Seeing Black/White

  1. Make sure that you have Flash player installed for “other browsers.” Installation page: http://get.adobe.com/flashplayer/otherversions/
  2. Make sure that the playx_jw_url cvar on the server is set to http://playx.googlecode.com/svn/jwplayer/player.swf
  3. Make sure that the playx_host_url cvar on the server is set to http://sk89q.github.com/playx/host/host.html
  4. Go to http://sk89q.github.com/playx/host/host.html in your browser and check to see if it is working. (It is a black page.)
  5. Go to http://playx.googlecode.com/svn/jwplayer/player.swf in your browser and check to see if it tries to download something (don’t download it). Sometimes the site that hosts that file is unavailable.

If you are still having trouble, please post on the Facepunch thread for PlayX.

Crash Issues

Disable “Hardware Acceleration” in Flash Player. Right click a Flash movie outside Gmod and go to “Settings” to disable hardware acceleration.
