OPTION 1:<TD> background

This is an easy fix if you're using Flash MX or higher. With the introduction of Flash MX, we have the option to make our flash movies have transparent backgrounds, which allows anything behind it (like a <TD> background) to be seen. In this case, make your movie without any fixed background and go to File -> Publish Settings. Now choose the HTML tab and change the Window Mode: value to be "Transparent Windowless" and publish it. Make sure to copy the object tag from the newly published HTML file to your final HTML file if different. You should notice 2 tags that look like the following:


If those aren't there, then you didn't set the Window Mode correctly. Now take your fixed background and add that as a <TD background="my_flash_background.gif"> to your HTML. You may need to play around with alignment inside your flash movie a bit, but this works great.

» Description: Hmm... what to say about this one? It's reminiscent of the closing notes of the opening music from the Three Stooges done in a church organ style with a closing cymbal crash. I'll give this one away gratis, but feel free to check out my free loops and potential upcoming license-mandated ones over in the respective part of Flashkit.
