How to upload and embed Flash SWF file

This is a simple step-by-step guide that will enable you to upload and embed Flash (.swf) files to your website or blog.

Tutorial:

1. Make your Flash file (.swf) with Adobe Flash Studio, Aleo Flash Intro Banner Maker or any Flash banner maker available.

2. Register to a free account at HotlinkFiles.com. It offers 1 GB of file storage service and is free, fast and reliable. MegaSWF.com is another option but the sluggishness is discouraging.

Update: Another impressive file hosting service is http://www.fileave.com/. It offers 50MB of file storage.
  • Upload your Flash SWF file
  • Get the URL which will look similar to this:
http://www.hotlinkfiles.com/files/2457_qrb/idm.swf]idm.swf
3. Embed on your web site or blog.

For Blogger:
  • Login to your account.
  • Go to Layout, click Add a Gadget and then select HTML/JavaScript.
  • Paste the following code:
  • <embed src="[Flash file URL]" quality="high" allowscriptaccess="always" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" align="middle" height="100" width="250"></embed>
  • Replace [Flash file URL] with the correct URL from HotlinkFiles.com.
  • Also, replace the width and height (in green) as desired, Save and you're done.
