    Hi all,
    I have a website hosted on GoDaddy, been using it for a while to show off pics and whatnot and just created a little Flash anim that slideshows a couple of images that when click lead off to other sites. Tested this locally and it runs fine, but uploaded onto the GoDaddy site and the flash anim does not display. In fact there does not even show a placeholder for the anim.
    My browser does allow Flash anims, tested by visiting other sites that display Flash anims. we also tested this on the Missus' laptop and again it does not show. Both the .fla and .swf are uploaded to the site and the code points to the correct directory as they are both on the root directory so..........
    Starting to think that there is something on GoDaddy that needs to be changed but cannot for the life of me see what or where.
    Has anyone else come across this problem before, can anyone offer any advice?
    Cheers in advance,
    Mitch...

    Hello.

    First, welcome. Hope you can find answers to all of your questions here.
    I would like to point out that I've used GoDaddy in the past and find that their tech support/customer service is actually pretty good.

    This isn't directed at you, but I really do wish people would utlize simple things like FAQ, even Google searches before asking questions on here.
    In less than 30 seconds, I pulled up 74 articles on Flash in GoDaddy's Help Center.
    The first one being:
    Adding Flash files to a web page (http://help.godaddy.com/article/3029).

    While you will find help coming on here, it usually helps to exhaust the resources that GoDaddy offers. First, it saves time and effort of everyone here (you and potential replies) and secondly, it offers you direct support to your question.
    You can email them or call them for direct support questions in case that flash article doesn't help.

    Hopefully, that article will help you. Good luck with it.

    Hi there.
    Yeah well, the problem with GoDaddy help that if you try to be too specific you get zer0 results, tol vague and you get too many. What led me in the GoDaddy direction to start with was a post on another forum that mentioned Flash not showing up on a GoDaddy site and stated they had to change settings with MIME. A search for MIME settings on GoDaddy gave me zero results.
    Besides, after bypassing the SWF file directly from my site it is very functional and works perrfectly, so it looks like the way DW embeds the SWF in a HTM file may well be the problem! I discovered that DW creates a file named AC_RunActiveContent.js in a folder named Scripts which I have uploaded to my site but still no joy.
    The code in the HTM file is as follows...
    <script src="Scripts/AC_RunActiveContent.js" type="text/javascript"></script>
    </head>
    <body>
    <table width="900" border="0" align="center">
    <tr>
    <td colspan="3" align="left" valign="top"><img src="header001 copy.jpg" width="900" height="50" /></td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
    <td>&nbsp;</td>
    </tr>
    <tr>
    <td colspan="3" align="left" valign="top"><script type="text/javascript">
    AC_FL_RunContent( 'codebase','http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,28,0','width','900','heigh t','300','title','header','src','FrontAnim01','qua lity','high','pluginspage','http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/download/download.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash','movi e','FrontAnim01' ); //end AC code
    </script><noscript><object classid="clsid27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/s...rsion=9,0,28,0" width="900" height="300" title="header">
    <param name="movie" value="FrontAnim01.swf" />
    <param name="quality" value="high" />
    <embed src="FrontAnim01.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.adobe.com/shockwave/downl...ShockwaveFlash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="900" height="300"></embed>
    </object></noscript></td>
    If that gives anyone any clues i'd be very gratefull !
