Embedding Flash (swf) files in Blogger

This is the code I use to embed the swf files in Blogger. I enter this through the edit HTML tab in the Create Post window. Replace the brackets, {} with the <> when you use it. I had to switch to brackets in order to show the actual code here.

{object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash
/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="420" height="420"}
{param name="movie" value="http://www.creativetony.com/swf/whackacat.swf"}
{param name=quality value=high}
{embed src="http://www.creativetony.com/swf/whackacat.swf" quality=high pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="420" height="420"}{/embed}{/object}"

I had to do a bit of tweaking on the original code I used to get it to play in both IE and Mozilla Firefox. If you are using Flash 8 there is an anti-aliasing process for the text not used in previous versions so a download of the Flash 8 player is required.

NOTE: THE MISSING END OBJECT TAG IS NOW INCLUDED. THANKS TO THOSE WHO POINTED IT OUT

Illustration Friday: Cat







Play Whack a Cat.

Ok, I know this is a pain, but this content requires the Macromedia Flash Player 8. If you do not have it, please click here (you're going to want to get it eventually anyway). Get Flash

I have to admit, this theme for IFriday had me stumped. Then, after visiting some of the other submissions, I got depressed--you folks are good. Anyway, I decided to have some fun with it so I developed this little game. I hope you enjoy it. Thanks to my son Nick Sarrecchia the III for letting me use his voice.

Please have your volume on and give this a sec or so to load.

You have to let it load to a screen that says 'Click here to Whack the Cat' with a picture of Clancy the cat in the upper corner. From there you can click to play Whack the Cat.

This may take about 1-2 minutes to load on a 56K Modem.

As always, your feedback is appreciated.
