I am a newbie with flash with less than a year of experience and this is my first post in this forum.
I recntly converted my web site from xhtml1.1 to html5 and when it came to flash I was a bit stumped.
I wanted also to keep away from making a http call for swfobject and use the html5 enviornment.
My web site is multi-lingual currently with/for English and German with French and Spanish to follow; the html5 used is simple and it W3C validates it as html5.
Using the english version this was placed within the head tags
document.write('<object width="100%" height="100%" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" data="english.swf" >');
document.write('<param name="classid" value="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" />');
document.write('<param name="pluginurl" value="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,24" />');
document.write('<param name="movie" value="english.swf" />');
document.write('<param name="quality" value="best" />');
document.write('<param name="menu" value="false" />');
document.write('<param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" />');
document.write('<param name="allowScriptAccess" value="sameDomain" />');
document.write('<param name="bgcolor" value="#000000" />');
document.write('<param name="scale" value="noscale" />');
document.write('<param name="wmode" value="window" />');
I have also noticed that an iPAD visited my wbe site indicatingn to me that it works on an iPAD and by virtue that this method of flash embedding works with the above borwser types; it is I think a cross-browser method.
To see this in action feel free to visit my web site and look at the index.html, english.html or the german.html code to see this implemented; the web site is www.mirana.net
Now my questions is:
1. is this a good method and why? or why not?
2. can this be placed mainstream ?
Thank you for reading this and be merciful in responses
I am a beginner Dreamweaver and Flash CS3 user and I am having problems with PC browsers displaying my background color and font styles. Everything works fine in mac browsers.
I have been using Dreamweaver for really basic stuff for over a year and have never had this problem before. However for this project, I embedded a few Flash components so I am wondering if this is causing the problem. My embedded flash videos and slideshows work fine in both browsers. The only problem is the background color and font style in PC browsers.
I have never posted to a forum before but I am spinning my wheels on this. It seems like there could be a simple solution or explanation....however I can't seem to find any solutions online.
Any help or guidance would be amazing!
