Help needed,
My sites are working on the pc (i.e and netscape), BUT NOT ON THE MAC. The movies are loading, but it seems as if the actionscript is not working
sites http://www.benefit-travel.nl and http://www.betsies-kookwinkel.nl

Hi,
can you be more specific?
I played with both URLs with IE5 and there donīt seem to be anything wrong!

Hi there, thanks for your reply
a friend of mine tested it on NN4.7 en IE 4.01 on the mac
and she said that in the site http://www.benefit-travel.nl the main movie is not loading and the menu in http://www.betsies-kookwinkel.nl is not working

Ok,
I think itīs a "relative path" problem:

IE4.01 is a pretty old Browser. Current Mac Version is 5.0 and on PC is 5.5 I think.
4.01 surely has the same or even more Bugs than IE4.5.
For the Bugs look here:

Netscape also has problems with relative URLs.

Try using absolute paths for loading movies or geturls.

Your both URLs work fine for me on IE5.0.

hello me2222,

I worked with relative paths, so maybe that was the problem. I will try it with the absolute paths,

thanks a lot

I just tried it in ie5 for the mac, everything seemed to work fine.
Do you know what version of the flash plugin your friend has? If it's version 4, it will still open the file, but flash 5 specific stuff just won't work.


Hope it helps!
Psx
