e-card not good on PC

Forgive me but I seem to have been working on this for weeks, I have ‘created’ a little e-card in After effects, rendered it out as an .swf and tested it with a few friends and on macs it seems to work but on PC’s I send an email with a link to this address:

http://www.rogerburton.co.uk/e-mail-christmas%202008.html

when receivers “click here” on the mac a little bit of animated fairy dust appears and the words “Season’s Greetings” - on a PC (firefox or IE) just the Christmas “tree” and the blinking lights, I no not how to work out why it doesn’t work … any advice most welcome.

Regards Roger

Hi Roger.

I have not the foggiest why your e-card doesn’t work on a PC, but it’s
great on my Mac.

Here’s mine (which seems to work on Macs as well as PCeees)!

All the best for Christmas and New Year to all you fantastic Freewayers.

Excellent smartie pants … yours looks good … what is that ? is it “flurry” … there seems to be a little softness in the images which is nice, makes it look less digital … enjoy the rest of the weekend (and the “holidays”) Roger

I thought that maybe I’d solved it when I removed the Transition FX but still no good on PC in FFox or IE I’m afraid - I guess I’ll have to make the movie play once only (I wanted the video to loop in the background with flashing lights and the text to come on and stay ! Oh well plan B. Regards Roger
