I was wondering if there was any special setting to get flash to work in Netscape.
I tried testing it in Netscape 4.72 and all I get is a white box where the flash movie is suppose to be…
I can view other flash sites…
<!-- URL's used in the movie-->
<!-- text used in the movie-->
<!-- --><OBJECT classid="clsid 27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
<font color="#0000FF">ID=joe's logo4</font> WIDTH=100% HEIGHT=100%>
<PARAM NAME=movie <font color="#FF0000">VALUE="variflex.swf"</font>> <PARAM NAME=loop VALUE=false> <PARAM NAME=menu VALUE=false> <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high> <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#FFFFFF> <PARAM NAME="SCALE" VALUE="showall"> <EMBED <font color="#FF0000">src="joe's logo4.swf"</font> loop=false menu=false quality=high bgcolor=#FFFFFF WIDTH=100% HEIGHT=100% SCALE="SHOWALL" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"<>/EMBED>
Blue - I'd suggest changing that to "joeslogo4". It's generally a good idea when designing for the 'Net to avoid spaces and special characters whenever possible.
Red - These two paramaters should be the same! Your code here is contradicting itself, as it is pointing to 2 different movies. If your SWF file is called "variflex.swf", then that's fine, just change the other name to match it. If your SWF is called "joe's logo4.swf" then I suggest renaming it to something like "joeslogo4.swf" and changing both names to match.
Oh, and Leto, the SCALE option determines how the movie is scaled within the Flash player. There are 3 options: "showall", "noborder" and "exactfit".
When set to "showall" the aspect ratio of the movie is preserved, but there may be borders around the movie.
When set to "noborder" the aspect ratio is still preserved, and there are no borders, but the movie may be cropped.
When set to "exactfit" there are no borders, and no cropping occurs, but the aspect ratio of the movie is not preserved. It is sized to fit the Flash player exactly.
The default setting is "showall". So if you do not specify which SCALE setting to use, Flash will default to "showall".
Note: Those settings determing how the movie fits within the Flash plugin, NOT the browser window.
