    swf not appearing in flashplayer

    hi, please can you help?

    Hi 2Blu !

    Ok, that problem happened to me once, and It seems that It's just a problem of memory with the Flash Player. Sometimes, if your .swf is too heavy, or just if you don't have so much RAM on your Mac, the Flash player will start, but won't show anything... the Flash player is set to 4 Mo of memory. Just give more to it... I hope It'll work...

    macromedia rushed there mac version of the plug-in, so it has a few bugs, this is on of them, flash seems to be memory hungry, one techmique i learnt was to turn off the energy saving control panel, that apprently works alternativly select the flash player, press the apple key and with it held down select 'i' scroll the papel down to memory and assign more memomry as was suggested before.
