If you're saying that the Flickr slideshow works in your browser, but your own slideshow doesn't, then you've identified the particular content (rather than the browser configuration) as the key difference. Next step is to check whether simpler content works as you expect. Try a barebones HTML file with the same SWF... doublecheck that all the paths to external images are correct (statistically this is the most frequent cause of similar symptoms)... maybe even try another simple SWF slideshow which invokes external JPGs, to compare. Changing one part of the problem at a time is the quickest way I've found to identify the critical difference... tedious, maybe, but fast. jd -- John Dowdell . Adobe Developer Support .
