Easily Embed FLV Files for Viewing
So after two hours and seven failed attempts to upload a watchable version of my One Day on Earth video, I found one that works pretty well.
First, upload your FLV file to your website: you’ll need it there to access with the player.
Once you’ve done that, insert this code into your html body:
Don’t want to type that out? Here:
<object classid=”clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000″ codebase=”http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,0,0″ width”WIDTH” height=”HEIGHT” id=”VideoPlayer” align=”middle”> <param name=”allowScriptAccess” value=”*” /> <param name=”allowFullScreen” value=”true” /> <param name=”movie” value=”http://www.platipus.nl/flvplayer/download/1.0/FLVPlayer.swf?video=LOCATION OF FLV FILE” /> <param name”quality” value=”high” /><param name=”bgcolor” value=”#ffffff” /> http://www.platipus.nl/flvplayer/download/1.0/FLVPlayer.swf?video=strongLOCATIONOFFLVFILE/strong </object>
Yes, it’s a bit of a mess. There’s a lot of variables that go along with embeds. Lucky for you, the only ones we need to change are the width, height, and file location. I even typed in bold where those go. Just put in the width and height of the video and it stretches to fit. Easy, right?
