About Flash Slideshow Embed Syntax


  • OBJECT and EMBED tags:

    The example flash slideshow embed code contains the OBJECT and EMBED tags that reference the actual Macromedia Flash movie file to be opened and played in your web page. The OBJECT tag is used by Internet Explorer on Windows and the EMBED is used by Netscape Navigator (Mac and Windows) and Internet Explorer (Mac) to direct the browser to load the Macromedia Flash Player. For cross browser compatibility, we use both OBJECT and EMBED tags to embed the same flash object.


  • Width/Height:

    They specify the width and height of your flash slideshow. Please note they can be found from both the OBJECT and EMBED tags in the example flash slideshow embed code. Also they can be in

    either pixels or percentage of browser window, such as 400, 400px, or 50%.


  • Classid, codebase and pluginspage:

    They reside in object tag only. Internet Explorer on Windows uses an ActiveX control to play Macromedia Flash content. Classid identifies the ActiveX control for the IE browser while codebase identifies the location of the Flash Player ActiveX control so that the browser can automatically download it if it is not already installed.

    Pluginspage is for EMBED tag only.


  • Movie and SRC:

    The movie parameter is for object tag only, it specifies the location (URL) of the movie to load for IE browser. SRC does the same job as the movie parameter, but it serves other non-IE browsers.


  • Other attributes in the sample embed code for flash

    Among the many attributes and values, only above mentioned are required, the rest are optional, such as id, name, qulity, wmode, etc.
