Problem loading external movies

Hi there

I have a problem loading external movies in my main flash site. It all works fine on my computer but then as soon as I upload them to my server it no longer works and the buttons do not work. All the swfs are in the same folder as the html and all other files

that is the link to the unifinshed site and the other movie files are called peoplethinkmovie.swf
main_contents.swf <— this one is the first one to load and works fine

These smaller movies are just there to test at the moment and as a result have not yet been designed

This is an example of the script I have used for the buttons

on (release) {

if (_root.currMovie == undefined) {

_root.currMovie = “peoplethinkmovie”;
} else if (_root.currMovie != “peoplethinkmovie”) {
if (container._currentframe >= container.midframe) {

_root.currMovie = “peoplethinkmovie”;;



Anyone able to help me at all?? I am tearing my hair out!


upload your .FLA because i can’t figure out how the code you posted works into your movie…

Hi samoddie,

The link to your site works on safari OS X Mac.

I’m having a similar problems, where my site works on all mac browsers and Firefox PC, but not Internet Explorer?

What browser are you using?

Here’s the confusing bit… It works via the actual location (i.e, but not using the url (hosted elsewhere and web forwarded to the aforementioned location)?

You might be experiencing a similar issue…
