In the test page I don't have shockwave animation
Strange it works fine for me in both v2 beta and stable 1.3. Seems strange but try uninstalling shockwave and reinstalling it through firefox because that's what i did and like i said i have no problems and i can see the animations on both test pages.
Wondering if its a system setting rather than a browser one.

I got it to run in firefox. But still no go in Chrome and Slimjet. Are you using the latest version of Shockwave player 12.1.3r153?

I got shockwave to work on some other computers. I guess there is something wrong with the shockwave installation on my development PC. I reinstalled the plugin, cleaned the browsing data but nothing helped.

Windows 7. I'll try it on the wife's laptop which is win8 and report back.

Try "disabling hardware acceleration"
