First post here so forgive me if it's excessively detailed!
Just published my project (which contains interactive
elements and flv video clips) to Flash and I have now have a folder
containing the two .swf files, the flv files, .js file and the html
When I open the html file it works fine - the project plays
inside a pale green border that fills the browser window. I want to
embed the project into an existing webpage (or have a popup)
*without* the pale green border.
I've looked at the source code of the html file and I'm not
sure what, if anything, I should strip out. There is also no
reference in that html code to the .swf file (only the skin.swf
file) or any of the flv files. How does it know where to call them
Any help would be much appreciated.
The Captivate output files are a bit like a house of cards.
All elements are critical. Here's how they pan out.
You upload all the files to your server. Normally in the same
You point your user to the HTML file.
User clicks the link pointing to the HTML file and it loads
up into the browser.
The HTML file looks for the standard.js file. Assuming it is
found, more code is added to the HTML file.
The MainMovie_skin.SWF is then loaded into the browser
Internally, the MainMovie_skin.SWF knows to look for the
MainMovie.SWF and it loads up.
As each slide pointing to a .FLV is encountered, the .FLV is
loaded at that time and plays.
As for embedding into an existing page, you will need to sift
through the code for the Captivate created HTML file for clues. Are
you using a Web Development tool such as Dreamweaver, FrontPage or
Expression Web designer?
