    Okay so here's the chiz... I've designed this website and it has this flash slide show movie on it, so I code it all up using this basic code on Adobe Dreamweaver ~

    <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="flash movee.swf" width="910" height="319">
    <param name="movie" value="flash movee.swf" />
    <embed src="flash movee.swf" width="910" height="319"></embed>
    </object>


    And it works on the previews on Firefox etc, but when I upload it to my host site, it wont show, I don't even get the grey retarded box o_o I just get this blank space. Someone help me please x

    Sorry for the simpleton answer. But have you saved your flash file in the same location as your index (or whatever page it is) on the web hoster?

    Thanks for the reply, yes I have saved it all in my Site Root folder and on my Public folder on the actual web hoster file manager

    I might have to phone up my host website people as everything I've done should work and as it works absolutely fine on my preview there should be no problem with it playing on the actual site >.< I'm just so confused, I've tried everything and nothing seems to work :'(

    When it comes to HTML. <src> (as you already probably know) trys to source and locate a file. So when it is uploaded onto your web host, it may have to be changed. However. If it works in the previews, i would assume it should work.

    Perhaps you could post a link to your website (or private message one of us) and we can have a look. This might be easier than attempting to diagnose remotely.

    My guess is...

    Your file name has a space in it so wont work online, remove it and add a / to the beginning of the file name, assuming its in the same directory as the page that is referencing it.

    some servers are case sensitive, make sure you use exactly the same case and try not to use spaces.
