How to Embed Flash in a Sharepoint Website

I’m currently getting up to speed with using Sharepoint as an intranet solution and had a requirement to embed a Flash object in a webpage. As I found out, it’s not straightforward but possible if you follow a few steps.

  1. Upload your SWF file into the documents library for your site,
  2. Copy the hyperlink to the SWF file as it exists in the library,
  3. Edit the page in which you want to embed the Flash object,
  4. On the Edit tab click on HTML Source,
  5. Paste in the following code:
    1. <Embed src=”RelativeUrlToFlahFile” TYPE=”application/x-shockwave-flash” width=”700″ height=”200″></Embed>
  6. Save your changes.

That should get your Flash object to load 🙂
