Creating a stand-alone Flash file

Postby gewitty on Thu Nov 15, 2012 7:47 am

I have a job to do using a Weebly web site. On one of the pages I need to embed a Flash file exported from a Freeplane mind-map.

Freeplane can export as Flash, but not as a single stand alone file. In addition to an html file, it outputs a folder with .swf, .mm and .js files.

Weebly offers the ability to embed a stand-alone Flash file on a page, but does not provide for the situation where there are additional file dependencies.

Is there a way of converting the Freeplane output into a single Flash file without the need for additional dependencies?

From the extensions on the files, the .swf file is your stand-alone flash file, the .html file is to embed in a web page, the .js is a javascript file to play the file, and I can assume the .mm file is your mind-map file.

That would seem to be the case. But when embedded, the .swf file only shows the Flash panel and control buttons; the actual graphic content is missing, obviously contained in one of the other files.

I've been continuing my efforts to find a solution to this problem, but with no success so far. If anyone has ideas, I would be most grateful.

My only thought, and I haven't researched it, is that very probably the .mm file is the MindMap file, with the .html, .js, and .swf files being 3 ways to access the contents of the .mm file. Maybe reading the HTML file in a HTML editor will tell you more about getting to the MindMap file.
