    swf in Safari
    Hello everyone! I tried inserting a swf file on my site using various ways but in the end I've got it working everywhere but not in safari. In safari it does not show anything at all not even a white space. Is there a secret how to do this? Please help me. Thank you.

    ??????????????????? - ??????

    It is in Russian language.

    Maybe try Perian? I think I see your SWF. Even though support has been dropped - it still plays alot of files.

    I've already had Perian installed. But sadly having it installed does not help.

    I have Perian, the latest flash player and Flip 4 mac installed. VLC too - but I don't think that has a plugin for the browsers. So one of those is allowing me to see your SWF - I just don't know which one.

    That is strange because I also have Perian, Flip4mac, vlc and the latest adobe flash. May be you have some other additional software allowing you to see it?

    Those are the only codec type things that I know of installed on my machine. It worked in Chrome and Firefox as well.

    I had thought swf didn't work on the Mac - but somehow it is playing for me. This testpage also works for me
    SWF Test Page

    edit:It is definitely showing as Flash - as click to Flash blocks it - but as I click on it - the swf will play.

    The strange thing is that the test page works on my mac in safari fine also my swf works in opera, firefox, chrome on mac but not in safari. I don't have any problems with flash on other sites either.

    Don't know what to tell you - but the Flash works - assuming it is the one with the pictures of the families going by in slide show type format.

    It does take a while to load for me. Maybe 30 seconds or so before it starts playing.

    Works here also.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    Thanks everyone! I fixed it. Adblock blocked my swf. Could never expect it.

    Solved.
