Embedding storyline as an object in a webpage

Hi, I use a lot of engage and quizmaker files by embedding them into pageson Moodel. I've tried to do the same with Storyline, and it throws up an error about not being able to locate data.swf. I can embed as an iframe, but that has downsides when you use different resolutions.

I was just wondering if it is possible to embed the story.swf file as an object, and if so, what I'm doing wrong...

I too have come across this issue. I'll be looking into it more to see if there is a way around it.

But at this point I'm thinking that they've written some (javascript/actionscript) that derives the folder structure from the current URL. Hence why it works in an iFrame and not while embedded. This may prove to be a rather large issue, that may not be fixable.

Hopefully I can find a fix. But this may simply always require an iFrame. :/

The problem with iframes is that if someone has a computer with a different resolution, they can end up scrolling up and down and left and right to see everything. At least with an object, it resizes relevant tot he page you are on and resolution you are viewing in.

Let me know if you work anything out. I'll keep trying too!

We are struggling with this too.  Going to submit a feature request for a way to directly embed Storyline objects in HTML without the use of iframes. It can be done with Captivate, so I'm hoping something similar could be done with Storyline.

Hi!  I'm trying to embed my Storyline project into our company's Google site (Intranet) and have used the iframe information from the link above to no avail. For the "URL" I have used the ftp information (ftp://user@......../story.html).  Do you have any guidance as to what I might be doing wrong?

Thank you in advance for any help!!
