swf2.html:

<html>
  <head>
    <meta http-equiv="Content-Type" content="text/html" charset="UTF-8" />
  </head>
  <body>
    <object width="215" height="140">
      <param name="movie" value="choudanse7us.swf">
        <embed src="file:///mnt/sdcard/choudanse7us.swf"
               width="215" height="140">
        </embed>
    </object>
  </body>
</html>

below is the android code

package webView.video;
import android.app.Activity;
import android.os.Bundle;
import android.os.Environment;
import android.webkit.WebView;


public class WebViewActivity extends Activity {
private WebView mWebView;

/** Called when the activity is first created. */
     @Override
     public void onCreate (Bundle savedInstanceState) {
         super. onCreate (savedInstanceState);
         setContentView(R.layout.main);



         // html file with sample swf video in sdcard

         //swf2.html points to swf in sdcard

         mWebView = (WebView)findViewById(R.id.webview);
         mWebView.getSettings().setJavaScriptEnabled(true);
         mWebView.getSettings().setPluginsEnabled(true);
         mWebView.getSettings().setAllowFileAccess(true);


         if (!Environment.getExternalStorageState().equals(Environment.MEDIA_MOUNTED)){
             System.exit(4);
         } else {
             mWebView.loadUrl("file://" + Environment.getExternalStorageDirectory() + "/swf2.html");
         }

     }
}
