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. how can I embed my fxvideo- gallery on facebook?

FlashXML Support

Hi,

You would need an application that allows use of html code and then you can use the embedding code to display the Video Player. Also, you would need to host the video’s files somewhere so it could be accessed from facebook.

Hi,

I purchased the Dock Menu FX. Unfortunately when clicking on a small image the window with the big image doesn’t open. To make sure it is not due to the changes I made, I tried the same with the original files – and it doesn’t work either. Do you have any suggestions?

Thanks

Hello,

You need to install that feature yourself. You will find a detailed tutorial for that here .

Hi,

I want to use your coverflow in an index.php which is not in the same directory
like the assets and I implemented it like in your tutorial above.

Every thing works fine BUT the videos don’t work!
That means, that the pictures of the videos are also be loaded, but if you click
to the play button there comes an error-message “Media not found”.

Do you have a hint for me!?
