View Full Version : Dispalying swf movies on screen

07-20-2005, 03:10 PM
I want to use javascript to control a swf movie - along the lines of this (http://www.permadi.com/tutorial/flashjscommand/). But to do that I have to use the tag name "embed" -which seems to be forbidden in HTML 4.01 - to insert the movie on screen.

Is there any other way of doing this? This seems to me more of an HTML question than a javascript one - hence this choice of forum.

Sort of. At first glance, this was a mess 3 years ago, and still is. I wonder what w3c are playing at. They seem to have ignored the flash movie problem - particularly when it needs to be controlled by javavscript. :confused:
Thanks for the link, tough. Informative.
