If I have MP3's, Flash videos (FLVs) or animations (SWFs) in my course, they do not function correctly when I Preview or Publish the course in some browsers. Why is this and what is the solution?
Flash Player security helps ensure that content played back in Flash Player can't access information on your computer without your knowledge or permission. Flash Player determines if content is trusted for local playback by checking a list of trusted content stored on your computer. Local content can be designated as trusted in one of two ways:
- By adding specific content or directories to a list of trusted files, through the Global Security Settings panel.
- By adding specific content or directories to a list of trusted files, in the Flash Player Settings Manager, accessed by right-mouse clicking on your video or animation in your published content, clicking Global Settings, selecting the Advanced tab, then clicking Trusted Location Settings.
Via either the Global Security Settings panel, or the Flash Player Settings Manager, you can designate specific content or even directories as trusted by manually registering locations with Flash Player.
The easiest way to set this up to enable both Previewed and Published content to work correctly, is to designate the C:\ drive as trusted. Alternatively, for increased security, you can specify the specific folder you will be publishing content to, or the temporary folder Luminosity Studio uses for previewing content.
