How to insert moving animation using HTML?

  1. Hi tthere I have created a Simpsons avator which walks and I would like to insert it in my blog. I have a HTML code but when I insert it into a post in the HTML part and press save it compresses into just a code for the Simpsons logo so I take it the moving video doesnt work.. How can I do this? It's neither a Google, Youtube, Vodpod or Daily Motion so is there some kind of extra HTML I have to add? Like <video= I dont know.. something to that effect?

    See here for an example of how I would like it to appear: http://www.princesseemma.com/2008/10/this-is-princessemma-simpsons-character.html

    Thankyou!

  2. Simple answer: No can do on wordpress.com. It's a Flash movie http://www.simpsonsmovie.com/content/walkcycle/town.swf?aid=6429149 and Falsh is not allowed on wordpress.com: http://faq.wordpress.com/2006/10/23/can-i-add-flash-video-embed-other-media/

  3. Ahhhhhh i see... well I'll just have to content myself with just the image then..

    Thanks for responding!!!

  4. You could do a GIF animation.

  5. Oh really? Ooh.. I dont really know much about GIF and I've already published it.. but next time I'll look into it - Thank you!

  6. I didn't either, but Google GIF animation. My experiment was done with Photoshop/Imageready. There is a youtube about how easy it is to do. That said, they are kind of annoying on a blog. I just wanted to see if I could do it…

  7. You should be able to find an online converter to make it a GIF, and that's embeddable in a WP blog.
