How to embed flash intro in HTML


There are several methods of embedding Flash elements into HTML pages.

1st method:

To embed the Flash intro that you just edited into an HTML page, you should go back to your Flash program and do the following steps:

Step 1
Choose “File > Open”. Open the Flash intro you have modified.

Step 2
Choose “File > Export Movie” or press “CTRL + SHIFT + ALT + s”

Step 3
Name the file “intro.htm”. Choose the location where the file is to be stored (in your HTML folder). Click “OK”.

Step 4
Open the HTML page where you want to insert your Flash movie. Insert this code:

<object classid=”clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000″
codebase=”http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0″ width=”700″
height=”322″>
<param name=”movie” value=”intro.htm”>
<param name=”quality” value=”high”>
<embed src=”intro.htm” quality=”high”
pluginspage=”http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” width=”700″
height=”322″></embed>
</object>

In the code above there is both an <embed> tag and an <object> tag. This is because the <object> tag is recognized by Internet Explorer, and Mozilla recognizes the <embed> tag and ignores the <object> tag. There are a few more attributes used: classID is an attribute to the <object> tag. It tells Internet Explorer to load the ActiveX plug-in if it is not installed. The plug-ins page is an attribute to the <embed> tag. It displays a link to the Shockwave download page if Netscape does not have it. A broken icon will appear on the Web page if the user does not have the Flash plug-in installed.

Step 5
Save the HTML file and run it in a browser window to preview the flash intro.

2 method:

The Flash program can generate both SWF movie and HTML page adding all the necessary attributes into the code for a flash intro:

Step 1
Choose “File > Open”. Open the Flash intro you have modified.

Step 2
Choose “File > Publish” or press “shift+F12″. Flash will now create the <object>, <param>, and
Choose “File > embed tags for you”. It will also create the classID and plug-ins page attributes.

Step 3
Open the HTML document that Flash created in a browser window to preview the flash intro.
