    Default SWF Files

    How do you use a shock wave flash file? Do you upload it to a webhost? If so then how do you do it? Do I need a special .txt?

    Host it, then embed it on the page.

    Here's a quick example:

    [code]<object width="x" height="y">
    <param name="movie" value="file.swf">
    <embed src="file.swf" width="x" height="y">
    </embed>
    </object>[/code]

    If you have it on your HDD and just want to look at it instead of host it, you can do a couple of things:

    - Open Internet Explorer, drag and drop the file into the window. You'll want to resize the window to be smaller so that it doesn't slow down
    - If you have Media Player Classic it plays them fine on my PC. It might just be due to the fact that I've installed the "defiler pack" video filter pack (it's an alternative to video codecs).
    - If you've installed Macromedia Flash (the application used to create SWF files), which you obviously haven't, it has it's own special Flash player utility. I'm unsure of whether this is available as a separate download, I haven't bothered looking around for it.
