Any video files or flash files (.swf)...

I tried using the option - add action - >Display html panel in advance designer.

Tried by embedding the flash file (.swf) in html.. then tried to display html in the intaller panel.. but could find that the html forms are visible in the panel but the embedded media is not playing..


thanks a lot!

AFAIK there is no built in option for playing media in IA. You might want to try using custom code. But also you should remember that playing a flash file would need a Flash player, and the same it is true for any media file (you need a suitable player for that). And unless your installation is really long, I would personally would find extremely annoying any unwanted sound that would start by itself (the same, I hate web pages with autoplay etc.)
