Ways to Upload SWF File to Website

I always come across the question asks that: how to upload the SWF files to website? Well, it depends on different circumstances, I ‘ll try to explain according to what I know, if you have something to add, just go ahead and let me know.

Usually, I have two ways to get the source SWF files: online flash making programs and the existed SWF files in my PC.

The former means you produce the SWF file from some online flash making programs. They can be flash banner making programs, flash chart making programs and so on. In this case, you don ‘t have to download and install the program, just do it online according to their instructions. When you finish all the editing and customizing work, the program will generate several lines of codes, and that ‘ s all you need to put in your website.

The latter means the existed SWF file with the extension .swf saved in your computer or produced by Adobe Flash CS5(the latest one). The created SWF files like this works perfectly in Internet Explorer, but doesn’t load in all netscape. Or vice versa. The reason is flash has a lot of issues with its plugin player and browser compatibility. In circumstances such as these you need to be able to convert SWF to animated GIF before uploading to your website.

Again, at least this is what i’m doing right now. Of course, you have many other options like you can directly upload the SWF file to your web server; like you can convert the SWF file to video format first, and then make a player for it, and at last, upload them all to website.

However, convert SWF to animated GIF is the easiest among all the methods because you can easily upload it to your website as the same way you upload a common picture.

Another reason to make it the easiest solution is some of your clients don’t want flash content or do not have the flash plugin. Again, in these situations, you need to be able to convert the .swf file to a .gif file so that you can display the swf image to those particular clients.

I have to emphasize here that convert SWF to animated GIF will not make it ugly! The dynamic effect of the originally SWF file keeps unchanged because you have the frame-by-frame control of the whole conversion progress and you can even customize the frame rate, image size and compression quality etc to ensure a better output.

Convert SWF to animated GIF will not cost you anything either! It ‘s free and available to get within just few clicks.
