  • [Forum] Flash code embed not working, just shows white box

    Please see my example:
    http://www.rightleftdebate.com/threa...?p=641#post641
    using this code:
    <embed src={param} width=450 height=400 type=application/x-shockwave-flash></embed>

    I put in the Code from a site such as this in between the [flash] and the [/flash]
    some url like this:
    http://www.politico.com/largevideobo...id=60932634001
    and it does not work just the white box shows up!

      Is that a custom bbcode?

        Custom code I got from this forum I believe.

            What is the flash source url string you're using as the parameter?

              I just tested this actually got the Flash bbcode to work.
              I do see an error on your part.

              Change this:
              Code:
              <embed src={param} width=450 height=400 type=application/x-shockwave-flash></embed>
              To this:
              Code:
              <embed src="{param}" width="450" height="400" type=application/x-shockwave-flash></embed>
              Edit: Well actually the quotes shouldn't matter because I was able to get this working without the quotes.

                so you used this:
                <embed src={param} width=450 height=400 type=application/x-shockwave-flash></embed>
                Which is the one I could not get working, with this link: http://www.politico.com/largevideobo...id=60932634001 ?

                  when you add the bbcode

                  put {option} to yes

                    I think you need to get the raw swf url path.

                    But the ts is not using the {option} function

                        See if you can embed this: http://www.adobe.com/products/flashp...uee/design.swf
                        If you can then it works.

                          with this code
                          <embed src="{param}" width="450" height="400" type=application/x-shockwave-flash></embed>
                          ==========
                          so my question is NOW:

                          http://www.politico.com/largevideobo...id=60932634001
                          or embeded code like this:
                          <object id="flashObj" width="486" height="412" classid="clsid27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=9,0,47,0"><param name="movie" value="http://c.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f9/19407224001?isVid=1&publisherID=1155968404" /><param name="bgcolor" value="#FFFFFF" /><param name="flashVars" value="videoId=60487033001&playerID=19407224001&domain=embed&" /><param name="base" value="http://admin.brightcove.com" /><param name="seamlesstabbing" value="false" /><param name="allowFullScreen" value="true" /><param name="swLiveConnect" value="true" /><param name="allowScriptAccess" value="always" /><embed src="http://c.brightcove.com/services/viewer/federated_f9/19407224001?isVid=1&publisherID=1155968404" bgcolor="#FFFFFF" flashVars="videoId=60487033001&playerID=19407224001&domain=embed&" base="http://admin.brightcove.com" name="flashObj" width="486" height="412" seamlesstabbing="false" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullScreen="true" swLiveConnect="true" allowScriptAccess="always" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"></embed></object>

                            I think that embed code is pulling flashVars externally which would make it tough for you to utilize that generic Flash bbcode unless you want a custom bbcode specifically for politico videos.

                              well i am really only interested in Admins doing this, so what should I do? I can go to forums/permissions/ admins/ enable html. BUT then what to play the code do what? or to make the "link" work, what should I do?
                              And THANK YOU!
                              Actually, i just went to forum permissions / administrator and did not see the option. Under the Forum directly I see that you can turn on html, however, I do not know how to keep that okay only for Administrators??
