Change Flash website

Hi everyone,
I'm trying to get the main Flash image on my website to be on its own page and embed into index.html. I can't seem to do this. I don't have the software to edit the Flash image.
I actually have the Flash bits and pieces in the Public section of my website so it would be quite easy for someone to go in and change it. The web address is www.indisincitive.com

Would someone mind going in and changing it or giving me a step by step on how to do it?

What do you mean by public section??

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

I'm sure it's possible for external users to get to the 'public' folder.
Maybe it's just a good idea to tell me how to do it?

dan390339, I assume you mean the flash files are on a ftp folder that is open to the public, but I dont think this is a good idea.

1. EE policy is we can only tell you how to do somthing, and cannot do it for you. Therefore, if you don't own macromedia flash we can be of no assistance to you.

2. Even if we did look at your files to see how to help you we would need the fla's not swf's

3. Changing the url in your flash "movie" not picture is relitivaly simple, but you should at least download a trial version for now.

Actually I can't find the link only~~

Ok there~~

The method here is simple,

Open a notepad or any text editor you like
Put in the following code

<!DOCTYPE HTML PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD HTML 4.01 Transitional//EN"
<meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html; charset=big5">
<title>Untitled Document</title>

<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,29,0" width="32" height="32">
  <param name="movie" value="http://www.indistinctive.com/something.swf">
  <param name="quality" value="high">
  <embed src="http://www.indistinctive.com/something.swf" quality="high" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" width="32" height="32"></embed>

Remind that you have to change the two www.indistinctive.com
And change the two width and height settings~

Save the file as index.html

I think this is what you want to do, to put the .swf inside a .html
If you don't want to do this, please let me know.

Vicker :)

I can see your flash embedded properly. source indicates that swf-s reside at http://www.indistinctive.com/with_flash/html/flash/

What's the problem ,again?
