Although I’ve been using SWFObject almost daily, I’ve always recycled the version I used on a previous project. Little did I know that a new version was released by Geoff Sterns (who know works for Google in the YouTube division) and is posted on Google’s codebase.
A new version means a new syntax, new file and most importantly, new features. It’s also worth noting that the JS file was compressed, so if I recall correctly, you’re saving a few KB this version.
Check it out here: http://code.google.com/p/swfobject/
I will have a tutorial up some time this week simplifying the details on how to use it.
