    Question can Flash be uploaded to any host?

    Hi,

    Because flash is client side, am I right in believing that a flash file can be uploaded to any web-host?

    Cheers, Lee

    I have never heard of a SWF file not being able to run on a host. Since it is controlled by the browser (user end) it would be only blocked if the user has something disabled in their browser.

    I can't think of one that doesn't or a good reason not too. It is widely used even if not as an entire sites many "plain" sites have Flash "snippets" here & there.
