  1. I created a simple HTML page with a flash player using the FLV Playback component. The parameters I used were like so: skin: http://domain.com/flash/controls.swfsource: http://domain.com/videos/mymovie.flv The HTLM document is located like sohttp://domain.com/index.htmlThe problem I was noticing was when I'd go to http://domain.com the player worked great but when I went to http://www.domain.com it wouldn't load the flv or the skin.I tried switching the parameters to include www but that just swapped the issue so now it wouldn't load without the www. Then I setup the parameters to be relative to where I was storing the swf file. (Inside of the flash folder) skin: controls.swfsource: ../videos/mymovie.flv This worked for loading the flv but now the controls won't load.1. Why wouldn't the swf file locate the absolute location of the flv and controls?2. Why is the swf not able to locate the controls with relative locations?Thanks in advance.
  2. I just found the answer to my question with a little more searching.The solution is to create a php file like so <?header('Content-type: audio/mpeg');header('Content-Disposition: attachment; filename="audioclip.mp3"');?> Then just link to the php file <a href="download.php" target="_blank">Download MP3</a> Hope this helps someone else in the future.
  3. Thanks for the response Ingolme.I tried using type but it still tries playing the mp3 in the browser. I tested with Firefox and Safari.I'm looking for a solution similar to when you click a link and it pops up an alert asking if you want to "Run" or "Save" the file.
  4. I'm trying to create a link that would allow the user to download an mp3. I thought this would work <a href="clip.mp3">Download Here</a> but it just takes me to a seperate page that plays the mp3.I know you could just right click and save target as but I was hoping to make it easier for the user.I've been searching around for a few days with no luck. Any help out there?Thanks in advance.
