Flash slideshow invisible in HTML - Macromedia Flash Data Integration

HELP!

    Default Flash slideshow invisible in HTML

    HELP!

    I've developed a small Flash [8] slideshow of ten 4x6 jpgs, optimized it,
    published it, and inserted it into a Dreamweaver [8] basic XHTML-compliant
    page, saved the page and previewed it in a variety of browsers. It works
    perfectly.

    Then I FTP'd it along with other files and photos for the site.and tested it
    out on the same browsers: everything EXCEPT the slideshow now works perfectly;
    there's not a trace of the ss.

    What am I doing wrong? I've retraced all of my steps several times -- I even
    re-FTP'd it -- all with the same result. I've followed all the steps which have
    worked for years in the past -- see one of my websites at http:/
    [url]www.enotecatoscanawinebistro.com/photos.htm[/url] as an example.

    Thanks in advance for your good advice. I'm feeling pretty dumb at the moment.

    Default Re: Flash slideshow invisible in HTML

    I see the slide show using FireFox 2 and the Flash 9 player.

    In general some items to check include:

    1. Test it with the default HTML file that Flash produces. See File->Publish
    Setting and check the HTML box.
    2. Right mouse click over where the movie is supposed to display in the Web
    browser and get the version number of the of the Flash player. Perhaps you
    published to a higher player number that installed in browser and used a
    feature that prevents it from working.
    3. Be sure the capitalization of ALL the file names are exact in the HTML. If
    you used drag and drop or dialogs in DW they should be ok. But if you hand
    coded and have different capitalization, on a Linux or Unix server you have a
    problem.
    4. View the source in the Web Browser and be sure it is the correct source
    file. As well in Flash Actionscripting you likely handcoded file names. You may
    have FTP's to a different folder or from a different folder or HTML file
    version.
    5. Be sure if you are using folders in the linked files, they also have
    correct capitalization and match your local machine.
