shockwave plugin not working

Postby tytus » Thu Jul 02, 2009 4:11 pm

I am using Gloria with Firefox 3.0.11 (default). I was trying to display the following page
but the firefox complains about missing plugin for (application x-director). Subsequently I went to adobe test website:
and discovered that the top part of the test (adobe shockwave player) does not work. I am usingShockwave Flash 10.0 r22. Does anybody know how to fix it?

Shockwave does not natively work on Linux, but apparently can be made to work using Wine:

Very few good web developers use Shockwave in web pages due to the fact it only works under Windows or Mac OS's. I personally never return to web pages with shockwave and always send an email to the webmaster requesting they use Flash instead.
