SWFs not playing correctly in Storyline but preview fine - HELP!

Nov 14, 2013

Hello all,

I have a course that I created using Articulate Presenter that contained a series of swfs.

They published and ran fine.

I have now taken those exact swfs and imported them into a Storyline couse.

The issue Im having is that some of the swfs play fine, but a handful either do not play at all, or stop part way thru the swf.

I get the swf to the slide using Insert->swf 

The Odd thing is that if I preview the Scene or Slide using the Preview-->This Slide or Preview->This Scene

All the swfs work fine.

However if I Preview-> Entire Project or Publish the project, then the swfs do not work.

Has anyone experienced this at all?

Any help would be great!

Good Afternoon, Rob.

First, please ensure that you're adhering to our Flash movie best practices.

Second, if you view a published Articulate Storyline quiz on your local hard drive or send it to someone else to view on their local hard drive, you'll encounter security restrictions from the computer, web browser, Flash Player, and network that'll cause various features of your content to fail.

To properly test your published content and share it with others, upload it to the environment for which it was published as described here.

If you're already following our best practices and testing your published content in its intended environment yet the problem persists, can you please share a copy of your .story project file with us so that we can take a closer look at the problem?  Thanks!
