Playing Flash as "embed" elements on Firefox 26
This section provides a tutorial example on how Firefox 26 renders Flash files specified in the 'src' attribute of an 'embed' element.
To see how Firefox handles the Flash provided in the "src" attribute of
an "embed" element, I opened embed_swf.html created in the previous section with Firefox 26
and saw an animation running in all 3 test sections:
What I learned from the result:
- Test 1 shows that Firefox 26 is smart to use the file name extension to determine the content type
and run the Flash Player Plugin to render the flash file.
But the flash file is rendered in a display area of predefine default size, because no "width" and "height" provided.
- Test 2 shows that Firefox 26 works correctly with "width" and "height" provided. "type" attribute is optional.
- Test 3 shows that Firefox 26 recognizes type="application/x-shockwave-flash" as Flash content type.
Firefox 26 also resize the display area based on "width" and "height" attributes.
