Embedding Flash App/Movie on Website

Hi Guys,

I have a flash app/movie consisting of an application EXE file, a couple of swf files, and two folders with more swf files.

I'd like to add this movie/presentation to a website.

I believe it would have been straight forward with a single swf movie file, but not sure how to manage these multiple swf files with the exe app file.

Is there a flash player, or 3rd party widget that I can use to publish this flash application/movie to my site?

The .exe file you have cannot be played through a website, and is only for offline use. Only swfs can play in a browser.

So, I'm guessing that the .exe is your 'main' flash file, and the other two swfs are 'children' to this file, and are loaded into it...

If that's the case, you'll need to decompile the ,exe you have and turn it back into a swf. That swf can then be embedded into an html page, with the new swf, the html page, and the 'child' swfs being uploaded to your server.

To turn the exe back into a swf you can try the (free) tool shown here - http://www.northcode.com/blog.php/2007/08/02/Extract-SWF-files-from-Flash-Executables

You'll then need to create some html to embed that new swf into a web page. You can read more about how to do that here - stackoverflow.com/questions/137326/best-way-to-embed-a-swf-file-in-a-html-page (several ways to do it on that page) or here - http://www.verticalmoon.com/tutorials/general/flashhtml/flashhtml.htm

Thanks, I've managed to extract the SWF files from the exe.

I am now only working with swf files.

From the main swf file, it is calling the other child-swf files from a flash menu.

Is it possible to embed all these files (with respective folders) on the website, so that the main-swf file calls the respective child-swf files?

If the main swf uses relative urls to load in the child swfs, then just drop them all into the same web folder.

You'll need to make an html file to embed the main swf into - see links in prev msg to see how to do that. Then upload the html file you've made into the same web folder and point to the html file with your browser.
