Hello.

I'm trying to find a way of putting a Flash clip into iWeb (ver. 1.1.2).

Is there a way to do this?

I'm trying to get over the problem where QT doesn't show up on many Windows owners machines and it was suggested to me that Flash should work.

To try it out, I've converted a WMV file to Flash (with VisualHub) and I now have a .swf file which iWeb seems to have some difficulty with.

Can someone please give me some guidance here.

Thanks Mitcherooney

I suspect you may need to use the HTML Snippet option to plug in the HTML needed to set that up. I'm sure you could find a sample of the code via Google. I haven't done this with iWeb, but done it on a hand coded pages such as this at the top of the page.

When asking questions, post the version of your software. You'll receive better answers.

Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

If it is a video, use the option to output it as flv in VisualHub. With that, I asume that there should be no problems with iWeb.

Well, it seems you have figured out the way to make flash videos, now getting them in to iWeb

I would place a regular quicktime file in the place you want the flash video in, use the mov file you created earlier. This will place a video on the page in the place you want.

Next, you will have to open up the page in a text editor (text edit or Text Wrangler) and find the code that deals with the quicktime movie, it should look something like this

Quote:
<OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:02BF25D5-8C17-4B23-BC80-D3488ABDDC6B" WIDTH="320"
HEIGHT="256" CODEBASE="http://www.apple.com/qtactivex/qtplugin.cab">
<PARAM name="SRC" VALUE="sample.mov">
<PARAM name="AUTOPLAY" VALUE="true">
<PARAM name="CONTROLLER" VALUE="true">
<EMBED SRC="sample.mov" WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="256" AUTOPLAY="true"
CONTROLLER="true"
PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.apple.com/quicktime/download/">
</EMBED>
</OBJECT>
SWap that with code that inserts an FLV file

Quote:
<object type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="http://flv-player.net/medias/player_flv_mini.swf" width="320" height="240">
<param name="movie" value="http://flv-player.net/medias/player_flv_mini.swf" />
<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" />
<param name="FlashVars" value="flv=http%3A//flv-player.net/medias/KyodaiNoGilga.flv" />
</object>
Bold is the path to your flv file, see if that works

Also note: enter the size of your file in the code as well, it should be the same as the quiktime movie size, if you created an FLV file from that Quicktime movie
