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:

- the swfobject.js file is located at this address:

- the product's files (XMLs, assets and images) are located in the Banner folder:

- the 3DBannerFX.swf file is located in the product's folder:

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

You can also use absolute paths like in this example:

params.base = "";

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.

In addition to my previous email: the images shown on the site are always the same ones, but they are not the first ones in the images.xml list and are not listed one after the other. I checked all the others and they are not different..
Many thanks for your assistance!

In images.xml you have set the path wrong for some images. For example if a images is called image01.JPG, you set the path image01.jpg, jpg with lowercase letters. So you have to correct that issue for each image, to write the exact name and the exact extension.

Hi – I moved a flash web site from one server to another, but the index.html page will not load the home.swf file, although if you load the home.swf separately on its own, it will play.
Here is the link I want to get working:
And here is the home.swf that should load in index.html:

Please advise!
