Flash4 imbedding and posting
I am looking for some information on posting and imbedding Flash files in an HTML page. I am new to Flash. The images are much better and smoother than a .gif animation. So much more can be done also.
My question is how do I embed or get the plugin for the Flash Player (for the client) and how do I put the flash file in the page?

How to use FLASh in HTML
After you have edited and saved your flash file, the quickest way to see the code necessary to display Flash files in an HTML page is to view the file in a browser from the Flash application using the following commands: FILE:PUBLISH PREVIEW:HTML then when the file opens in the browser, view the source code. Copy the Object code lines into your html page and adjust the file locations as necessary.
See the example below:
ID=Movie1 WIDTH=550 HEIGHT=400>
<PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="Movie1.swf"> <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high> <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#FFFFFF> <EMBED src="Movie1.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#FFFFFF WIDTH=550 HEIGHT=400 TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"></EMBED>
Hope this helps,
