word. thanks guys – I just swapped in the Deconcept swf embed code – which is nice and simple, and then I republished by fla files to Flash Player 7 (they were on Flash Player 9). So my embed script was looking for Flash 7, and my swfs were published to v9. The combination of that new embed script plus some cleanly published .swfs seems to have done the trick.
Although I'm guessing it was really all about the flash player versions as a few of you had suggested before. It's always so damn simple in the end.
(top banner and side banner are all linked up and happy now)
THANKS to everyone who jumped in to help out.
use only the flash and embed on a test page, see if it still breaks on your bowser. try to find if its the flash or the html
yeah, it appears to have something to do with player version, had 9,0,28,0 on my laptop and it was working, updated to 9,0,115,0 and it stopped working.
i think codebase attribute is just the lowest player version that won't prompt an update in IE
let me try that again:
I'm thinking it must be a player version thing, yeah, except I don't know how to work that out. I pulled a Flash embed script from someone's tutorial on working around Dreamweaver's Flash embed crappiness, but it could be outdated... maybe this line is causing the trouble? it's looking for Flash player 7, which I thought would be a good safe bet:
So it embeds successfully, but I don't know what half of the script means. I can post the whole script if that'd help...
could it be an issue with player version?
also, how are you linking it? getURL() right?
Tried clearing your cache? Maybe you gots an old version with no links. My mac, 10.3 FF, is linking fine
Hm, yeah, I'm all geared up with Flash, and I'm hearing similar things from all sorts of (fully flash-playerified) people I've run this by.
And yeah, I have the AS linking from both that black button as well as from a banner-wide hidden button...so the whole thing should link, nomatter where it's clicked.
do you have flash installed for ff?
i have opera 9 and safari beta 3 for win xp and its not working in those either... so far i can only get it to work from IE7
the rollover works just fine but it doesnt take you anywhere... i'm getting the little pointer cursor for the whole banner, not just for the "learn more" button... dont know, your swf by itself works just fine in all browsers... its probably html gnomes... drink more, that should fix it
i usually have to come back later and thats when im like... oh fuck is that all it was?
eh, strange. anybody have any idea what's behind the inconsistencies? I'm riding the guy that designed the blog for some sort of better system for running ads, but who knows if that will ever happen. my only thought is that there's something with the way it was embedded? or maybe I could add in an additional link to the coding so that the placed .swf links as on object, independently of the built in .swf link?
this shouldn't be my problem on this dude's blog, but what can you do. thanks again guys.
works fine in ff on mac
works on mac safari and netscape
not working for me either on FF/Mac
