Embedding Flash Movies Into WordPress.com Posts
I’ve been trying desperatly to embed a personal made flash video into my post. I know if i have my own site and install wordpress the template and program i can do it, but i do not have my own site. I want to find out, if at all possible, how to embed a flash video from another site into a post of mine.
I have tried to disable rich text editor. And enter in straight code, but as soon as i click update, wordpress.com seems to remove the code.
Here is an example of what i have been trying to add into a post of mine.
<object classid=”clsid:d27cdb6e-ae6d-11cf-96b8-444553540000″ codebase=”http://fpdownload.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=8,0,0,0″ width=”200″ height=”200″ id=”main” align=”middle”>
<param name=”allowScriptAccess” value=”sameDomain” />
<param name=”movie” value=”http://www.freakyfreaky.net/escalix/portfolio/main.swf” />
<param name=”quality” value=”high” />
<param name=”bgcolor” value=”#000000″ />
<embed src=”http://www.freakyfreaky.net/escalix/portfolio/main.swf” quality=”high” bgcolor=”#000000″ width=”200″ height=”200″ name=”main” align=”middle” allowScriptAccess=”sameDomain” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” pluginspage=”http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer” />
flash isn’t currently enabled on wordpress.com.
the only part that’s essential is the <embed /> part
dang >< thanks sunburntkan
i wonder if they will ever enable flash on wordpress :( maybe its a security issue.
Do you have any plan to offer a flash plugin just like for videos?
With a plugin, security risks that exist in the embed tag will be theoretically minimized, just as you do for video embedding.
And I think badwidth will not be a problem as long as you just allow us to link to the externally hosted swf files.
That’s a policy question and I just moderate the forums here. Best bet would be to send in a Feedback from your Dashboard and ask staff.
