I have created a flip book style .indd and exported it as a .swf. It works fine when it runs on my PC. What do I need to do to deploy the project to website?

Thanks,

Robert

Lots of luck? Most modern web browsers are pulling support for SWF. Moreover, the 2020 version of InDesign no longer supports placing or exporting Flash. You'd be much better off using PDF. It doesn't have the “flipping” effect, but your documents will be readable into the indefinite future.

Flash is obsolete, don't use it, use something like this: http://fliphtml5.com

in5 can export the same flipbook style from InDesign, but in HTML format (so it works on modern browsers):
