    Flash Player and HTML

    Level 7
      Client is looking to display some videos and information within a flash
      player. Since flash files cannot be read well by search engines, it is
      possible to have the flash player generate either an html/text or RSS file
      along with the video file? Thus I would anticipate that when a video and
      information about say an Inn is created/published that an html/text/rss file
      is also generated that describes what is in the video file?

      Is this possible? If it is, can someone please point me to some
      documentation?

      Thanx

      David

          No. Flash Player cannot render or generate a file. To create files you
          would need the assistance of a serverside script such as cfm, php, asp, cgi
          or perl.

          You can manually input into the html code the text and any other information
          you like that is used in the swf just before the object tag.

          <!--url's used in the movie-->
          <!--text used in the movie-->
          <object ...
