Flash content in web pages to be opened in metro IE

    Question

  • I need to embed a .swf (flash) file in my web page. The web page and its assets are located on local hard drive. I used to embed it for IE like this:

        <OBJECT classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0" WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="240" id="Yourfilename" ALIGN=""><PARAM NAME=movie VALUE="Yourfilename.swf"> <PARAM NAME=quality VALUE=high> <PARAM NAME=bgcolor VALUE=#333399> <EMBED src="Yourfilename.swf" quality=high bgcolor=#333399 WIDTH="320" HEIGHT="240" NAME="Yourfilename" ALIGN="" TYPE="application/x-shockwave-flash" PLUGINSPAGE="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer"></EMBED> </OBJECT> 

    But it does not work for metro IE 10 on windows 8. IE 10 in metro mode can not open this. How can I fix this for IE in metro mode?

  • You cannot embed Flash into a Metro app.  They can only be run in the browser.  For Metro, you should look into using the <video> tag as the supported way to show video.
