Muse v3.2 won't place my Captivate 6 swf or html5 files. "Error encountered during import" error 0. Has anyone else solved this or a similar problem? What can I do? Suggestions welcome.

    You should be able to add Captivate 6 SWF file through Object -> Insert HTML option and using the below code. Replace the highlighted part with your file name and edit height and width as required. You would also need to upload captivate6_file.swf manually through FTP.

     

    <object width="800" height="600"

    classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"

    codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab# version=8,0,0,0">

    <param name="SRC" value="captivate6_file.swf">

    <embed src="captivate6_file.swf" width="800" height="600"></embed>

    </object>

     

    Thanks,

    Vinayak

    Hey Mark, you do not have to place the .SWF in your Muse project. Instead you need to manually upload the Captivate file to your server via any FTP client like Filezilla at the desired location and update the path in the code above referencing the file. I was able to reproduce the error message during my tests with a Captivate .SWF however this method worked!

     

    Thanks,

    Vinayak

    Just a note, you can also use the File -> Add Files for Upload option (instead of going the manual FTP way) and select your captivate6_file.swf for it to upload when you publish the site. The file would be uploaded to the /assets/ folder, so you might want to update the code to reference this file. Following this approach would allow you to preview the SWF playing in Muse's Preview mode as well.

     

    So in order to test this out, simply add the below code to a page through Object -> Insert HTML and add your .SWF file to Muse project using the Add Files for Upload option. Do not forget to change the .swf file name.

     

    <object width="800" height="600"

    classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"

    codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab# version=8,0,0,0">

    <param name="SRC" value="assets/captivate6_file.swf">

    <embed src="assets/captivate6_file.swf" width="800" height="600"></embed>

    </object>

     

    Thanks,

    Vinayak

    I inserted the following HTML code that I gleaned from

    http://forums.adobe.com/message/5087131  -

    Can't Place Captivate 6 swf or html5 File into Muse v3.2.

    Re: Can't Place Captivate 6 swf or html5 File into Muse v3.2.

    The code is:

     

    <object width="1024" height="768"

    classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"

    codebase="http://www.learndurkin.com/assets/infographics-history.swf/ version=8,0,0,0">

    <param name="SRC" value="assets/captivate6_file.swf">

    <embed src="assets/captivate6_file.swf" width="1024" height="768"></embed>

    </object>

     

    I also uploaded the .swf file using the "Add File" function. When I publish, I get a blank white box with no video that plays. Any suggestions? Have I named the file incorrectly in the HTML code?

    I feel like an idiot. I keep pounding this day after day with no solution. Hope I am writing in the correct forum.

    The code is incorrect, leave the value for codebase attribute as is and modify the param src value with the file name (as highlighted under).

     

    <object width="800" height="600"

    classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"

    codebase="http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab# version=8,0,0,0">

    <param name="SRC" value="assets/captivate6_file.swf">

    <embed src="assets/captivate6_file.swf" width="800" height="600"></embed>

    </object>

     

    Thanks,

    Vinayak

    This was exactly the advice I needed to solve the same problem - thanks! Note to others - change the code to point to your actual SWF in BOTH places it occurs in that code. This is inelegant for an application that's supposed to be for non-coders, but I assume that Muse will evolve to accommodate SWFs better in the future.

    Hi Vinayak, that works.  But I can also create an html5 file from captivate.  Is it possible to use this instead of the swf and what would be the advantages/disadvantages please?

    I don't see any dis-advantages if you go that way. You just need to make sure that all dependent files, if any, are uploaded to their relative location in order to get it working after publish.

     

    Thanks,

    Vinayak

    Muse user here - ie the no coding person who makes websites very occasionally.  So if you wouldn't mind, can you please post a little snippet of code to insert like you did for the SWF.

    Thanks.

    <object width="800" height="600"

    classid="clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000"

     

    <param name="SRC" value="captivate6_file.htm">

    <embed src="captivate6_file.htm" width="800" height="600"></embed>

    </object>

     

     

    Am I close?  where the htm file is the html5 file created by captivate at save.
