Hi there. So I'm putting together a site using iWeb and I know you can link to a YouTube flash video with the widgets function (Which they kept telling me at the Apple Store) but is there a way that I can embed my own Flash (.flv or .swf) files in iWeb so I don't have the YouTube logo on my flash videos? I'd rather have flash videos than Quicktime since more people can view it.

Thanks for the help!

Flash on i Web

I tried this months ago and it didn't work. I think he improved the directions or else I got a little smarter - but it worked. Thanks so much!

I've been to that link and tried every which way I can think of to get it to work with no success. I started out by putting my swf on iDisk, but since I was unsure of the correct URL/path to reach it and tried several attempts with www.mac.com and www.me.com, none of which worked, I moved it to my public folder, which still didn't work. Can anyone enlighten me?

If you visit your site the top of the window says - web.me.com/. When I did it it was web.mac.com and that is still working for me.

This is what I used "http://web.mac.com/raisinkids/docs/ireadmusic.swf" but if I were doing it today I'd use http://web.me.com/... Don't forget to do it in both places.

Here's a copy of my code:

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11CF-96B8-444553540000" id="obj1"
codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/ flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,40,0" border="0" width="558" height="488"><param name="movie" value="http://web.mac.com/raisinkids/docs/ireadmusic.swf"><param name="quality" value="High"><embed src="http://web.mac.com/raisinkids/docs/ireadmusic.swf" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" name="obj1" width="186" height="163"></object>

Notice the size difference from after "border=0" compared to at the end. The first is the size of my swf screen and at the bottom I can make it any size I want. I was also able to make a scaleable version using a link with new window checked and this: (without the xx's)

xxhttp://www.raisinxxkids.com/images_global/ireadmusic.swf

I put it on a weblog also changing the size.

If you need more information I'm nancyxxraisinkids.com with an@ instead of the xx. However I'm pretty quick at deleting mail if I don't recognize it and also only check it now and then.

Mine is a fairly long interactive flash file; I was so amazed that it worked.
I suppose you know that raisinkids is my apple user name and not the site name.
