- couldn't load .swf file in chrome/safari, it would just download (copying) the file
- couldn't embed the .swf file in an .html file: whether or not I used the full pathname, or just the filename, putting the .html file in the same folder as the .swf... Chome would give me a flash error, "It may have been moved or deleted.", and safari would load a blank page.
Solution for me was to download Adobe's Flash Player Projector (for mac), available here:
and load the .swf file using that.
Here is the direct link:
