How to add SWF and FLV to your Blogger Weblog using HTML

If you have a YouTube Account then this is easy just follow the embed button after you have uploaded your media

There is at the moment no easy way to do this however if you have the SWF or FLV hosted at another site then you can embed it using these codes

This example shows an embedded shockwave flash banner called valentines_animation.swf that has been uploaded to www.amarasoftware.com and then macromedia flash player is called to play it from the plugins page



All you need to do is copy and paste this HTML and but it into your blog to test to see if it works.


If you want to have a go at creating your own and want to upload it yourself and then use it on your blog then either download the trail version HERE to see what the software has to offer of create one for yourself using Adobe Photoshop and Image Ready check out my FLASH tip on how to do this

If you have created a SWF you can upload it to a FREE SWF server then check out k-directors blog that will tell you where to upload it.

EXAMPLE 1
Register for an Imageshack account the same people who run yfrog
Using ImageShack Uploader you can upload suitable SWF to your online account.

The formats are supported:

  • avi ** - audio video interleave (Xvid,DivX)
  • flv - adobe flash
  • mov - quicktime or sorenson
  • mp4 - mpeg4 (Xvid,DivX)
  • wmv - windows media video
  • 3gp - 3rd Generation standard used on mobiles
  • mkv - matroska used on DivXHD
  • m4v - high quality H264
  • swf - shockwave flash
  • pdf - adobe portable document format
** so if you have an mpg4, divx, xvid rename the file extension to avi

Open the uploader and sign in with your imageshack account details and then drag and drop OR browser for you video media if you use the batch tagger and select if the media is PUBLIC or PRIVATE



When uploaded then all you need to do is to click the get code for website this is the same for a weblog



Then copy and paste the embed code to your blog notice that imageshacks own flvplayer will be used as opposed to the macromedia version in the example above.




EXAMPLE 2

If you use this HTML code to embed your SWF you will still need to use an image hosting website you will need to replace the file_url and the width and height with the URL that the image host gives you and the exact pixel measurements



This method is best used on hosting sites that don't give you the HTML code automatically I prefer the first example for ease , The next example is only for advanced users and is normally used on websites not blogs but if you know how it can still be used with Wordpress powered blogs.


EXAMPLE 3

Using SWFCabin to upload your SWF it will give you a URL where your object has been stored this is an example using a banner from the Internet Download Manager website for advertising and earning 20% of the sale of there software if the link originates from your website.

http://www.swfcabin.com/open/1277814412


With this URL code you will then require a method of posting or embedding the SWF into your site the easiest way to do this is using Javascript as in the example shown above.

On way you can do this is to use SWFObject v2.0 now hosted on Google pages details of how to do this is from deconcepts blog where the earlier versions are still hosted.

This is a more complicated method an should not be attempted by just a beginner, it is essentially written in Javascript and is used to embed Adobe FLV and SWF into websites

How do I put a video on youtube


There are 3 easy ways;
Method 1 : Copy the video from your camera to your computer. Before you upload the video to YouTube, make any edits that you would like, and then make sure that it is converted into a proper format. There are a wide variety of programs and websites that can convert video for free. YouTube accepts the following formats:
  • .AVI (Audio Video Interleaved)
  • .3GPP (3rd Generation Partnership Project)
  • .MOV (QuickTime Movie)
  • .MP4 (Motion Picture Experts Group Part 14)
  • .MPEG or .MPG (Motion Picture Experts Group)
  • .FLV (Adobe Flash)
  • .M4V (h.264)
  • .WMV (Windows Media Video)
  • .WEBM (HTML5)
Method 2: Log in to your account. Each account has its own channel attached to it. Sign in to the account that is associated with the channel that you want to upload the video to.

Method 3: Click the Upload button on the top of the homepage. The Upload button is located to the right of the Search bar.

Hope this helps.

How to post vidios ?


Posting a video from YouTubeIf you've got your own videos on your computer that you want to share on your blog, Blogger now allows you to upload videos directly! If you'd like to share a video from YouTube, you can do that, too.
Embedding a YouTube VideoTo embed a video from YouTube, just follow these simple steps:
  1. Click on the "Share" button underneath the YouTube video.
  2. Select "Show more," and then click on the Blogger icon.
  3. Depending on whether or not you're signed in to your blog, you might have to enter in your username and password in the new window that pops up.
  4. At the top of the new window, choose the blog you would like to post to from the drop-down menu.
  5. Publish your post!

Embedding manuallyAlternatively, you can copy the embed code and paste it into your blog. Just click on "Share" and then on "Embed" to find the embed code. Copy the code, then paste it into your blog while on the "Edit HTML" tab (as opposed to the "Compose" tab).

No problem, I am new to u tube and just want to put a video I took on it. Can you help me please?


miriam colou,
If you haven't already set up a YouTube Account, let's go ahead and do that now. If you already have, skip down to step two.
STEP 1: Create a YouTube Account - go to http://www.youtube.com - in the top-right click 'Create Account' - fill out the information, and click 'I accept. Create my account'
- once you have done this, log into the email account you used to create your account and confirm it by clicking the link in the email.
STEP 2: Upload Your First Video - go to http://www.youtube.com - if you are not already signed in to your YouTube account, click 'Sign In' in the top right. - once you are signed in, you should see several links next to the search bar. - The third link, 'Upload' will take you where you want to go, so click that.
- Click the yellow 'Upload Video' button if you have already created your video. If you want to record one directly from your webcam, you can click the blue link to follow instructions. - Clicking 'Upload Video' will bring up your file-explorer. - Simply browse to the video you want to upload, then double-click it, or select it and click 'Open'
Youtube will automatically begin uploading and processing your video. While it does this you can fill in information like the Title, Description, Tags, etc... It will also give you a URL code which you can use to link your friends to your video, and the embed code if you want to place your video on a website.
Once you're done editing your Video's information, click 'save changes' and you're done! Once YouTube has finished uploading and processing, your video will be able to be viewed!
