Thread: Transparent flash in Firefox

    Transparent flash in Firefox


    I'm working on a website, you can see it here:

    You can see I made some flash animations, and if you see it in Internet Explorer you can see that the flash animations are transparent, and the HTML background is behind them.

    The problem is that this command:

    <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />

    does not work in Firefox. The flash animations appear without transparency. Does anyone knows if it CAN appear with tranparency in Firefox?

    Very thanks

    when you use <embed src="name.swf" ... add wmode="transparent"
    HTML Code:
    <embed src="name.swf" wmode="transparent" width="100" height="100" ... ></embed>
    PHP Code:
    <zip> echo this; </zip

    I was having this problem as well, it's a simple fix. When you publish from flash it creates this code:

    HTML Code:
    <object id="FlashID" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="868" height="700">
        <param name="movie" value="lookbookfinal.swf" />
        <param name="quality" value="high" />
        <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
        <param name="swfversion" value="" />
        <!-- This param tag prompts users with Flash Player 6.0 r65 and higher to download the latest version of Flash Player. Delete it if you don’t want users to see the prompt. -->
        <param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />
        <!-- Next object tag is for non-IE browsers. So hide it from IE using IECC. -->
        <!--[if !IE]>-->
        <object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="lookbookfinal.swf" width="868" height="700">
          <param name="quality" value="high" />
          <param name="wmode" value="transparent" />
          <param name="swfversion" value="" />
          <param name="expressinstall" value="Scripts/expressInstall.swf" />
          <!-- The browser displays the following alternative content for users with Flash Player 6.0 and older. -->

    in dreamweaver if you change the window mode using the properties panel it only changes the wmode for the first param tag. Just go into the code and change the wmode for the second tag to transparent and it will work in Firefox.

    PS- I am a lowly newb, not a superhuman transpersonalist web design uber genius, so if I have used the wrong language to describe the solution, or made some other grave error, please forgive me, and turn your ray guns on tickle.
