    About using Flash in a webpage

    this is kind of a dumb question, should of posted it on Newbies.... so far all the Flash movies i made were exported to AVI then incorperated with a game iam making using a game maker thing

    anyway....how would i have a flash movie play in a webpage..

    such as you go to www.MyMovieForFlash.com thenthe move starts to play... what size should the movie be, also is it possible? then have a button that links to the main page..? and one more thing...anyone know if sites like Geocites can have 3meg flash things on there pages?

    sorry for all the questions but i have never used flash online before

    Do you know anything about HTML? If so, you should find the whole process relatively easy. Basically, when you develop a .fla, you publish it. The default setting in Flash ensures you publish the movie as a .swf, and it also generates an .html (webpage) file for that .swf to be embedded in.

    When you upload the the .html to the web, you also need to upload the .swf in the same directory. Thus your flash movie will be displayed in a webpage.

    Of course, you can tweek the .html to fit you needs using any editor, from notepad to Dreamweaver. The size of the movie is your perogative, though I find that 790x480 fits comfortably into the average visible browser window (that's based on a 800x600 res).

    Play around and see what you come up with.
    Mail me or post back if anything else comes up.

    No problem.

    Though I do find it odd that you published as .avi before doing the basics!!

    Good luck in what you do. Keep me in mind, I can help out if you need.
