Embed SWF

A few years ago I did a project that was in the Instructables format. The only thing is that it's a SWF file and I wanted to embed it into my instructable. I've added it to my file library but it will only show up as an attachment. I know I can upload as a slideshow or video, but the project has it's own navigation. The link to the actual content I'd like to put up is here. The only question I really have is if I can embed this swf directly to page 1 of the instructable so that the navigation is intact and still functional. Thanks for any help!

Embed Instructable videos on internet foruns

Hi there! Being a huge fan of instructables.com and also the administrator of internet forum about Mercedes-Benz trasnsformed vans, I would like to know if it is possible to have a way to post the videos available for blogs and sites also on foruns. I tried it with BBcode but being not very used to programing gave no luck. I've checked with the support team of the forum and they mentioned "BBCode/HTML replacement" that is not available, If it would be, embeding would be easy... What do you have to say about this?

Embedding things other than video

Hi, I'm looking for a way to embed things other than videos into my instructable.

embedding video

I am trying to get some video embedded in my instructable, yet nothing shows up. I have followed the same process of uploading and using the embed code per several of my other instructables, yet now it seems like it's just stopped working. my process: Upload video to youtube, wait for youtube to do its thing, copy embed code and paste into 'embed video' in the rich editor. While editing it shows the placeholder for the video, and the source code shows the right html for the video. When I preview the placeholder is gone and the text flash animation is displayed where video should be. Youtube setting is 'unlisted', which enables embedding. My other videos have the same settings and have worked in previous instructables. Windows 7 FF 3.6.10 help!

Embed a github repo into an instructable?

When authoring an instructable, it says you can embed a github repo. I tried all the different URLs I could think of, but none of them worked in the preview. I ended up just linking to the code repo instead of embedding it. How the heck does one go about embedding the code directly? I don't want to have a second place to maintain the code, and it seems like embedding it should be fairly simple, but I must be missing something.

Making proper instructables seems to be impossibel :(

I am trying to re-work an Instructable so it looks nicer and is easier to follow. This includes getting some videos inside the text, something that can be done in this editor with the click of a button. So far I tried the various buttons available and even HTML but either the video is just added to the top or in case of html is disappears. Is there any good reason why you are making life so complicated for members? Even a search with Google is fruitless as all results found refer to methods that are outdated and not working. Do I have to activate a proper editor somewhere in the settings, is there a hidden button?? And why the hell are there so many buttons to embed something that only shows up on the top ? In any editor I know I click on embed and it appears at the current cursor position, so why not on this website? It would also really help to remove all those old junk instructables showing how to get a video inside the ible and to replace them with something that works. I have spent now over an hour trying posted methods of getting a video inside my text that simply don't work :(

Vimeo inclusion quirks

It seems Vimeo and Instructables are not the best of friends just yet. I hope they are working on these issues so that including our Vimeo hosted videos is a less frustrating experience in the future. Only If you use the new editor you can embed video with the Vimeo URL, or even simply posting the link in the body will place your video. Save right away. But then... anytime you open your Instructable to edit it moving forward, Instructables removes the video and saves the Instructable (Awesome). You'll have to add it back in again and save for it to reappear. Youtube quality is always improving, but the ad-free playback and greater controls makes Vimeo a winner in my book. I hope Instructables figures out how to get it's editor to play nicer with Vimeo videos sooner than later. Mac 10.9.1 , Chrome Version 27.0.1453.93
