How to specify the correct path in the embedding code of the SWFs

 

Generally, you must know that the path of the assets the SWF uses (the path of the images or videos specified in the XML file and the path of the XML files themselves) must be relative to the path of the HTML file which embeds the SWF file (and not relative to the SWF file - a common confusion).

If the folder path of the HTML differs from the product’s folder path (the folder in which the XML files and images or videos are located) then you must specify that path as value for the base attribute.

This is an example for 3D Banner FX (replace the product's name if you're using a different one):

- the index.html file is located at this address on your domain: http://www.yourdomain.com/index.html

- the swfobject.js file is located at this address: http://www.yourdomain.com/Banner/swfobject.js

- the product's files (XMLs, assets and images) are located in the Banner folder: http://www.yourdomain.com/Banner/

- the 3DBannerFX.swf file is located in the product's folder: http://www.yourdomain.com/Banner/3DBannerFX.swf

This is the embedding code you have to use:

<div id="Div3DBannerFX"></div>
<script type="text/javascript" src="Banner/swfobject.js"></script> //specify the folder's name here
<script type="text/javascript">
 var flashvars = {};
 var params = {};
 params.base = "Banner/"; //specify the folder's name here
 params.scale = "noscale";
 params.salign = "tl";
 params.wmode = "transparent";
 params.allowFullScreen = "true";
 params.allowScriptAccess = "always";
 swfobject.embedSWF("Banner/3DBannerFX.swf", "Div3DBannerFX", "600", "374", "9.0.0", false, flashvars, params); //specify the folder's name here
</script>

You can also use absolute paths like in this example:

params.base = "http://www.yourdomain.com/Banner/";

In case you used a different folder name don't forget to replace in all locations the Banner name with the name of your folder.

Note: there are three different locations in the embedding code where you have to specify the product's folder name so make sure you update all of them.

hello. a year ago I bought YouTube / Vimeo Player FX. I have two problems. With the file YouTubeVimeoPlayerFX.swf put vimeo videos and only played the first video.
If I download the new YouTubeVimeoPlayerFX.swf running, but with watermarked.

With FEEDTYPE value = “vimeoUser” /> and <userChannel value=“user204123xx”/> only displays the first 20 videos, the rest not.
Thank you.

CAN YOU DO AN EXEMPLE FOR DivImageScrollerFX ?

<div id=“DivImageScrollerFX”></div>
<script type=“text/javascript” src=“swfobject.js”></script>
<script type=“text/javascript”> var flashvars = {}; var params = {}; params.base = “”; params.scale = “noscale”; params.salign = “tl”; params.wmode = “transparent”; params.allowFullScreen = “true”; params.allowScriptAccess = “always”; swfobject.embedSWF(“ImageScrollerFX.swf”, “DivImageScrollerFX”, “600”, “220”, “9.0.0”, false, flashvars, params);
</script>

Hi,
I’m trying to set up the template “SO Portfolio”, but I’ve a trouble to show a SWF (my flash file) on a page “about”. I try to make a link to my SWF in the file text.html(/so/pages/about/HTMLContentScroller/assets/text.html), however, when I start to look as on site (/so/index.html) and open the page “about” so I see only a big space at the place where the SWF must be. Nevertheless when I watch on the text.html as on a separate page in web browsers so this page displayed correctly.
Many thanks.
