Doesn’t code snippet already allow flash?
Well it does, but you may have noticed your Playlist.com code may not fully work within the code snippet. Sure the graphics pop up but the flash code itself is missing. Here’s an example of Code Snippet using the proper embed code.
As you can see in the picture above, the music player doesn’t show up even though the embed code is correct. The Code Snippet module allows flash but under a very specific code. What makes this code difficult, is that you will have to cut and paste the flash code into bebo’s special format. We’ll take you step by step on what you need to do to get Playlist.com and other flash examples working correctly.
Please pay attention to the steps carefully. Playlist.com code insertion is listed on the second page.
How does Bebo handle Flash?
Bebo uses flash through it’s own SNML protocol. SNML is pretty similar to HTML, but there are some slight differences. You may have noticed that both the About Me and Code Snippet modules say SNML. This is where you would paste Bebo’s SNML code.
Step 1: Find your src=
The first thing you must locate is your src= code. This src code begins immediately after the after the equal sign. Highlight the code your flash application gave you. You must highlight from the first quotation mark up to the next quotation mark. After you highlight this code, right click and press copy. The example below shows a Vimeo video code.
"http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=2072369&server=vimeo.com&show_title=0&show_byline=0&show_portrait=0&color=14c963&fullscreen=1" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowfullscreen="true" allowscriptaccess="always" width="400" height="225"> </embed>
The code that follows src= is highlighted in blue. This is the code you will paste into Bebo’s flash code in Step 2. Use the scrollbars to see where the blue code begins and ends. Note there are only two quotation marks.
You should not have more than 2 quotation marks at this point. Later on we can add more quotation marks.
Step 2: Bebo’s Flash Code
<sn:swf swfsrc="insert swf or flash src code here">
Take the blue code you copied in Step 1 and replace it over the purple text in Step 2.
Step 3: Paste your flash SRC code inside Bebo’s SWFSRC code
If you insert the code correctly you will have it show up like this. There should only be 2 quotation marks in your entire code up to this point.
Bebo’s flash code can also scale by width and height. You can do this by adding this to your code.
Replace xxx with the number of pixels you want it to be. Your code could end up looking like this.
<sn:swf swfsrc="http://vimeo.com/moogaloop.swf?clip_id=2072369&server=vimeo.com&show_title=0&show_byline=0&show_portrait=0&color=14c963&fullscreen=1" width="199" height="160">
That about end it. If you need more help the next page will explain the exact same method with Playlist.com
This issue has been floating around for a couple of weeks now. It has not been addressed by AOL at all. Some users will receive “Unable to save your changes at this time.” error messages when trying to edit their AIM Profiles. This usually occurs when all profile information has been mysteriously deleted.
There have been a small amount of users who have noticed their profiles are back in working order. This has been fixed by AOL.
Unable to change Private Profile to Public
Also we’ve been receiving reports about users unable to switch between private and public profiles because the options are grayed out. Please keep in mind that until your screen name hits its sixteenth birthday, you will not be able to change it to a public profile.
Code Snippet Module Removed
In another upset, AOL has removed the Code Snippet module due to bugs, it is expected to come back at an unknown date.
As Randy Falco, CEO of AOL, gets closer to his dream of making AOL the most profitable advertising network, users were treated with a brand new ad inside the buddy info. These ads now take up a considerable amount of space at the bottom of the buddy info. The window is now stuck at a much larger width than before
This did not set off well with the AIM userbase, as there have been complaints about this new ad system:
“THANK YOU PEOPLE FOR UNDERSTANDING HOW ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS THIS IS!!! I HATE WHAT YOU HAVE DONE TO THE BUDDY INFO BOX, I CAN’T STAND IT!! ITS ANNOYING AND POINTLESS AND MAKES THE BUDDY INFO LOOK LIKES ITS NOT ABOUT BUDDY INFO AT ALL” ~DanceStar
“EPIC FAIL FOR AIM.” ~nj
“AIM MANAGEMENT NEEDS TO WAKE UP” ~a concerned mother
” SUCH A SMALL CHANGE AND I WANNA RIP MY EYES OUT >> GET RID OF THE ADS !” ~Robby
“Your actually doing negative advertising for these companies. SCREW VERIZON…the first company to buy the ad. I make a point to never buy any product of people you advertise for. STOP ALREADY.” ~jimmy
As you can see from all those CAPS LOCKS, people are enraged over this! I did notice that there was not much complaints against the text ads AOL placed in the buddy info, maybe they should reconsider implementing that instead.
In other news, AIM has added more integration with AIM profiles by adding a “Profile Buddies” tab in the Buddy Info.
Also Note AimAdHack now removes these Ads.
