This package fixes which prevents .swf movies from playing in Flash 10 when served from Plone.

Project description


Adobe Flash 10 introduced an additional security check such that it will only play files served with the “Content-Disposition: inline” header. Current versions of Plone do not set this header correctly for .swf files stored as ATFiles. (See for more information.)

This package corrects that by augmenting ATFile’s list of mimetypes that should be served with the inline content disposition.

This patch is no longer necessary in Plone 3.2.x

Note: This patch does not help with .swf files served by ATFlashMovie in Plone 3. To make those work, make sure you have ATFlashMovie 1.0.3.


This product has been tested in Plone 2.5 and Plone 3.x

If using buildout, simply add Products.Flash10Fix to your buildout’s list of eggs, rerun buildout, and restart Zope.

If not using buildout, unpack the product tarball in your Products directory and restart Zope.

No additional steps are required. If the patch was successful, you should see “Flash10Fix Patched the following classes: ATFile” on the console when running Zope in the foreground.


Thanks to James Nelson for the report and preliminary patch.
