Hi,

I am creating a simple htm file on disk that points to a particular flash file (swf). But when I point the url of the web browser to this file, it loads but the place where the swf file should show up, only shows the square X mark, meaning the file couldn't be found or be displayed.

When I run the file in windows by double clicking, it asks me if I trust the file (using the information bar), and when I say Allow Blocked content, it shows the swf.

Is there a way to turn this off, or work around this I am not even sure if this is the problem. Because I see various software that does this, like wink. It opens an htm file showing a particular swf.

Thanks alot,

aw

Bring the SWF out of Temporary Internet Files (if it's in there, which, it probably is).

Thanks for replying. The swf file is not in Temp...I...Files, but in places like C:\, desktop, and somewhere in program files. None of these worked.

Thanks alot,

Under Internet Options in IE, click the Advanced Tab.

Under Security, check "Allow content from My Computer"

Hope this helps,

Thanks, I tried it, but didn't work. Not only that but if it would, that would still require me to turn off the setting in the users computer, which might be bad.

I really don't know the reason, but I tried using the same htm the wink software has produced and it worked.

So I use a specific name for the video and copy the selected video (100-400kb) near this file with a specific name, and refresh the we browser and voila!

I am glad this worked!!

Thanks,

aw
