Embedding an SWF on WordPress

This is going to be pretty easy actually, using a nifty little tool from vodpod:

  1. Go here and drag the icon to your bookmark bar
  2. Go to a website containing your swf. Here is where you have to be careful: some websites will work with the tool and others won’t. I’ve found that YouTube and SwfCabin work, but MegaSWF does not.
  3. Click the bookmark you just added and it should select your swf automatically. Then fill out the information and either post it directly or send it to be edited.
  4. That’s pretty much it: be sure to preview it first.

I wish vodpod would just give you the code instead of forcing you to type in your username and password, but I believe they are a trustworthy tool.

Here’s a movie off YouTube:

Vodpod videos no longer available.

And here is a random one from SwfCabin, where you can upload your swfs.

Vodpod videos no longer available.

If anyone has a top-notch free swf hosting site that works with vodpod, let me know.
