Reporter: I presume you are referring to musicbutton.swf -- if I attempt to
display the swf from the URL, using the document location:

it is an incorrect path. It looks like you need to provide an absolute path in
the  src attribute to the location of the swf.

Ok, then can you provide me with the absolute URL for the page that has the
problem, not a framed page like

When I go to - am I supposed to select an option off that
page or is it on one of the two pages within that framset?

This is the only object/embed tag combination that I can find:
<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
 WIDTH=795 HEIGHT=150>
 <PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="ntobanner.swf"> <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high> <param
NAME="wmode" Value="Transparent">  <EMBED src="musicbutton.swf" quality=high
bgcolor=#000000  WIDTH=400 HEIGHT=100 TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash"

The object points to ntobanner.swf and the embed points to musicbutton.swf. I
found this on the page.

whatever you are trying to attach, never comes across, so I can't check it --
can you give me the absolute URL of the page that the swf file is referenced on

Correct, the URL for the swf file is:

That should be the content for the embed element src attribute. If you would
change that attribute value, it should work for you.

Ok, so when you signed up for an account at geocities, you had to provide a
login and password. They also gave you directions on how to manage your website.
Login and go to the manage your website area. Select to edit this page:

In that page, search for <embed, once you find that, look for the src attribute
and delete what is there (src="musicbutton.swf") and add this instead:

Save the changes, repost it to your site and it should be fine

This work in a recent nightly, marking WFM.

Reporter: Be sure to try a fresh build. Also make sure you have Flash 6
installed (npswf32.dll shows up in about:plugins). Make sure you havn't
installed the Active-X plugin.
