No video controls visible with .swf movie

KoffeeKat
I can see no video controls in my shadowbox when playing an .swf movie. The controls are there with other movie formats. Any suggestions or ideas why this could be?

Also, will shadowbox make it possible to play .mp4 movies on Firefox?

Thanks,
KoffeeKat

an swf isn't really a movie, it could have any flash content in, even a whole website, so the movie controls wouldn't be appropriate in many situations.  You could try encoding it as a flash video (flv) if you want it to play with jwplayer.

that's sort of what I was thinking, but didn't have an flv on hand to try it out.

Thanks!

I'm sure you could borrow the one off the homepage for testing purposes
