Need help with swf...

    Question

  • Hi there,

    I am trying to make a game out of downloaded swf game (I know, its lame, I am a very begginer in programing, so forgive me), so I have put a code in default.html like this:

         <OBJECT CLASSID="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
    
    WIDTH="1366"
    
    HEIGHT="768"
    
    CODEBASE="http://active.macromedia.com/flash5/cabs/swflash.cab#version=5,0,0,0">
    
    <PARAM NAME="MOVIE" VALUE="angry-birds-rio.swf">
    
    <PARAM NAME="PLAY" VALUE="true">
    
    <PARAM NAME="LOOP" VALUE="true">
    
    <PARAM NAME="QUALITY" VALUE="high">
    
    <PARAM NAME="SCALE" value="noborder">
    
    <EMBED SRC="angry-birds-rio.swf"
    
    WIDTH="1366"
    
    HEIGHT="768"
    
    PLAY="true" 
    
    LOOP="true"
    
    QUALITY="high" 
    
    scale="noborder"
    
    PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/shockwave/download/index.cgi?P1_Prod_Version=ShockwaveFlash"> 
    
    </EMBED>
    
    </OBJECT>

    ... and it won't load... it shows it kinda like when you can't load image on a webpage... any idea how to fix this?

    Thanks in advance!

    P.S. I know the thing I have done with default.html is very primitive... Don't blame me, I'm just trying to do something that's easy...

  • Correct.  Metro Style HTML apps are Plugin free.  If you need plugins, then you can create a Desktop application instead in Windows 8.

  • Hello,

    I'm not sure if you are using Windows 8 but the metro style browser does not support plug ins.

    thanks

  • Yes, I am using Windows 8 Developer Preview, and I installed Firefox to use websites that require plugins. I thought I can load swf inside a metro app, that is custom build by me. According to the code I have used, I have directed the app (or let's call it HTML web page, because it basically is a web app...) to the plugin webpage. Is it because metro doesn't support plugins of any kind anywhere maybe? Because I'm not well informed about what metro supports or not.

    Thanks for answering.
