HTML incorrect for earlier SWFs published from Flash 5 by raymondbirch
Posted: 20 Aug 01

Users have the option in Flash 5 of publishing a Flash movie in an earlier SWF format such as Flash 4. However, when the HTML file created by Flash is previewed in Internet Explorer on Windows using the earlier Flash Player version, the browser will ask the viewer to download the Flash 5 Player.

The HTML file published using Flash's default HTML publishing template (Flash Only) contains an incorrect cab file version in the <OBJECT> tag.

One Solution:
Change the HTML code for the individual HTML file.

1  Open the HTML file in Dreamweaver.
2  Search for the following block of HTML code:

<OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="inport_set_property.swf">
<PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high>
<EMBED src="inport_set_property.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#FFFFFF WIDTH=550 HEIGHT=400 TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash";></EMBED>

3  The specific text you will need to locate is in bold red text above. Change the text from 5,0,0,0 to 4,0,0,0.  
4 Choose File > Save, to save your document.
