How to insert your Flash movies into your website

After creating a Flash movie you normally go to File ~>Save As from the top menu to save your movie. Save the file as "yourmovie.fla".

To embed the Flash movie into an HTML page, you should go back to your Flash progam and:

  1. choose file ~> Open the Flash movie
  2. choose file ~> Export Movie
  3. Name the file "yourmovie.swf". Choose the location where the file is to stored (in your Web folder) and click OK.
  4. Open the HTML page where you want to insert your Flash movie. Insert this code:

<object width="550" height="400">

<param name="movie" value="somefilename.swf">

<embed src="/support/somefilename.swf" width="550" height="400">



The width and height tags specify the frame of the movie, which you will need to adjust accordingly. This is the minimum code you need to embed a Flash movie in a browser. A broken icon will appear on the Web page if the user does not have the Flash plug-in installed.

Hello. I have flash version 18,0,0,209 installed on ym computer. When I try and upload a flash file via html editor it works (is visible once saved) in I.E. 11, but when I use chrome, or firefox the flash doesnt load. The rest of the page loads normally, i put the cursor over where the video should be and right click and all it says is, "Movie not loaded...". Any idea as to what might be going on here?
