Dear everyone,

I'm new to css/html/etc stuff, so can you please tell me if it's possible somehow to embed animation files I have along with images on the same page? The files are short looped animations so the format doesn't really matter: I can make them swf/flv/mov, I just need them to play looped and preferably with auto start.

I've tried to upload swf and mov: the swf didn't show on the exhibit (I use over and over), the mov showed the player interface but pressing the play button got me to spinning loading wheel.

I've seen an old post of someone using swf banners on exhibit but I didn't get how he embedded them.

Many thanks,
Sergey.

A common issue that indexhibit participants have is that they forget to use absolute urls with swf files.
As for the .mov files don't forget to export them as streaming for the web.
And try to adjust quality size so the movie is not huge (in Mb).

arsondp, thanks for reply! I might sound stupid but I'm not sure I'm getting the part about absolute urls because I uploaded swf via the upload/import button.
Do I need to modify the actual html-file to edit the url? (I have no idea which one, can you please give me some directions?)

Ooookey I think I got it: I need to embed swf with actual html code where the header is. But that means that other images (loaded via cms) will be always at the end or start of the page and I'll not be able to embed swf in the middle of page? Pity.

I don't understand the problem here...everything is working on that page.

Vaska, there are four elements in cms (image, swf, image, youtube) and only three of them on webpage: two images and youtube video.

Am I right: if I want to put swf in the middle of images I need to write actual html img-tag for every image before my sfw embed?

I see two images and two videos...

The .mov doesn't work probably because it's not setup properly.

ANY asset (image, movie, swf, etc) must have a thumbnail attached to it - this is why your swf does not appear. Just upload anything for the thumb...

Note: some formats, like visual index, use that thumbnail...

Well, attaching a thumbnail doesn't seem to work for me.
Here, I've used
- html for direct embedding
- uploaded the same swf and attached a thumbnail / set a size (screenshot: crazypanda.ru/v/skitch/… )
- and uploaded the same swf and just set a size
crazypanda.ru/v/skitch/…

  1. The result: hardcoded swf works, swf with attachment tries to show an img-tag with swf in it and third one doesn't show at all:
  2. <!-- text and image -->
  3. <embed src='hundredsofsparrows.com/ttw/files/gimgs/…;
  4. <div id='img-container'>
  5. <div class='over'>
  6. <div class='asset'><img src='hundredsofsparrows.com/ttw/files/gimgs/4_11_v2.swf' width='200' height='200' alt='' class='lazyload' /></…;
  7. <div class='spacer'> </div>
  8. </div>
  9. </div>

I don't really understand - this works for me just fine. You probably need to be using the correct format - not all formats work the same. Use Over and Over...

I'm actually using Over and Over. This is weird! So you're saying that simply uploaded swfs should work? Do I need to ask my IT guy if there could be something particular blocking those from working?
