From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9.5+) Gecko/20011114 BuildID: 2001111411 Flash plugin start (5r41), but does not work properly. It does not show a part of the screen with the buttons that is visible with IE + Flash5r42, so the page is unusable. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Go to specified URL 2. 3. Expected Results: Show the complete Flash Plugin. May be that the problem is that IE got r42 of Flahs, instead Netscape got only r41. The problem occurs also with M0.9.5, N6.2 and several builds post 095.
yeah, I vote for r41 should be replaced with r42 in netscape distributions.
I'm on Win2K, Build 2001120504 and experience this problem too. I also get the same thing with Acrobat and quicktime and WinMedia plugins: the plugin starts, but no content is displayed. The Java plugin works. I downloaded a Nov 27 build, and everything worked, but yesterday I got a daily, and it hasn't worked since... I was hoping this would be solved by that plugin registry refresh thing, but no such luck.
confirming that buttons are not visible (win NT 20011205)
Status: UNCONFIRMED → NEW
Ever confirmed: true
ok...I found something. I think the flash video just stops before finishing... I say this because : if I right click on the left side just outside the orange border and select 'FORWARD', the buttons on the left side load. Same is true for the bottom portion of the flash video. The video appears conplete. Daniele, can you confirm ?
*** Bug 113768 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
Yes, i can confirm. There are three panel that appears (left, bottom and bottom-left) if I select FORWARD, and if I select all of this the flash appear as in IE5. If I Select a button, all the panel disappear and I have to repeate the same operation.
I have the same behavior with Apple's QuickTime plugin (In addition to with the Flash plugin)
Created attachment 62865 [details] screen shot showing Flash having loaded, but not running. I'm on mozilla build 2001122703, Win2k, Flash 5r42. The pop-up is from right-clicking on the white area on the left where there is supposed to be a Flash-driven menu. Not really sure what the terrible formatting of the images is about...
*** Bug 118115 has been marked as a duplicate of this bug. ***
I do have flash 5.0 r41 installed, but I have not found any flash content on http://www.ebismedia.tv there are only several anim gif images:( http://www.whistler-blackcomb.com has flash object on the left I can see it properly in my 2002-01-14 w2k debug build. Shrirang could you update the test case for this bug please?
serge, go to http://www.ebismedia.tv/ click on "ISDN" Observe the flash movie playing-> click on SKIP and see the actual video which loads partially.
sorry, the steps should have been mentioned clearly
thanks, I can see it now.
I followed Shrirang's instructions in Comment #11 with no success: I just get a big, blank, white square. No movie, no "skip" link. A right click reveals a menu that says "Movie not loaded" which is greyed out, and "About Macromedia Flash Player 5..." I am on W2K, build 2002011703. I do have values set for my cache sizes, I saw that mentioned in some of the duplicates, but to no avail. Also, one person in a duplicate stated that Flash hasn't worked for him since 0.9.6
Zac, could you try http://www.macromedia.com/software/flash/about ?
Hey Serge. Yeah, I tried that with 2002011703, and it's the same as I reported before: all flash content is replaced by empty boxes, and the popup on those areas show "Movie not loaded". I also installed 0.9.6 and tried it, and everything works great with that old one (Build 2001112009). Lots of swishing graphics and other neat things. So I don't know what changed between then and now, but with current builds, it's now definitely broken on my system. And, as I've stated before, several other plugins don't work either: Acrobat, and Quicktime (they *do* with 0.9.6).
Thanks Zac. That is strange:( all plugins, you mentioned, work just fine for me with w2k latest mozilla bits. The problem with flash content on http://www.ebismedia.tv, as Srirang described it, could be a flash problem itself. I'll try to make a simple test case for that.
I just wanted to add my $0.02 - There's another bug somewhere in bugzilla that details this -- but disabling Mozilla's disk cache also disables the following plug-in(s): Flash, QT, Shockwave. I'm sure there are others. Which is kind of irksome, as I have plenty of memory to just use a memory cache. I sure hope that Mozilla checks the Memory cache before the disk cache (which I'm sure it does).
Not sure what you mean by disabling the cache, but my caches are set to 4M memory and 10M disk. Also, I don't change any settings between 0.9.6 and the latest, and 0.9.6 works, latest doesn't.
Release of flash used by mozilla is 5.0 r41, insted IE uses r42. Can't the problem be this?
I'm seeing this (or a similiar bug) on Linux installs of 0.9.7 and build 20020113.1 - both the Crossover Quicktime plugin and the Flash load up fine, but appear to have problems loading additional data (Quicktime shows a 'broken film' icon, Flash displays a blank screen (with the right-click menu showing "Movie not loaded"). No problems with Java; Galeon 1.0.2 using the 0.9.7 libraries works fine with the plugins too.
In an effort to narrow down exactly what build this became broken for me, I was hunting through the builds in http://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla/nightly/ but it doesn't go far enough back (only about a month back). Is there a repository of nightly windows build from between 0.9.6 (2001/11/20) and 2001/12/26?
I doubt it. Could you try to move mozilla's registry.dat file, on w2k you can find it most likely in %SystemDrive%:\Documents and Settings\<users_name>\Application Data\Mozilla directory, into %TEMP%? I'm just guessing ...
Removing the registry didn't help, but trashing the ~/.mozilla directory completely seems to have cured the problem on my Linux box.
Nice catch Dan! I can verify that removing ~\Application Data\Mozilla\ on W2K also solves this problem on build 2002012403. I will endeavour to see exactly what file in this directory is messing us up. But first, I must go snowboarding.
Under ~\Application Data\Mozilla\ on W2K Ihave only registry.dat (wich contains infos about profiles) and a empty "profiles" directory. I have all my profiles in another directory on another drive. deleting registry.dat cause mozilla create a new profile in ~\Application Data\Mozilla\ and start with default options, but the bug remains. build 2002020409
Just in case, I am talking about www.ebismedia.tv
Ah, for me the profile and registry have the same base directory. Anyway, it seems that the bug disappears for me with a clean profile, removing the registry does not seem to make a difference. I tried keeping my old registry, and moved the Profile dir (on startup the profile "wizard" ran) and Flash works fine.
WFM on Windows XP. Daniele, what's your disk cache set to? Can you attach the output from about:plugins to this bug. Thanks. May have been fixed another bug (I see an align=top inside a nested embed).
Created attachment 68530 [details] screenshot This is a screenshot of about:plugins focused on flash plugin. I cannot attacch all page cause the save feature doesn't work for that page (!) and even if I send it to me, the attacch can'r be saved. my disk cache is set to 50000 Kb (memory on 16000). you can see that mozilla is installed on G:\Programmi\internet\Mozilla, registry.dat is in G:\Documents and Settings\Daniele Dellafiore\Dati applicazioni\Mozilla and my user directory is on e:\users\della. Running with a new clean profile doesn't solve the problem. (W2K SP2, Moz build 2002020409)
Created attachment 68532 [details] screenshot of flash not running on ebismedia.tv This is how the flash is showed to me after i have checked the "Riproduci" (run or play in english) in the left pane of flash. The central pane has always "Riproduci" checked, but in the other three is unchecked. If I check that item on the each other panes, the flash run and is showed correctly, but if I navigate throug it, the problem returns.

seems like these dudes have changed the home page layout. with the latest scriptable flash player , I see the same content as on IE. close this?
I'm under the impression that this is an Evangelism bug directed at Macromedia and not the folks at ebismedia.tv.... and thus the reason for all the dupes/dependancies... Perhaps new test cases are needed, but this bug is most certainly not fixed

Ok, I've unistalled my mozilla, reinstalled the 1.0 branch removed NPSWF32.dll from all Plugins directories of my computer, then I went to macromedia page and downloaded the installer, so I installed it and the test pages didnt work. Following comment #52 I made a search for the flashplayer.xpt file and there were one in the components directory of my Netscape, so I copied that file to the Plugins folder of my Mozilla and it finally worked. So I am suspecting that Macromedia installer doesnt install the xpt file, I will open a new bug about this...
I talked with Arun. We do have some problem with the fact that the macromedia installer will not copy and xpt if you have too many browsers. THis is probably only affecting developers they usually have many browsers.
You can just click on the XPI package that comes with the browser: ftp://sweetlou.mcom.com/products/client/seamonkey/windows/32bit/x86/2002-07-25-08-1.0/xpi/flash.xpi
I have filled bug 159393 about this xpt issue.
