Have you double checked the links?

I know when you use dreamweaver to link to a file it likes to use the file:// prefix.

Obviously, when you upload this to your FTP it tries to look for "file://C:/Documents and Settings/.... etc.

Just make sure it links to the file relative to the pages position in the directories :)


Of course, I may not be right, so do as Major Payne suggested and link us to the page :)

Don't wanna insult you here :)

It seems it's trying to link to "FraccOrandino.swf".

Have you made sure they are in the same directory and in the correct case?

Some browsers don't like certain links depending on case, or mine used to dislike theme anyway.

OK. The name of file is FraccOrandino.swf and is set in your media code as such. That means the file path should have pointed to same directory as the fraccOrandino.html file. Now either it is named differently, not uploaded or in wrong directory.

Your media code:
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=7,0,19,0" width="400" height="256">
<param name="movie" value="FraccOrandino.swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<embed src="FraccOrandino.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="400" height="256"></embed>
</object>
BTW, you can delete the </embed> tag. There is only one embed tag.

If you perchance get the path correct, you might want to try this code:
<!-- begin embedded Flash file... -->

<div style="width: 400px; height: 256px; margin: 0 auto;">

<object classid='clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000' codebase='http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0' style="width: 100%; height: 256px;">

<param name='movie' value="http://www.procasazamora.com/orandino/FraccOrandino.swf">

<param name='quality' value="high">

<param name='bgcolor' value='#fff'>

<param name='loop' value="false">

<embed src="http://www.procasazamora.com/orandino/FraccOrandino.swf" quality='high' style="400px; height: 256px; background: #fff" loop="false" type='application/x-shockwave-flash' pluginspage='http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash'>

</object>

</div>

<!-- ...end embedded Flash file -->
Just insert complete and correct URL.

Thanks Major Payne
I copied and pasted the code and still didn't work so then I thought of just linking to the .swf and when I test it it works fine but when I upload it I get the same problem.

could it be a problem with the root folder in server not having the .swf extension?
and shouldn't there be a root folder other than the "/" folder as shown in the image attached?

"/" is correct for many FTP programs when showing remote directory.

I see 3 *.swf files. Are you linking to one of those in the root directory or this one here: "http://www.procasaza...cOrandino.swf"? If linking to the one in the root direct directory and not the one in the "orandino" folder, then the media player has the wrong path.

screen_shot_2.jpg OK let me start from begining
I have done it so when the home page opens (here is the link http://www.procasaza....com/orandino/)
the person will click on the link to the next page and the video will show up embedded on the page then the person clicks on the play button.
here is the home page and the button to the page where the video is:

I see video is running, but it doesn't get buffered enough so runs/stops all the time.
