Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 2.5. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle may be available here: Flash.

Flash content can easily be included in your courses.

If you have the multimedia filter enabled then simply linking to the file in an HTML area such as a label, HTML block or section description will also display the Flash file inline. At the moment all flash files will play at the same size site-wide by default. However, you can control display size by adding the following parameters to the link to specify size: ?d=widthxheight eg ?d=800x600 is 800 pixels wide 600 pixels high.

There are also other ways to achieve sizing control. See the forum posts below for some hacks.

You can use HTML code and the object tag to set individual movie sizes which will work with most browsers except Microsoft's Internet Explorer

<object width="600" height="400" classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase="http://download.macromedia.com/pub/shockwave/cabs/flash/swflash.cab#version=6,0,0,0"> <param name="movie" value="http://yoursite.org/file.php/2/movie.swf" /> <param name="quality" value="high" /> <embed width="600" height="400" src="http://yoursite.org/file.php/2/movie.swf" quality="high" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" /></object>
