My website has an intro animation and a preloader loop that plays while the balance of the swf (exported as Flash 4) loads behind it. It was created on Mac using Flash 5.

It seems to work correctly (meaning that the swf starts playing right away) on Macintosh using either Netscape or IE, but on the PC, it only works using Netscape. In IE on a PC, the screen stays black while the entire swf is downloading, as if it doesn't see the intro or preloader loop at all.

Any ideas how to remedy this? Please help!

Thanks in advance-

sounds like the PC ie might not have the correct plugin ?

Hi,
I think there´s something wrong with the object/embed of your html (different paths):

In the object you use
param name="movie" value="movie.swf"
but in the embed it is
embed src="images/movie.swf"

me2222 and Peter H-

Thanks for the help. Turns out that the object/embed conflict was in fact the problem. Why this problem only affected PC users using IE, I have no idea. But it's fixed now, and that's all I care about!

Thanks again for the help-
