An easier way first, then a more detailed explanation if you check this web page for instructions on how to manually insert the HTML code required to show movies (SWF), like the ones made with Jing.

Otherwise, you could use the following instructions (summarised from this photobucket forum entry):

<embed width=”xxx” height=”yyy” type=”application/x-shockwave-flash” src=”filename or URL for swf file goes here></embed>

Replacing the following text in the code above:

  • xxx is the pixel width of image
  • yyy is the pixel height of image
  • filename or URL for swf file goes here is replaced with the URL code from under your swf file in your Photobucket account.

A couple of tutorials I made, the quality (and Design Specs.) are different. Both were done in 2 days/sessions or less, they’re what I call ‘rush jobs’, but they’ll give you an idea of what you should be able to accomplish in 2 or 3 hours on a Mac using Jing:

OpenOffice Calc (Mac)

Another example, this one created in Windows

Foxmarks, a Firefox Add-on (Windows):

Also, take a look at Matthew’s Tutorial on Google Sketchup.

The best free software to capture screenshots (static pictures or “photos” of your computer screen) or screencasts (short video clips of what you are doing in your computer screen) is Jing. Techsmith has better paid alternatives (Snagit, Camtasia Studio), but then again, they’re not as cheap as free.

Jing comes in Mac OS X and Windows flavours, is a free download, and you can find lots of information (FAQs) and tutorials on how to use it at the developers’ blog.

In our case, I recommend you to save the captures as files to your Local storage to be later embedded into a webpage.

Many of you have commented on not being able to edit Jing’s SWF videos.

If you want a more powerful application, the “professional”, alternatives to Jing are Adobe Captivate and Camtasia Studio. Both have trial versions that you may want to use. Windows only. These two are not free, obviously.

Enjoy!
