I'm not sure why, but in the Safari browser, both Mac and PC, the player will not always play. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I'm sure I've made a mistake on my end that is causing this. Here is my page in question: http://mangionemagic.com/video.htm
I went ahead and made the changes you posted above, but the player, in Safari will not always play. When it loads, the picture in the player is not centered and it will not play anything. I can see my playlist in the player with all of the thumbnails and the descriptions. The playlist will even move when I click on one of the videos. But nothing will play. I'm getting confused. ; )
Adobe Flash Player security restrictions require that the movie (mediaplayer.swf or player.swf or imagerotator.swf) and all data files (playlist.xml, captions.xml, skin.swf, plugin, etc.) _MUST_ come from the *_EXACT_* same domain unless you put a cross-domain policy file on the root of the server that is serving the data files.
Thanks for all of the information! I must admit that some of it is over my head.
I tried removing the "../" but no luck. I did however fix it by simply using the full path url for each of the three urls. That seems to have fixed it. Now, regardless of if it has a www or not, it will work.
Thanks for helping me pinpoint the problem! You are awesome!
i'm having a similar problem with my jw image rotator slideshows at http://carriagehousecafe.com working great in IE7 and FF3. but getting nothing but a black window and spinning load icon in safari 4. tried resetting safari and reinstalling the flash player. using an embed code for this. any help?
Be aware that you will lose the entire division element with an id of "alternativeContent" when swfobject writes the object element. Therefore, if you want to use any CSS for styling or positioning, you should wrap the division element in an additional element which would be targeted by the CSS.
