How to Embed Flash Movies Into Email

Embedding flash movies into e-mail requires copying and pasting a simple code around the video you want to embed. It is more convenient for the person receiving the email to watch the video directly from the Inbox folder than to have to go watch it on the actual site where the video is hosted.

Skill level:


  1. 1

    Copy and paste this code into your e-mail:

    <object width="212" height="175"><embed src="YOUR CODE HERE" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" width="212" height="175"></object>

  2. 2

    Copy the URL of the video and paste it into the part of the code that says "YOUR CODE HERE." Delete the "YOUR CODE HERE" text.

  3. 3

    Finish writing your e-mail and then send it to the email recipient.

Tips and warnings

  • This will only work if your e-mail is enabled with HTML.
