    Ok. I'm trying to do my 1st flash site. When i publish preview and select the flash option, it looks great. The exact fit works good. Also, in internet explorer, if i open the swf file directly from my desktop, it looks perfect, just how i want it to. The resize window works too.

    But when i transfer the swf file to my web hosting server using dreamweaver, and then try to access the file on internet explorer, all i get is a bunch of weird text. The swf file will not display. Why is this?

    I tried the HTML method, publishing a HTML page with the flash inside. However when i do this, the exact fit and resize thing doesn't work in the browser anymore. It just shows directly at the top of the page, and if the window isn't big enuf, then part of the movie is cut off. It won't resize.

    How can i make the swf file show properly after transfering to my server? Here is the link to the swf file:
    http://www.creativetextures.com/Bala...lance%201C.swf

    Here is the link to the HTML file:
    http://www.creativetextures.com/Bala...ance%201C.html

    I'm on a Mac.

    Any help?.. thank u so much in advance!!

    Moved to General Help

    The files looks ok from here , Im on PC and win2000
    BUT its only a splashpage , nothing plays or nothing happens.
    Trt to use small letters in the path and save your file as this your.swf not Your.swf /YOUR.swf some servers and os doesnt support or like that much .
