How to embed flash animations

Postby Jeff Johnson » Tue 16 Dec 2008 7:54 pm

The question was raised about how to embed flash animation here on UCC.

This tutorial uses the following example video that PW posted: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EBe2Um9Om3w
To the right of the video, you can see where it says "URL" and "Embed". First, I copy the text from the "Embed" box, which in this example is the following:
Code: Select all
<object width="425" height="344"><param name="movie" value="http://www.youtube.cm/v/EBe2Um9Om3w&hl=en&fs=1"></param><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true"></param><param name="allowscriptaccess" value="always"></param><embed src="http://www.youtube.com/v/EBe2Um9Om3w&hl=en&fs=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowscriptaccess="always" allowfullscreen="true" width="425" height="344"></embed></object>

Even though this looks complicated, there are clearly labeled parts:
  • The width= parameter denotes the width in pixels.
  • The height= parameter denotes the height in pixels.
  • The value= parameter denotes the Internet address of the movie.
Look carefully and you will see all of these in the above code that I copied from Youtube. So, in this example:
  • width = 425 pixels
  • height = 344 pixels
  • value = http://www.youtube.cm/v/EBe2Um9Om3w&hl=en&fs=1

With those three pieces of information, I then embed the movie using the [flash] bbCode, the format of which is:
[flash=width,height]value[/flash]

Like the following:
Code: Select all
[flash=425,344]http://www.youtube.com/v/EBe2Um9Om3w&hl=en&fs=1[/flash]


That results in the following:



Of course, please adhere to the forum rules and only post flash animations that are strictly family-friendly. :mrgreen:

Now if I could only figure out how to embed some photos....

Embedding photos is easy. Use the "Img" button in the toolbar above the reply text box. Then paste the photo's internet link between the brackets like this:

Code: Select all
[img]https://utahconcealedcarry.com/styles/prosilver/imageset/UCC-Logo-IntegratedBG-NoURL.jpg[/img]


Which shows up like this:

If the picture you have isn't online, but rather on your computer, it must be resized to fit the dimensions set forth by the forum (800 pixels wide by 600 pixels tall or smaller). There are many ways to do this. Windows has a built in picture editor that allows common resizes. For a beefier option that is still free, please Google: GIMP.

To post the picture from your computer, scroll down to the bottom of the reply page below "Save, Preview and Submit" buttons to the tabs entitled "Options" and "Upload attachment"

Click on the "Upload attachment" tab and browse for the file on your computer. Then click "Add the file". After that, click "Place inline" and it will be added into your post like this:

I hope that helps. Please PM if you have further questions or problems.
