    Need Help: Converted & Embedded SWF movie not playing...?

    Here's the problem I'm having...I have 3 different .FLV movie clips, which I've converted into SWF movie files. I did by using Adobe Flash CS4, create a new file > import video > added playback with skin > exported video. Then I simply dragged and dropped the SWF files on to my webpage using Dreamweaver CS4. When I preview it, it works fine. However when I upload it to my server, it doesn't work at all.

    Can anyone help me figure out why? I've been at this for a few days and haven't found any info that helps. I feel like I'm missing something...I've pasted the code I'm using...Thanks in advance, SoleKorea...

    You may have converted a flv into a swf, but I doubt it. Using Dreamweaver just puts a swf (which plays the flv) on the html page, it does not replace the flv. So be sure to upload all the files to your server, the html page, the .swf, and .flv video.

    Thanks for the reply...but I've uploaded all necessary files including the swf, flv and html to the server yet none of it works...thanks for the suggestion.

    Does anyone have any other ideas as too what the problem might be, and how to fix it? Thanks!

    Well you might want to double check the pathing in the .swf. When you place the swf on the html page, you are in effect, taking it out of the "assets/videos/" folder. So the the path from the swf back down to the .flv should also be relative to the new location of the swf, in otherwords,
    Code:
    "assets/videos/my.flv"
    So if the swf and the .flv are in the same folder, be sure to change the path in the swf (and I don't mean the html page).
    to test if pathing is your problem, create a test html page with the swf coding on, and save it in the same folder as the swf and the .flv. But then the html code to find the swf will be
    Code:
    <param name="movie" value="life.swf" />
    Best wishes,
    EfV
