Flash Slideshow not Updating

Hey all,
I've finally reached my wit's-end trying to figure out how
to solve what is seemingly such a inane problem. I'm working on a
University Website for their Recreation Dept. On the main index
page I've developed a Flash slide-show that automatically plays and
loops a series of photos of different activities. It's basically a
SWF file that calls to an XML listing of the picture locations,
speed, transition time, etc. It has worked great. However, I
recently tried to put a few more pictures into the series, taking
the total from five to nine. This update works PERFECTLY on my work
machine -- using Dreamweaver, when I preview the page, I see my new
slide-show, and all the new pictures. However, after uploading all
my pertinent files to the host server, my index page continues to
play the OLD Flash slide-show, and not my updated one. I've
uploaded the new swf file, the new xml file, the new index.html,
even the AC_RunActiveContent.js script. Everything has been
overwritten, several times, and the index page on my server will
not update to the new content. Any ideas or clues to get around
this? I know it's not exactly easy to understand, but hopefully
somebody has run into this same problem. Thanks in advance,
Mike

Sounds like a file cache problem.
What I usually do is put version numbers on the swf files so
that when you update it the old file doesn't show up again. There
are many techniques that people use, none of them seem to work 100%
of the time when the new file has the same name as the old file.
What you can try is:
1. Change the swf file name andupdate the name in your html
file
2. Remove the swf file from the server, open your html page,
hit refresh (it should hang because the swf file isn't there), then
publish the new swf and hit refresh again.
There are also techniques with meta tags.

  • Flash Player Not Updating?

    Hello,
    About 10 minutes ago, I checked the Plugin Checker to make sure all my plugins were up to date. It said that my Flash Player needed updating, so I did that.
    However, I checked the Plugin Checker again after downloading to make sure it went through, it didn't, and still lists Flash as Vulnerable/In Need of an update: http://i.imgur.com/tiA64Ji.png
    Checking Flash's About page, it seems that I have the correct version?: http://i.imgur.com/RL7rdif.png This version is also the same one listed in the download page: http://i.imgur.com/6xLDOOU.png
    So am I up to date or not?

    It is a bit of a headache right now as 16.0.0.296 is vulnerable actually however Adobe has yet to release yet another update to try and fix critical exploits that is in older versions.
    https://helpx.adobe.com/security/products/flash-player/apsa15-02.html
    The update will likely be available at https://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/distribution3.html before http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/ as was case with last release for a few days.

  • Flash slideshows not working.

    Every since the latest upgrade of Flash I have been haveing problems with YouTube Videos not playing in Firefox, and now I note my Flash Slideshows (generated with Showit Web) are not playing at all. I have not had a problem with this in many years of using flash slideshows. Now with the last version NOTHING seems to work. I see I am not the only one having this problem. Slideshows are not playing in Firefox or IE9. This is not acceptable. And telling me how to fix it on my PC is not acceptable as none of my customers can see the slideshows on their PCs either. I am losing business as users are simply going away. This MUST be fixed!!
    Example of slideshown not playing:
    www.carlmillerphotos.com/artistfaerie
    Flashe Version: 11.7.700.169
    OS: Windows 7 (64-bit)
    Browser: Mozilla Firefox, IE9

    My work around was to unistall Flash Player 11.7.700.168 and reinstall the last version of 11.6. Since that time Adobe says they have fixed the bug internally. This is the Adobe reply to the bug I reported here: https://bugbase.adobe.com/index.cfm?event=bug&id=3544949

    Hi,
       Thank you very much for your report. We have reproduced the issue.
    Glad to tell you that this bug has been fixed internally, please wait for the next public release version.
    Or you may try the beta version of the next release:
    http://labs.adobe.com/downloads/flashplayer.html
    Regards,
    Donie        
    I have not tried to reinstall 11.7 to confirm that it works with the Showit slideshows yet. The problem is that this is out of our hands. We can work around it, but what really matters is what our slideshow viewers have installed on their computer. If Adobe is right there should not be a problem going forward with the latest Beta, and the next public release.
    Has anybody tried to run a Showit slideshow with the latest Flash Player Beta? Here is one: http://mlphotography.com/slideshows/julie_scott/

  • Operational Flash Version # Not Updated After Upgrade?

    I've just upgraded my 11050's to 5.00 build 69.
    When I look at a "show version", the new version is displayed but the operational and locked flash still list build 33. Anyone else run into this or know what could cause this?
    Here's the output:
    B5-CSS-1# sho ver
    Version: ap0500069 (5.00 Build 69)
    Flash (Locked): 5.00 Build 33
    Flash (Operational): 5.00 Build 33
    Type: PRIMARY
    Licensed Cmd Set(s): Standard Feature Set

    I used these documents when upgrading. I used the manual upgrade method instead of using the script.
    1. copied code to the CSS
    2. unpacked the image
    3. set the primary boot-image
    4. rebooted
    The response I got from TAC on this is that the operational flash is only updated when going to a new major release, not maintenance releases.
    All indications are that I am running the newer version despide the wrong operational version # showing up. Perhaps this is just an issue with this particular code version?, i.e. When the code was compiled, there was a version number parameter somewhere that wasn't updated?

  • FF shut down my Adobe flash cuz not updated & won't download now

    I've tried to find the A player by using several restore sites but FF has definitely removed it as they indicated on my computer saying it was not updated and was a danger.
    I need this plug in but it will not download in any fashion in fact Tools shows no plugins, nor is Adobe of any kind in programs.
    I also tried to download by disabling security settings and then another time the firewall and then another time putting Mozilla in safe mode. Can not get it to download just get a blank page that says downloads complete but they are not. can not play utube or news videos or daily motion vids.

    You have Shockwave Flash 10.0 r45 (that is Adobe Flashplayer) installed '''''and not disabled''''' in ''Tools > Add-ons > Plug-ins''. It shows with the information automatically submitted with your question (click "More system details" to the right of your original question; if were disabled, it would not show up there).
    Read the following carefully...
    There are 2 versions of Adobe Flash:
    *an '''ActiveX version''' for IE only
    *a '''Plugin version''' for most other browsers including Firefox
    *On a Windows system, you should always update both individually.
    '''''You do not appear to have the Plugin version for Firefox installed. ''''' If you did, in Add-ons > Plugins you would see "Shockwave Flash ''(version)''". If "Shockwave Flash" is there and is disabled, click the "Enable" button.
    Check your Plugins often --> http://www.mozilla.org/en-US/plugincheck/
    *only the most popular/used Plugins are known by this page
    *page will detect only installed, '''''enabled''''' Plugins

  • Flash player not updating to 11.7.700.191 help please

    anyone know why this isnt updating?

    I don't work on the installer, so I'm guessing here.  If you've already selected an update preference, it would make sense to not prompt you again.  We *should* prompt you on a fresh install, or after running the Uninstaller, as you would not have a defined preference in either case.
    You can also toggle the update notification preference at any time from Control Panel > Flash Player > Advanced.
    You can choose between "Always Allow Adobe to install updates", in which case we only notify you when there's a feature-bearing dot release (on the Release channel).  We call this a "loud" release when we talk about it on the team.
    If you choose "Notify me to install updates", you'll always get that prompt.  If you choose "Never check for updates", you won't get notifications or updates.
    For Beta Channel, we never do "loud" releases.  Once a week, we send out a build of the latest branch that's ready to go.  Right now we're shipping betas of the next Flash Player 11.7 service update while we wrap up the feature work on Flash Player 11.8.  As soon as that's done, we'll start pushing out 11.8 builds.

  • Flash Help Not Updating on Web

    I've uploaded a Flash help project to our web site. But the
    latest information is NOT showing up, no matter how many times I
    click refresh or clear out the associated cached files. I've even
    deleted all the items on the server and re-uploaded the entire
    project. I've verified that the file sizes and dates are
    identical...
    Yet the browser is showing an older version.
    Any else experienced this? And how do I fix it? It's
    happening in both IE and FF.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hi Jared
    Are you certain that the server has been updated? I've been
    in a few development environments where you uploaded initially to a
    staging server. Then after a certain period of time, the staging
    server would update to one or more production servers. So depending
    on the timing as well as the server you are accessing at the time
    (Important to note that, as load balancing and whatnot can present
    different servers depending on the load) you may see that help has
    updated properly on one server and the next page refresh shows it
    hasn't yet updated to the other.
    Things to ponder... Rick

  • Flash object not updating (Captivate 6)

    I'm using a flash object on one of my slides. This is a help file. The file was created in Captivate, published, and then I'm putting the flash object onto a slide. When this slide is referenced, the flash file plays. It's a few static screens with forward and back buttons. The issue is that on one of the screens, the wrong text was inserted. I fixed the text, re-published, deleted the flash object from the slide, and put the new one there instead. But when I run the project, it still shows the old version, with the wrong text. I'm not sure why this is. The source file was changed and updated. I've tried restarting the computer in case it's being help in memory, but still, it keeps showing the old version with the wrong text.

    I tried adding a random button to the file, publishing, and using it again. This time, the button didn't show up, but the text updated. So I deleted it and tried the original file again. Still showing incorrect text. I opened the file, added a button, saved it, deleted the button, republished, reinserted the flash file, and now it works. So maybe there have to be changes saved for the file to update? Not really sure how it worked, just glad that it did.

  • Flash CS6 Not Updating, Video Events

    Are others having the same problem as me, Updating Flash and other apps in CS6? Followed some "Known Issues" and updated my Flash Help but still the link doesn't work inside Flash. I keep getting an error...
    Flash Pro CS6 Help Update
    Update is not applicable. Error Code: U44M1P28
    Another issue was the VideoEvents. I use video in all my apps and to perform a simple addEventListener(VideoEvent.READY, myFunction) doesn't work. I think Adobe was a little early in releasing their CS6 apps.
    Comments greatly appreciated.

    Hi,
    issue 1:
    The 'Update is not applicable' error might occur if you had installed any adobe pre-release/beta software on your machine earlier and have not uninstalled or the uninstallation was not complete. Uninstalling your CS6 software and reinstalling the same would help you surpass this error and it will let you use the software updates without any issues.
    You may consider using the creative suite cleaner tool available at http://www.adobe.com/support/contact/cscleanertool.html for this purpose.
    issue 2:
    This looks like an issue if we use import fl.video.*
    Instead if you could use it directly in the listener like
    myFLVPlayback.addEventListener(fl.video.VideoEvent.READY, readyHandler);
    may help you overcome such circumstances.
    Let me know if the above is of any help to you.
    Thanks!

  • Fireworks Flash slideshow not working

    Can anyone see whats wrong with  this page?  It looks as though its not finding the images.
    http://www.ratatattheatre.co.uk/images/performance/slideshow/gallery.html
    Its fine on  the local drive, so I'd assume that I've not uploaded all the necessary  files, except that I created the whole show in one folder ('slideshow')  so that contains all the images, the xml and script files etc - I've  uploaded the whole folder in one go so can't see what could be missing.
    I've used Fireworks to build script slideshows before but not the Flash ones so am not familiar with the code - I really don't understand why its working on the local drive but not online.
    Thanks!

    Yes.
    it returned AVM1 . So I gess FW  generated an AS2.
    Is it possible to set FW to export swf in AS3?
    or the only solution is to redo all my project into as2?
    The latest would be a painstaking job, once i dont know as2 , only intermediate as3.
    appreciate your help,
