Frequently Asked Questions - Flash Video MX
- How do I embed my swf into an html page?
In the File Tab of Flash Video MX there is an Export HTML option. If you select this checkbox Flash Video MX will automatically output the html code to play the SWF that you are encoding.
If you want to do it yourself, here is a code sample of embedding your effect SWF into a web page:
,0" id="effect" WIDTH="100%" HEIGHT="100%">
<PARAM NAME="movie" VALUE="effect.swf">
<PARAM NAME="quality" VALUE="high">
<PARAM NAME="bgcolor" VALUE="#000000">
<EMBED src="effect.swf" quality="high" bgcolor="#000000" WIDTH="100%"
Set the "HEIGHT" and "WIDTH" values in both the <EMBED> and <OBJECT> tags to
the dimensions of your movie. Set the values to "100%" for the effect to
fill the screen.
The <OBJECT> tags are specific to Internet Explorer and the <EMBED> tags are
for most other browsers, including Netscape. Therefore, both tags are needed
for the Flash SWF to display properly on all browsers. Please make sure that
the attributes in both tags match, otherwise unexpected behavior may result.

Yes. Flash Video MX allows you to set your LOGO to be transparent. After selecting an icon from your hard disc as your logo, you will see a dialog box where you can choose a color from your picture and set it to be transparent. Then you can adjust the “Tolerance” bar to get the effect you want.
- How can I use the product to produce a flash file that will play as soon as it starts loading, instead of loading the whole thing?
Just disable the option "Include movie preloader" on the third page of Flash Video MX.
Once "Include movie preloader" option is not checked, Flash Video MX will not create a loading bar for the video, and the video will auto play when there are enough frames to be played.
Sometimes, you may like your video to pause at the first of the frame, instead of playing immediately, you can click the "advanced settings" on the third page of Flash Video MX, check the "stop when video begins" option.
