Self hosting of course

Hi,

We doing a test of articulate to see if its a fit for some of the work we want to do. We have a web application currently running with user details etc. We want to have some training courses. When we create the course and then go publish to web, it creates a really complicated html page doing checking for IE5 to Nescape (Is there anyone still using netscape???) etc

What I want to do is be able to create a simple class object setup to get it to point at our content hosted in amazon s3 so that the player loads the content and the user can play the course. I must as I can figure out it has to be something like this:

   <object classid="clsid: D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,79,0" width="100%" height="100%" id="player" align=""> 

               <param name="movie" value="player/playershell.swf">

                <param name="quality" value="best"> <param name="scale" value="show all"> 

                <param name="menu" value="false">

                <param name="FlashVars" value="vBgColor=0x6c6c6c&vFSCommand=false&vAOSupport=false&rqPresentationID=vCEme8HJKZpJc4W&rqStartSlide=1&link=file%3A/">

                <embed width="100%" height="100%" src="player/playershell.swf" name="player" quality="best" scale="show all" align="" flashvars="vBgColor=0x6c6c6c&vFSCommand=false&vAOSupport=false&rqPresentationID=vCEme8HJKZpJc4W&rqStartSlide=1&link=file%3A/" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" swliveconnect="true" menu="false">

                </object>

II cant get this to work. I assume I need to add the correct flashvars and link the correct javascript files. If anyone could help me on this it would be great.

'm not familiar with flash at all. Would this not be similiar to flowplayer http://flowplayer.org/demos/installation/index.html

Thanks in advance

You've got this prior to the class?

if (AC_FL_RunContent == 0) {
        alert("This page requires AC_RunActiveContent.js.");
    } else {
        AC_FL_RunContent( 'codebase','http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,0,0','width','100%','height','100%','id','player','align','middle','src','flash/player','quality','high','bgcolor','#333333','name',player','allowscriptaccess','sameDomain','allowfullscreen','false','pluginspage','http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer','movie','flash/player' ); //end AC code
    }

In the above example I am looking in a flash folder in the same directory as the page.

Also make sure you have the AC_RunActiveContent.js on your site.
