How do I add a Flash video to my site?

f you would like to add a flash movie to your website, this article will show you how to do so. The first thing you must do is upload the flash *.swf file to your website. This must be done through your store’s FTPaccess and the file should be uploaded to the main /web folder.

Once uploaded, you can add your embed code to the page(s) where you’d like to display the video. If you do not have flash code then you can use the following:

<object classid=”clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000″ codebase=”,0,28,0″ width=”400″ height=”325″>
<param name=”movie” value=”movie.swf” />
<param name=”quality” value=”high” />
<embed src=”movie.swf” quality=”high” pluginspage=”” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” width=”400″ height=”325″></embed>

Make sure that you specify the correct path to the *.swf file as well as the correct width and height for the media. Once you have done this your flash video should play on the site.

A better approach may be to upload your videos to YouTube or Google Video and placing the embed code onto your site. This will help reduce bandwidth and storage issues you may experience from having a a flash video play directly from your site.
