Just a quick test of an old scratch file. It seems to have be ‘converted’ to scratch 3 and the embed now works on iOS.
Produces an SVG animation. This is not supported in Internet explorer, as far as I know. So if you are using IE you will not see this:-(
The same very small (375kb) video uploaded directly to a blog and to a sway.
On twitter Craig Wilson asked about embedding Adobe slates. I just grabbed the code from an old one to test. It is not really an embed. It is just an image with a link. It works fine here in glow blogs. You need to switch to the text editor to paste in the html.
Ive not checked to se if Adobe have updated to use oEmbed.
Pauses on hover.
I’ve heard a few folk mention that they would like image sliders in Glow Blogs. A plugin may come at some point, but it is possible at the moment with a wee bit of work.
need want a slider.
Could be adapted to provide nav, the first two images above are links.
Update: I broke this by switching theme which removed the custom CSS fixed

This is a test of embeding flash swf files in a glow blog.
what I did:
- Clicked the Add media button (I just hit the image one due to habit)
- Choose and uploaded a swf file from my desktop.
- Copied the url to the swf from the upload window: https://blogs.glowscotland.org.uk/nl/public/JohnJohnston/uploads/sites/2/2012/10/rommy2.1.swf
- Closed the upload window.
- Clicked on the wee flash button in the edit toolbar.
- pasted in the url
- I was them asked for a width and height in two subsequent dialogs, I took a guess, 500 & 400
- This: kml_flashembed ….a wee bit of code… appeared in my post enclosed in square brackets.
I suspect you need to have the anarchy media pluging enabled to get the wee flash button
Aside, I made this swf back in 2002, flash was the future then;-)
Given the width of the post here I put in 500 pixels for the width, I also use a swf with a full screen button whih is probably a good idea.
