Embed SWF in HTML Module on my Vbulletin Forum

Hello All, I am wondering how i would go about embedding an SWF file into an HTML module on Vbulletin cloud? how do i link the SWF file to the HTML module? can i upload the file to my forum then link it to the HTML module? would someone be able to generate a simple HTML script for doing this?

Thank You

Regards.

Graham

You can use <object> and/or <embed> tag. But note some browsers (including modern ones and mobile browsers too) do not support or disable support of Flash for security reasons. Very soon Flash will be dead like IE6 is now. I recommend not using Flash at all.

Thank You for the Response. i used this code:

<object width="400" height="400" data=" https://www.d-gsh.tech/filedata/fetch?id=152 "></object>

after i insert the above code in the HTML module i get the message on the module:

"a plugin is needed to display this content"

so now i am wondering what code should i add to the above code so flash will be supported?

Thank You.

Regards.

Graham

As I've told you, a lot of browsers don't support Flash anymore for security reasons. There's nothing you can do about it.

Your best bet would be to port the Flash file to something like HTML5/JavaScript.

Thank You for the Response, How would i go about "porting" the flash file to HTML 5 / Javascript? is it a fairly lengthy process?

It may or may not take a long time, it depends on what your flash file does and how it functions.
You'll have to find a HTML(5)/JavaScript developer to do this, unless you have the knowledge to port it.

If you tell us what the Flash file does, then we'll probably know if there's already a non-Flash version available out there.
