I was able to embed the demo Cooliris Wall in a test page by adding the code provided at the site:
<object id="o" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" width="570" height="338"><param name="movie" value="http://apps.cooliris.com/embed/cooliris.swf?feed=api%3A%2F%2Fwww.flickr. com%2F" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><embed type="application/x-shockwave-flash" src="http://apps.cooliris.com/embed/cooliris.swf?feed=api%3A%2F%2Fwww.flickr.co m%2F" width="570" height="338" allowFullScreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" /></object>
I don't know is your code is similar buy you can view the results here.
Thank you very much for your response.
Like you, I was able to successfully embed the Cooliris wall to access a flickr feed, however I was having problems adding a feed from my website when the SWF object is hosted in the Cooliris website.
I have somewhat bypassed the problem by downloading the SWF object to a folder on my website and accessing it from there in my embedded code. This solution goes around the need for the crossdomain.xml in the root folder of the web.me.com web server (which we don't have access).
I too am curious as to how Juan was able to get it to work.
I copied the url listed in the embed code: http://apps.cooliris.com/embed/cooliris.swf
into my browser. It opened the cooliris.swf site in full screen mode. I then saved the page within my browser which saved it as cooliris.swf. I then put that file in a folder on my iDisk. I changed the url in the embed code to: http://<link folder on my iDisk went here>/cooliris.swf
I was able to reference that .swf file instead of the http://apps.cooliris.com/embed/cooliris.swf one. All seemed to work fine, until I tried to access one of my galleries rss feeds using the cooliris viewer. I still received the message saying I needed the crossdomain.xml file.
If you put the cooliris.swf file in your iDisk then the photo feeds must be in in iDisk too; I believe the feeds should access any folders in ../Web/SItes.
In my case, I have my pics, thumbs files in 2 different folders in ../web/sites/iweb as well as the rss file in the parent folder of those 2 folders. In my feed file, I reference the pics and thumbs with actual links to them like, <link>http://web.me.com/user-id/iweb/viewers/images/pic1.jpg</link>.
Hope this helps.
