    Question Get a flash video to appear on another website

    I have created a transparent flash video (virtual spokesperson) for my website. For demoing purposes, I would like to have this appear on any desired website.

    This is what I am trying to produce - here a virtual spokesperson appears on the sitepoint.com website:
    http://www.innovateads.com/iads/demo....sitepoint.com

    Have a look at other sites which enable one to type in a URL and their demo virtual spokesperson appears on the given site:
    http://www.vspworldwide.com, http://www.impactspokesperson.com, http://www.websitetalkingheads.com and http://www.laserstreamvideo.com.

    I believe they do this within an iframe to display the underlying website. Any ideas how to get this working ? I would really appreciate any feedback, code, how-tos, links... whatever. I am a complete javascript newbie. Thanks

    They are putting the site in an inline frame and layering the Flash over it. Its done with css not Javascript. Inline frames are buggy, but is the easiest solution. An alternative would be to use a server side script that rewrite all the links and placed your code below it. Though this is a much more difficult way of going about it.

    Thanks for your reply eruna. Oh really - css and not javascript. Any ideas of how this can be done, or should I repost on the css forum?

    The flash would have vmode set to transparent. You would use absolute positioning to layer it on top of the frame.
