Shockwave plugin doesn't seem to work.


I downloaded the latest version of Shockwave for Linux 10.04, but I still can't seem to make some videos work. I've never had this kind of problem with Windows XP. On one site, visitors had to have 9.0 whatever in order to run videos, and I went to the shockwave site and downloaded the latest version, which was even newer then the one the site wanted. Still, every time I clicked on the 'S' logo in the video window, I still couldn't view anything. I know that the shockwave file downloaded in Linux because it said that the download was successful. Any help would be appreciated! Thanks!

Did you install it?
Downloading isn't enough.

Kind regards

Do you mean Shockwave or Flash? They aren't the same thing and there isn't a Shockwave plugin for Linux (at least not from Adobe and I don't know of a third-party one). If you're trying to view Shockwave content under Linux, I'm not sure what you can do about that (besides using a Windows browser in WINE, or something)..
