Why my ad banner won't show?
Ad banner can only be JPG or SWF format, the following formats are not allowed: gif, png, bmp, psd. etc. due to the macromedia regulation that only JPG or SWF can be externally inserted to flash SWFs.
For jpg format, it has to be non-progressive mode. If not, please use a software like acdsee to convert it. eg: open your jpg in acdsee, then File -> Save as, choose options in popup dialog and in the option of encoding, DON'T check Progressive, then save jpg. Done.
For gif banner, convert it to SWF first in this way: import it to macromedia flash and export it as SWF.
