    Hi to all,
    My problem is when I upload the .swf file it's there and works on a PC I can see my site but when I try to view it on my Mac it is downloading automatically the .swf file.

    Thanks!

    The fact that you can see the .swf file from a PC means that Fetch has done its job -- the file is intact, and in the right place.

    As for why the site isn't showing up on a Mac, it may indicate that the browser is missing a Flash plugin, or that the web server doesn't know about .swf files. If you post the URL of the page I'll take a look and see what I can find out.

    Thanks,

    Hi,
    My web site is
    www3.sympatico.ca/nlaforest
    We can see the first page , it is when you click to go to the second page that the proplem is appearing.

    Thanks,

    When I click the link to the second page I see a Flash page (this is on an OS X Mac running Safari). But when I try it from Internet Explorer I get a downloaded file instead of seeing the Flash page in the browser. My guess is that your web server does not know to identify .swf files as Flash (i.e. as MIME type application/x-shockwave-flash). You should contact the server administrator to have them add that support, or tell you how you can do it for yourself.

    For more information see: http://www.macromedia.com/support/flash/ts/documents/tn4151.html

    Thanks,
