external loadmovie not working on client site
on Jun 18, 2010 at 8:08:49 pm

Hi all,

I have a client who is having an issue with an external swf not loading. It works fine on my server when viewing work-in-progress, but after sending them completed files (same thing off my server) the external swf is not loading. Client says that the external file is there.

Any thoughts?

To add to the post, I updated the main flash file by including the client's full address to where the external movieclip is referenced and it now works. I am not clear as to why I now have to add the full url to where this file is on their server, yet on my ISP server I don't need to do this. For example:

loadmovie("why.swf", why_mc);

works fine on my ISP server for testing yet when all files move to client's ISP server I need to add:

loadmovie("/folder/foldername/foldername/foldername/why.swf", why_mc);

where I just replaced the actual name with foldername for client confidentiality.

Does this have something to do with the client's server security settings?
