am trying to load:
I created it with the server side PHP generator.
Any help in fixing either of these embeds so that they work properly and editing my xml or even the .js files if I have to to make it reference the images and everything else correctly would be great!
