Flash Embedded in HTML
After making a Flash movie you choose File > Save As from the top menu to save your movie. Save the file as "Somefilename.fla".
To embed the Flash movie you just made into an HTML page, you should go back to your Flash program and do the following steps:
Choose File > Open. Open a Flash movie you have made.
Choose File > Export Movie.
Name the file "somefilename.swf". Choose the location where the file is to be stored (in your Web folder). Click OK.
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="somefilename.swf" width="550" height="400">
Note: 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.
Note: 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 Netscape recognizes the <embed> tag and ignores the <object> tag.
Type in the address of the HTML file in your browser and look at your first Flash movie.
