Insert a Flash Movie

How to insert Flash.

While inserting images is supported in C1 CMS out-of-the-box, inserting a Flash animation requires that you install our free Flash-support add-on.

This page explains how to use the Flash-support add-on. But since website developers may prefer other techniques for handling Flash content, don't be surprised if your own CMS solution takes another approach.

Before taking steps described below, make sure you've installed the Composite.Media.FlashViewer add-on (System / Packages / Available Packages / Composite.Media).

  1. In Visual Editor, click Insert | Function and select the Composite.Media.FlashViewer function.

  2. In the Function Properties dialog, select the Flash File you want to insert, specify the Width and Height of the embedded animation on the page.
  3. Optionally, you can also choose whether you want the animation to Repeat playing and indicate the Flash Version required to play the animation.
  4. Click OK and save the page.

When you preview the page, you will see your Flash animation being played.
