This is more difficult then posting youtube stuff, so if you were confused by that, then you probably should just stop reading now

Step 1: Find the flash thing that you want to post - for this example ill use the animation thats over at http://www.ultimateshowdown.org/

Step 2: Once youve found the flash you want to use click on View up at the top left or your browser(where file, edit and all that stuff is), while the flash thing is on your screen

Step 3: In the View menu there should be something called view page source, or page source, it will have source in the name, click on that

Step 4: Clicking on view page source will bring up this thing thats full of text and html code, in the window with all that stuff go to Edit at the top left(where file and view are)

Step 5: Go down to Find in the Edit menu and click it

Step 6: Type .swf into the search text field and click search

Step 7: Your looking for something that looks like a link that ends in .swf, so it might take several searches for swf to find the link - for what im using as an example its the first result

Step 8: Once you find the link that ends with .swf copy everything from the http at the beginning of the link to and including .swf - in this example it would be http://uploads.ungrounded.net/285000/285267_ultimateshowdown.swf

Step 9: Somewhere near that link there will be height and width numbers these will be important for the next step, so make sure you either keep the page source window open, or remember these numbers

Step 10: Now come back to the forums and type [flash(width,height)], where width and height are the numbers I told you to keep - in this example you would type [flash(480,360)] since those are the numbers called width and height near that link

Step 11: Now paste the link

Step 12: Now close the flash tag with [/flash] right after the link - so the whole thing for this example would be
Code:
 [flash(480,360)]http://uploads.ungrounded.net/285000/285267_ultimateshowdown.swf[/flash]

Step 13: Now watch your flash animation -





Theres some rules and exceptions to this though

1. If the height and width numbers are %s you cant use that flash animation
2. You dont need to use the width and height that are there, you can resize it to w/e you want, but using the width and height thats there is usually a good idea
3. Some flash videos (like from redtube) will not work properly (you only get the video player, with the play button and seek bar, but without the actual video) (not that i actually tried posting any videos from redtube here..... yet, i just know it probably wont work)
4. Because of the nature of the forum you might end up with weird results when playing games, clicking on the game itself should fix anything like that
6. Music wont start playing until you look at the flash
7. To stop music, and the flash itself, right click on it and click Play (yeah, play stops it, somebody was high when they were making that menu)
8. I skipped 5
9. Some flash will never scale correctly no matter what height and width you put it at (you end up with bad looking white borders), this happens rarely though
10. Some flash will need specific height and width to work, or else it wont display at all

Test it out by posting something cool below

this is pats tutorial i just stole Cool

Hey thats the one from the old site, I was going to make a new one for here but didnt have time
You should probably get rid of the stuff at the top though, about the random pics topic since that doesnt exist here and will confuse people who didnt see the old site


Heres some other stuff about this tutorial:

It's easier to search for .swf instead of just swf, .swf will almost guarantee that the first result is the link you want
I forgot to mention that the flash doesnt have to be open to find the swf link, like on newgrounds you only need to be at the page of the flash (where it says the comments and the rating), but its a good idea to have it on the screen while searching

Actually you cant even watch it with this site since they moved the video on the server i was stealing it from

I mean.....


not stealing...


uhhh..


LOOK A KITTEN!










I feel bad for bringing it here with ach around Sad (read another topic to understand what im talking about)

Anyway
Yeah that might happen, the server you get a video from might delete or move the video, posting the video is fine, like i did, but hosting it is illegal (i know it deosnt make sense, i didnt make up the rules)
So i cant mirror the family guy video on my own server like i normally would, without having my server shut down, and im too lazy to fix it in the tutorial cause the same thing will just keep happening, but i think everyone gets what the tutorial is trying to show without actually showing it
