What's in your browser?

Unable to detect a flash player (JavaScript is disabled).

Flash example: Microsoft ActiveX component

This page uses the <object> for flash the way it is implemented by Microsoft. There is a classid attribute, that tells the browser what ActiveX component to use. If it doesn't work on your browser, then you'll see an empty grey rectangle or the fallback content.

The code

The code example below sets off a 300x120 pixels area of the page to either show the movie or the fallback content. If the content takes up more space than 300x120 pixels then the webbrowser will introduce scrollbars. This is to avoid distortion of the page.

Inside the <object> element there is a <div>. It contains the textual fallback content, and will mainly be seen by Google, but sometimes humans. It can contain regular HTML code.

<object id="flash" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000"
        codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0"
        width="300" height="120">
 <param name="movie" value="flash.swf" />
 <param name="quality" value="high" />
 <param name="bgcolor" value="#EEEEEE" />
  <div style="width:300px; height:120px; overflow:auto">
