Default Publish Settings – SwfObject

It’s been bugging me for a while that I can export HTML with the AC_RunActiveContent.js embedding method directly from Flash CS3. I can replace the RunActiveContent HTML with a SwfObject Template but I can’t get the Flash IDE to export a copy of the swfObject.js file.

Here’s the solution.

Navigate to:

Library>Application Support>Abode>CS3>en>configuration>HTML>Active Content Files
Backup AC_RunActiveContent.js by renaming it or moving it somewhere else. Paste in a copy of the latest swfobject.js and rename it AC_RunActiveContent.js.

Annoying that it has to be called something else, so I add the following comment after the tag:

//re-named swfObject default export

I’d love to find out how I can use swfObject without having to rename it first.
