View Full Version : plugin inconsistencies

Has any-one else had problems with inconsistencies between the Netscape & M$-IE flash plugins?

I have made a movie that works perfectly in netscape and works sometimes in IE.. (it involves loading xml data and attaching multipule movieclips) I think it must be something to do with M$ using activeX for their plugin..??

anyone else had problems like this?

I've never experienced any inconsistencies which didn't come down to my own programming faults, except in the case of fscommands which are an exception rather than a rule. perhaps it's the XML... I dunno, I don't use XML.

I have found some problems with using Front Page but again it came down to HTML scripting errors on my part...What are you using to upload your movies?

no uploading necessary I am running my own apache server..

I may have found the problem.
I am running a dual processor machine, which I think may be causing synchronisation problems. To test my theroy I installed vmware and win2000 (using only one of my processors) and it seems to work sweet.

The problem only seems to occur on Internet Explorer, It works on Netscape 4 & 6 and on Linux so I think it's the fault of m$'s activeX plugins.. oh well it's not my code that's the problem.

Great TS I have a dual server too maybe I should run some test on it. Thanks for the insight.
