  • Tempermental Flash video

    In an attempt to embed video into flash and then into a blog, the video can be seen on a pc sometimes and NOT on a mac (in firefox). Did I do something wrong? I'm using Flash 8. I called adobe and the walked me through the embedding process, but maybe something happened when I made the transition online. My .flv is called, 'Joc2FINAL.flv', and the .swf is yungjoc2.swf do the files need the same name? H--E--L--P!!!

    Please see code below (http://www.rollingout.com/rotv/index...&pb=1#more4895) :

    No they don't need to have the same name but it could be that your version of flash player on the Mac is outdated. See if you can update that. I don't know if you can or not.

      thanks for the reply

      but i still don't understand why once uploaded the video plays online and then approximately an hour or two later, the video 'disappears' and all you see is white space. the only way the video plays, is if i upload it again to the server.
