Website designers only! How can I put an swf file onto my website?

Asked by Theotherkid (889points) March 13th, 2009

I started web design and I can’t figure out how to add an swf file. And yes I’ve tried googling it. Nothing I found worked. I’m using notepad, and would prefer no additional software to put in the swf file.

You need to <embed> it something like this…

<object width=“550” height=“400”>
<param name=“movie” value=“somefilename.swf”>
<embed src=“somefilename.swf” width=“550” height=“400”></embed>

Replace the height & width with your file dimensions. If it doesn’t work, Google “embed SWF” and you’ll find more info.

Also, bookmark and make it your best friend. I find myself referencing it quite a bit!
