Inserting and editing media objects

Inserting and editing media objects

You can insert Flash SWF files or objects, QuickTime or Shockwave movies, Java applets, ActiveX controls, or other audio or video objects in a Dreamweaver document.

To insert a media object in a page:

  1. Place the insertion point in the Document window where you want to insert the object.
  2. Insert the object by doing one of the following:
    • In the Common category of the Insert bar, click the Media button and select the button for the type of object you want to insert.

      This is a picture of the feature being described.

    • Select the appropriate object from the Insert > Media submenu.
    • If the object you want to insert is not a Flash, Shockwave, Applet, or ActiveX object, use the Netscape Navigator plug-in button (the puzzle piece icon in the Insert bar) to insert it. For more information, see Inserting Netscape Navigator plug-in content.

    In most cases, a dialog box appears letting you select a source file and specify certain parameters for the media object.

  3. Complete the Select File or Insert Flash dialog box.
  4. Click OK.

    The Object Tag Accessibility Attributes dialog box appears if you have activated the dialog box in Preferences (see Optimizing the workspace for accessible page design).

    This is a picture of the feature being described.

  5. If the Object Tag Accessibility Attributes dialog box appears, complete the dialog box and click OK.

    For more information, see Setting the Object Tag Accessibility Attributes dialog box options.

    The media object appears in the document.

    To specify a source file, or to set dimensions and other parameters and attributes, use the Property inspector for each object. For information about editing accessibility attributes for an object, see Editing accessibility attributes for media objects.
