How to Embed SWF Files in HTML


Small Web Format (SWF) files are frequently used to make interactive websites or videos. SWF files can be built using a variety of open and closed-source programs such as Adobe Flash, SWiSH Max4 and MXMLC. To make SWF files easily accessible to your website's visitors, you can embed the file within a HTML file. This will allow you to display SWF files on your website without changing the overall look and feel of your site.

Things You'll Need

  • HTML editor
  • Open the HTML file that you want to add your Flash file to in your favorite HTML editor.

  • Locate the "<body>" tag within the body of the HTML file.

  • Insert the following text below the "<body>" tag:

    <object width="500" height="250">

    <param name="movie" value="Flash_Movie/New_Flash_Movie.swf">

    <embed src="Flash_Movie/New_Flash_Movie.swf" width="500" height="250">



    Adjust the movie's width and height if needed, and change the file name and directory to match your SWF file's name and location.

  • Save the changes you just made to your HTML file. Close the HTML file.
