Posting SWF videos in LJ!

Woooooooooot! Three Cheers and a cookie for me! I finally figured out how to convert my videos into SWF (Shockwave Flash) && embed ’em into LJ! This was a TRICK and a half¡ For some reason the <lj-embed…> thingy only seems to work w/Youtube for me?! Anyway, this DOES work!: 1) In Kino, export as Other.tool=Flash Dual Pass, Profile=Broadband Quality SQF..medium size. 2) Use this little incantation!:

<lj-embed id="24">
<object classid="clsid:D27CDB6E-AE6D-11cf-96B8-444553540000" codebase=",0,16,0" width="###" height="###">
<param name="movie" value="http://[URL_OF_YR_STUPID_VIDEO].swf" />
<param name="quality" value="high" />
<param name="play" value="false" />
<param name="loop" value="false" />

Also, the html “<code>” tag works great for keeping this from wrapping all over the place <TABLE> tags are your friend too!
