Config Apache To Use Flash?

hi everyone,

this is also posted in the apache forum... i'm not sure if it's a flash issue or an apache issue so i'm posting twice. i'm using apache 1.3 on Mac OS X and i'm trying to enable apache to work with flash. the mime types are set in the httpd.conf file like this:

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1.  
  2.     #
  3.     # AddType allows you to tweak mime.types without actually editing it, or to
  4.     # make certain files to be certain types.
  5.     #
  6.     AddType application/x-tar .tgz
  7.     AddType application/x-shockwave-flash    swf
  8.     AddType application/futuresplash    spl
  9.  
  10.  
but it seems that my flash movies stall at the intro loading bar... the only way to play them is to right-click on the movie and click "play"... only after that will the loading bar start to move (if the preloader hasn't finished loading yet). Tthe movie does preload, but it doesn't display the preloader, nor will it start on its own even after the preloader finishes loading (still have to click play regardless)...

this happens in both Safari 2.0 and Firefox.

any ideas?
