Serving Shockwave Flash Content

Shockwave Flash It is easy to include Shockwave Flash multimedia presentations on your web site. Using Flash content can add high-impact graphics, animation, and interactivity to your web site.

Updating Your Web Server MIME Types
You may need to add the following MIME types to your ~/www/conf/mime.types file:

application/x-shockwave-flash  swf cab
application/futuresplash       spl

NOTE: After you make changes to the mime.types file, you need to restart your Apache web server so that the changes are recognized. You can do this by connecting to your Virtual Server and executing the command restart_apache.
% restart_apache


Embedding Flash Content in a Web Page

In order to embed your filename.swf Flash content in a web page, include at least the following HTML code:

<OBJECT WIDTH="550" HEIGHT="400">
 <PARAM NAME="MOVIE" VALUE="filename.swf">
 <EMBED SRC="filename.swf">
 </EMBED>
</OBJECT>

The OBJECT tags are for Microsoft Internet Explorer and the EMBED tags are for Netscape Navigator/Communicator. Substitute the filename of your Flash content for filename.swf. You can adjust and add other parameters as you like.

Documentation
A great Intro to Flash tutorial is available at the Webmonkey: A How-to Guide for Web Developers site. Also see the Macromedia Flash site for examples and instructions.
