Topic: Flash

Hi,

I have a Flash element in a test area that works great in IE 6, but the other browsers are messing up the left and right margins. What gives? And how do I get the other browers to cooperate?

Re: Flash

you have 2 different widths for your flash movie. the doc.write outputs 748 and the <embed> sets the width at 900

Tank,

Thanks. There's nothing like fresh eyes. It is quite something that we humans tend to see what we expect to see, and not to see what we do not think is there.

Hey Phil,

The swf file is resized causing distortion and jags on the flash images. Just a heads-up...

Re: Flash

To help me understand your logic, what is the purpose of using javascript for writing the <object> code instead of just writing it directly to the page? It seems to me that would mean that anyone with javascript turned off would not be able to see the flash even if they had the flash plugin in their browser.

Re: Flash

Microsoft lost a lawsuit on how Active X compenents are delivered. So the current process is to use javascript to write into an element the HTML needed to display the Flash.

Being that there is no pretty answer to this issue it has been accepted that generally speaking if someone is surfing with JS turned off, the they will most liekyl not have the Flash player installed for the same reason.
