Inserting Flash Movies into Dreamweaver Documents

In keeping with consistency and intuitiveness, inserting Flash movies into a Web page is similar if not the same as inserting images, video, and audio. To insert a Flash movie into a web page, follow these steps:

1.
Open the index.htm page.

2.
Highlight the text Insert Flash Movie Here and press Delete. Keep your cursor in this same cell.

3.
Choose Insert, Media, Flash. The Select File dialog appears.

4.
In the Select File dialog, browse to the Media folder and select the movie.swf file. Click OK.

Note

Flash movies are typically saved as FLA files in Windows and as MOV files on a Mac. To use a Flash file in a web page, the FLA/MOV file must be exported from Flash as a Shockwave Flash file (SWF).

The new movie appears in the web page similar to Figure 20.1.
