How did you designate it as a scrollable frame? If it was using the Overlays panel, it won't work as exported as FXL or PDF. Nor will it work for PDF.
Ajarproductions does have a FREE extension panel that can automate the steps to make a scrolling frame for "Universal" output. Ajar Productions » Universal Scrolling Frames for InDesign This is like buying pre-made dough to bake for bread.
You can also use the steps outlined by Chad Chelius here http://epubsecrets.com/adding-a-scrolling-frame-in-fxl-and-publish-online.php But that's the manual way. That's like grinding your own flour, churning the butter, and creating the dough to bake the bread.
Sandee Cohen is an acknowledged expert on producing interactive documents from InDesign, she's even produced an amazing book on the subject: http://www.amazon.com/Creating-Animations-Adobe-InDesign-Step/dp/0134176111/ref=sr_1_4?ie= UTF8&qid=1452506486&sr=8-4&keywords=sandee+cohen
I wonder why she didn't mention DPS, there's even an Adobe Forum devoted to it.
Because the OP was not using DPS and given the price of it, I wouldn’t be recommending it to anyone but an enterprise customer.
Thanks for the "plug". However, it seemed that the OP (as Bob Levine said) wasn't using DPS. I assumed it was export to ePub. So I thought I'd steer the OP to what could be done there.
So, OP, you should know that the scrolling text in the Overlays panel is used, primarily for DPS. However, there is also a paid product, called in5 that can convert your InDesign document into an HTML5 document that can use scrolling text. It is sold by ajarproductions.
Paste what? Export how? Job what?
I know a good magician never reveals his tricks, but your trick isn't "Magic." It's just frustrating if you don't explain to us how it's done.
The link you provide http://kerntiff.co.uk/ is kinda worthless as it goes to a missing web page.
I was able to get to http://www.kerntiff.co.uk. And while the company looks like they create a lot of plug-ins for InDesign, there is nothing that indicates a plug-in of "Paste in place, job done. Nothing else to do. Magic."
I hope you realize that your post is more frustrating than magic. I only hope the OP didn't get turned off completely by your cryptic "solution" which solves nothing.
I know I'm turned off to have anything to do with kerntiff.co.uk and will probably ignore any links in your posts.

PIckory, thanks to tell us more!
What I see, it's that it can be done! this is truly interesting!
if you inspect the HTML code of Pickory's example, you can see a note of "BakerExport", an extra InDesign plug-in:
<!--Produced using Kerntiff Publishing Systems Ltd. BakerExport--> <!-- DEMONSTRATION SOFTWARE. NOT FOR COMMERCIAL USE -->
So I think, this effect cannot be achieved by some simple steps using plain InDesign and creating an embedded HTML item with entering some code.
Ok. I could also be wrong. Very likely.
I'd test the script by Justin Putney first…
