I have an SWF with flv video that loads through an external loader swf. the SWF's keep hanging part way through loading. Same problem regardless of using the direct SWF or the loader SWF, the loader hangs at xx percent while the direct SWF is just blank white. The file hangs and often locks up the browser (mozilla & IE), I have to close all instances to regain browser function. Same problem from different computer. Sometimes mozilla would hang and not freeze but when I would refresh it would act like the swf didnt exist. Once I cleared the cache it would load half way and hang again.
It all works fine on an IIS server, but not on the Linux one. mime.types right? Well the swf type is in by default, I added video/x-flv. I also did AddType application/x-shockwave-flash swf from the httpd.conf file, this made things worse actually. Seems like after I did that I couldnt view any SWF's on the server. I sent a message to the hosting company, but I know they're just going to try and make this out as a flash problem not server... Oh, and yes I'm uploading in binary on FTP.
AHH! Any ideas?
P.S. I can't give a link to the problem.. sorry.
