Re: [Flashcoders] Properly embedding flash with html.

2008-02-04 Thread Glen Pike
I use SWFObject, don't like the other as it adds JavaScript to the HTML 
page rather than putting it in an external file.


I also find SWFObject easier to add parameters and express install to as 
well.

Hello everyone,

Question:
When embedding a flash movie in HTML - 
Is everyone using the Publish settings that flash CS3 comes with  AC_RunActiveContent.js etc or 
is the SWF OBject still the preferred way?

Re: [Flashcoders] Properly embedding flash with html.

2008-02-04 Thread Jason Lutes
There are several problems with the Adobe code/solution, and at least 
one was already mentioned. My biggest complaint about it was that its 
JavaScript was so poorly written. (It even generated malformed mark-up 
at one point.)


Another complaint I have with the Adobe code/solution is one I also have 
for SWF Object. The list of function arguments that are expected when 
embedding Flash media is unnecessarily cumbersome.


I use a custom solution for embedding my Flash media, in order to keep 
the JavaScript file size down (to under half of the SWF Object 
footprint), to more efficiently (code-wise) do the same kinds of 
(essential) embedding tasks, and to provide a simpler interface for 
embedding.


It has proven to carry a higher degree of sensible usability (over UFO, 
SWF Object, the Adobe hack, or other) for coding neophytes, as verified 
by co-workers who have harnessed it.

Hi Jason.

This custom solution sounds very interesting.  Would you like to share it
with others? Or refer to a similar solution? :-))

Re: [Flashcoders] Properly embedding flash with html.

2008-02-04 Thread Jason Lutes
Since I disrespected SWF Object a little in my last post, I should 
backtrack a little to say that, since it's becoming de facto (despite 
what I feel are some typical usability oversights), and if you're 
already comfortable using it, then you should probably just continue to 
use it.


I'm considering whether or not to post what I use somewhere. I may just 
offer streamlining suggestions or coding alternatives to Geoff, Bobby, 
et al via http://code.google.com/p/swfobject/ instead, although they 
seem pretty committed to the development direction already.

I do the same as you...  never been a fan of Adobe's code or swfobject.
