Here's my results:
IE - no problem at all - worked really well (it's a great learning object as well - can I have a copy for the Xerte Showcase area?)
GoogleChrome - slide 10 not working reliably - ok on refresh but not first time through. When it broke it also hung the table of contents feature.
FireFox - no problems.
Filesize (262kb) may be the issue if there's a dodgy connection but I've used bigger files myself and got away with it. File dimensions (765 x 643) might be an issue because it is being shrunk a lot to fit in the space but these are the wild guesses of a non technical person and I suspect the technical list - http://lists.nottingham.ac.uk/mailman/listinfo/Xerte - might have more considered answers :-)
An alternative way of doing slide 10 might be using a hotspot image connector to allow you more screen space and less file squashing to fit - like http://vle.jisctechdis.ac.uk/xerte/play_806

Subject: Media not showing in Blackboard
I've recently created my first Xerte objects using the sandbox and uploaded them into our Blackboard. When they're viewed through Blackboard a number of pictures fail to load (not always the same ones, though there are usual suspects which fail most often). They are generally OK viewed directly through the sandbox. Any suggestions as to what might be going on and how I can address this? Negotiations about setting up our own Xerte installation are ongoing and whilst it may be the ultimate solution it won't be a quick one!
They are consistently working better in Firefox than Chrome (and surprisingly well in IE), and taking off the auto-narrate seems to help in some instances.
An example is http://vle.jisctechdis.ac.uk/sandpit/play.php?template_id=4521. Slide 12 is a particularly frequent offender.
All suggestions gratefully received
